Brisbane South Bank Parklands
Brisbane River, Queensland

The Wheel of Brisbane is a 60-metre (197 ft) tall transportable Ferris wheel installation erected as part of the 20th anniversary of World Expo 88 and the 150th anniversary of the State of Queensland 1859–2009 celebrations.

It is located at the northern entrance to South Bank Parklands, the transformed World Expo '88 site by the Brisbane River. The ride opened in August 2008. Originally operated by World Tourist Attractions, it was initially scheduled to be an attraction of South Bank from 2008 to 2010 but has now been extended to remain until 2013.

Each of the 42 air-conditioned capsules can seat up to six adults and two children providing a total passenger capacity of 336. The ride lasts for approximately 12 minutes and provides 360° views across the city.

"Spectacular Brisbane Views

Our giant observation wheel offers a spectacular 360 degree panoramic view of Brisbane City from the heart of Brisbane’s cultural, lifestyle and entertainment precinct, the Parklands at South Bank . Unrivaled for its view, a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane is an uplifting experience that will take you almost 60m above the ground in the safety and comfort of a fully enclosed air conditioned capsule."
