Join the Brisbane City Sights Walking Tour!; 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, 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jonathon provided a thorough history of Brisbane, from the founding of Australia to current times. He guided me to the major sights and oriented me within the central area of the city. He also answered numerous questions that helped place Brisbane within the region it occupies. An excellent investment of my time and money.
