Exploring Brisbane is a Tour de Force
Enhance your Tour de Brisbane experience by taking time to explore the city. Brisbane is geared for the great outdoors with blockbuster events, adventure activities and mouth-watering food. Climb the Story Bridge, cuddle a koala, browse a world-class exhibition, explore craft breweries, cruise or kayak the river or go rock climbing and abseiling with the city as your backdrop.
Make the most of the city’s extensive network of bikeways and shared pathways, with weather that makes cycling a joy all year round. The CityCycle scheme allows you to hire bicycles from stations dotted throughout the city, enabling you to use peddle power to see the sights.
Or join a dedicated cycling tour and discover beautiful bikeways by the river and lush parklands while getting inside information on what makes Brisbane tick. Hit the central business district and take a walking tour that takes in the city’s laneways, fascinating public art and hidden secrets.
Across the river, take a dip in the iconic Streets Beach swimming lagoon, dine at a waterfront restaurant or explore the eye-opening, family-friendly exhibitions and interactive displays in the museums and galleries of the Cultural Precinct – or enjoy a show at the performing arts centre.
Just offshore, cruise across pristine Moreton Bay to discover an island paradise where snorkelling sunken wrecks, sand boarding, surfing, fishing, 4WD-tours, kayaking, wildlife spotting and glamping adventures await. Head inland from Brisbane and discover stunning mountain ranges, World Heritage-listed rainforests, fresh produce and authentic farm experiences.
