Owner description: An iconic landmark on the South Bank skyline, the Channel Seven Wheel of Brisbane is a breathtaking way to take in a 360-degree panoramic view of spectacular Brisbane city. Rising 60 metres above the ground in the safety and comfort of a fully enclosed, air-conditioned gondola that seats up to 8 people and is perfect for everyone. Visitors can experience the sights by day, the lights by night or enjoy a sky high picnic on board with a wine or soft drink to add to your experience. Open 10am to 10pm, Sunday to Thursday, and 10am to 11pm, Friday and Saturday, there are no reservations required so explore the Brisbane metropolis from one of the best vantage points in the city.

The Wheel is situated in the South Bank Parklands leisure area and worth a trip. There seems to be ways to get discounted tickets, for example, given out when booking a River City cruise.

Wonderful views when we travelled at night. There is a pathway that leads to a market, live music and great meals. The staff were very friendly and happy. It was priced well at $17.50 per adult which is way cheaper than the Melbourne Star.

Went on this with two friends. Was quite expensive but we had just arrived in Brisbane and we thought it would be a nice way to see all around us. To be honest you don't see much. When we did it the glass on our car was quite dirty so it wasn't like we could even take good pictures. It wasn't bad but wasn't particularly good either. I've been on better wheel tours in different cities.

Very expensive for what you get, not worth the money. Five laps around it's done. Quick way to empty the wallet and get a good view of the dirty Brisbane river.

Loved the wheel we had our own cabin and the views were spectacular looking towards the cliffs, into the city and north along the quay. Would recommend taking any visitors to Brisbane on the wheel
