The Brisbane by Bicycle Morning Tour offers a scenic and leisurely ride around the best parts of the Brisbane River which means no hills and no cars. The tour visits all of the main inner-city areas of Brisbane with regular stops to tell some stories and take photos.
The 3.5 hours guided tour starts near the Wheel of Brisbane at South Bank Parklands. Meet your guide, who provides a safety briefing, and hop on your city bike with your provided helmet. Then take off, following your guide past Streets Beach, a swimming spot that overlooks the CBD (central business district) and Brisbane River. As you pedal, listen to some tips from your guide about dining and entertainment hotspots you may want to visit during your time in Brisbane.
Check out Kangaroo Point Cliffs, once quarried for stone in the 1800s, and listen to some of the histories of Brisbane, dating back to the native Aboriginals. Continue over the iconic Story Bridge to the charming suburb of New Farm. Ride down tree-lined streets and into New Farm Park, a gorgeous park with riverside picnic spots, cycling paths and playgrounds. Afterwards, head over to Teneriffe to see heritage sites, many of which are being revitalized thanks to recent urban renewal initiatives.
Gradually wind your way back along the waterfront near downtown, where some of Brisbane's finest riverfront restaurants are located. Pedal through the City Botanic Gardens, which boasts outdoor sculptures along with an impressive collection of native and exotic plants. This tour makes a short visit to a gallery or museum, schedule permitting. You'll stop in one of Brisbane's most beautiful parks for a morning tea break, food and drinks included. Your tour wraps up at Wheel of Brisbane in South Bank Parklands. The total biking distance may vary depending on the riding skills and interests of your group.
