Although Brisbane is a city still relatively young, is it rich in history. Set on the Brisbane River, within close proximity to the coast and beaches, and with a great all year climate, it’s no secret why thousands of Australians are moving to Brisbane each month. Brisbane Urban Adventures invites you to discover this exuberant city and its surrounds, meet the locals, unravel its history, and enjoy some local delicacies, all on unique Brisbane tours led by our friendly and professional local guides.

Brisbane has become increasingly recognised for its live music and nightlife, with places like Fortitude Valley offering a vibrant scene now a must visit for any newcomers to Brisbane. If good food is your fetish, then Brisbane offers up a diverse cuisine and dining experience, reflecting the heavy influence that multiculturalism has played on Brisbane.

Our specially designed Brisbane tours allow you to discover the city in a personal and unique way. So whether you can see yourself cycling along the river, relaxing at our urban beaches or sub-tropical gardens, learning about the chequered history of this vivacious city, heading to Moreton Bay for some fish and chips, or learning about Aboriginal history whilst taking in the stunning views from Mount Coot-tha, there are many Brisbane Urban Adventures waiting for you!
