  • We did the History on the Hill walking tour last Saturday. I didn't know what to expect and where we would be going. Unfortunately there wasn't too much information when booking. I love history and...  more »
  • Good displays and information on life in Brisbane. It took less than an hour to walk around and read the exhibits that were on display. Beautiful building interior.  more »
  • Hands down my favourite museum in Australia. As someone not from Brisbane, I love the exhibits dedicated to the city’s culture and history. The best part is that it’s free! It’s definitely one of my favourite places to visit whenever I’m in town, and an absolute must-see for any tourists to the area. The clock tower tours are free and definitely worth doing, but make sure you get in early (they run every 15 minutes but can only fit 8 people on each tour)
  • The place is nice. I thought that they didn't speak much about the aboriginal culture in the video of Brisbane. Just a couple of sentences mentioning them. They mainly spoke about the European migration and their influence on the city. I thought that it was a shame a bit. A man organising the tickets for the tour was really friendly and helpful. I missed the last tour and he explained kindly how it works. We have to get a ticket on the day, not the previous one. It's free by the way! Probably that's why the policy. The security guard was also friendly (some can be rude when it's closing time...). Will go again tomorrow ☺
