#13. Clock Tower at Brisbane City Hall
Take a free 15-minute tour up the iconic Clock Tower at City Hall, which for more than 30 years was the tallest structure in the city. Four giant bells, weighing over 3 tonnes, still chime every 15 minutes, and a 4.3 tonne bell strikes on the hour mark.
The tower itself is 92m high, with an observation deck at 73m for amazing views over the city. Be prepared – the tour takes you up in a beautifully restored hand-operated lift.
#14. Hop on a CityCat

#15. Visit the BRISBANE Sign
The infamous Brisbane sign was originally made from plywood by local Men’s Shed groups for the G20 Leaders’ Summit in 2014, and was meant to be a temporary installation – however, it became so popular that it was recreated and is a now a permanent South Bank fixture.
The sign is the perfect backdrop for fun photos, silly selfies and some creative family snaps – go ahead and get snap happy!
