9 tours on foot in Brisbane
Orientate yourself with Brisbane’s footpaths on one of the city’s many walking tours. Not all are just walk and talks, some crawl from craft brewery to craft bar, others uncover Brisbane’s dark past.
Join Bean Brewding on a caffeinated quest for the best local coffee. The three coffee lovers behind the tours have designed walking, cycling and CityCat journeys that make the most of Brisbane’s best roasts. Each stop on the tours teaches you something new – from cupping to chocolate pairing.
Interested in discovering small bars in Fortitude Valley? Or hunting out the best laneway cafes? Perhaps art and design tickles your fancy? Or maybe you just want to kick back with sundowners in the city? You’re in luck, Walk Brisbane hosts all these tours and more seven days a week.
Love food? Burn calories in between consuming them with one of Foodi’s walking tours. Join a chocolate, craft beer, dessert, high tea or Asian street food tour, or explore the suburbs of Newstead or West End on one of its three-hour tours.
Fort Lytton at Night
Be transported back in time and experience the historic Fort Lytton through the eyes of decorated WWI hero Raymond Augustus Stanley. More theatrical experience than walk, it uses light, sound and actors bring the colonial fortifications to life.
Go beyond merely learning about the streets you’re walking down and get a true "insider" experience by visiting local haunts. Insider offers three tours weekly – Convicts & Crime (Tuesdays); Brews, ANZAC & Heritage (Thursday and Saturday); and Cocktails, Chocolate and Fashion (Saturday and Sunday).
You might have seen their friendly faces and bright red shirts – the Brisbane Greeters take locals and visitors on free walking orientations of the city. The three-hour tours take in a wide range of topics and areas – it’s your choice.
