Brisbane is the capital city of the Australian state of Queensland and is the country's third largest city. The original settlement began as a penal colony, and during World War II, served as the South West Pacific Headquarters for General Douglas MacArthur. It was only after the War that it gained its prominence as an important urban center. Your tour will give you a glimpse into this relaxed, friendly city and all it has to offer, beginning with a view of historical Brisbane.

As you travel through this beautiful city situated alongside the curving banks of the Brisbane River, you'll see sights such as the Parliament House, the Treasury Building, City Hall and the Old Customs House. Your route also takes you past the splendid riverside setting of the impressive South Bank Parklands and Cultural Centre. This is adjacent to the location where the 1988 World Expo was held. Today, the center houses the State's Art Gallery, Performing Arts Complex, a Museum and library, bearing witness to Brisbane's vibrant cultural community.

Leaving the city behind, you will next proceed to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for a visit. This is the world's first and largest koala sanctuary, and allows you the opportunity to get close to over 130 free roaming koalas in a beautiful, natural setting. While the Sanctuary is home to kangaroos, wallabies, sheep dogs and other unusual animals such as the Emu, Tasmanian Devil, Wombat, Dingo and Kookaburra, the endearing Koalas remain the main attraction. Following a brief tour, free time is provided in which you may wish to watch an entertaining sheep dog trial or relax in the serene surroundings while enjoying some tea and Damper, bushman's bread. You also won't want to miss the opportunity to have a souvenir photo taken cuddling one of the Sanctuary's adorable Koalas. This photo is optional and not included in the tour cost.

At the conclusion of your tour, your motor coach will return you back to the ship.

The order of sights visited may vary and the itinerary may be reversed. This tour does not operate with a separate guide, but rather with a driver/guide.
