See Brisbane's city landmarks and alternative history

The Brisbane City Sights Walking Tour is a comprehensive and interesting overview of all Brisbane's city landmarks, historical places of interest, hidden laneways and secret and alternative stories.

Local "Brisbanite" Jonny will entertain and inform you about "Australia's coolest and most underrated city" (Lonely Planet) covering Brisbane's brutal, rebellious and often funny history. From its origins as a cruel, torturous penal colony through to its recent corrupt politics, Brisbane's history is as underrated as its weather is glorious.

Along the way learn about Australian-Aboriginal relations, check out the edgy hidden street art, see all the heritage buildings and architecture, discover Brisbane's rich literary and musical icons, the intriguing communist and alternative landmarks, World War 2 heritage, churches, haunted sites as well as all the famous inner-city landmarks.

We guarantee you'll leave the tour with a new found appreciation of "Brisvegas":)

A Recent Review of this tour

We were on a cruise ship that made last minute change so we docked in Brisbane. Luck for us we were able to secure Jonathan for a walking tour and it was great. We covered the entire downtown area, crossed over two bridges, saw the war memorial, went up the clocktower and ended the day by stopping at a pub. It was amazing all we learned about the significance of Brisbane in Australian history. Brisbane is also a very clean town and easy to walk around.
