The Best of Brisbane Bicycle Tour

Take a 2 or 3.5-hour guided bicycle tour from South Bank Parklands, and ride to historic Kangaroo Point. Continue over the iconic Story Bridge to the charming suburb of New Farm. Ride down tree-lined streets and into New Farm Park, a lovely site with riverside picnic spots, cycling paths and playgrounds. Stop here for a picnic tea break, and to enjoy the river view. After the break you’ll head to the inner suburb of Teneriffe to see the many heritage sites that are being revitalized. Gradually you’ll wind your way back along the waterfront, where some of Brisbane's finest riverfront restaurants are located.  Pedal through the City Botanic Gardens, and see the outdoor sculptures and an impressive collection of native and exotic plants. The tour ends back at the starting point in South Bank Parklands. The total biking distance may vary depending on the riding skills and interests of your group.

Brisbane: City Winery Wine Blending Workshop

2. Brisbane: City Winery Wine Blending Workshop

Visit the first winery to launch in Brisbane since 1860 and work with the winemaker or group sommelier to blend up your own bottle of wine. Discover the venue's signature Gerler wines that are named after the city’s last winemaker and viticulturist, Carl Gerler, and largely made onsite by acclaimed winemaker, Dave Cush. To get there, take a mere 4-minute drive from Brisbane CBD. Once at the venue, find a fully functioning micro-winery, cellar door, and restaurant with private dining for groups up to 20 people. Then, begin your fun and informative session that combines wine tasting with winemaking principles. Learn about the various elements that go into blending a bottle of wine — such as whole bunch, pressings, and half-whole bunch — and the art of getting the mix right. Finally, bottle and seal your own unique blend, label it, and have it signed by the winemaker.
