Brisbane Trike Tours offers an exciting, fun and unique way of seeing the real Brisbane as only locals know it. The choices are yours: a quick spin around town showing off the beautiful heritage buildings, or a longer tour to the World Heritage rainforests to the South, the spectacular Scenic Rim mountains to the West or the breathtaking mountain roads with ocean views to the North. Tours even extend to iconic Byron Bay along the tree-lined winding roads of the Northern New South Wales hinterland.
The riders are motorcyclists with decades of experience, a clean driving record, and are accredited, police checked and carry all necessary insurances. Helmets, jackets and gloves are supplied. Packaged tours are on offer, or can be designed just for you. Surprise rides for special occasions are a speciality as are events such as fundraising, photo opportunities, weddings, formals and corporate events.
The vehicle is a state of the art, fully imported Boom Mustang Thunderbird trike, kept in immaculate condition and regularly serviced and safety-checked for your comfort and safety. Riding on 'The Bling Queen' (as the Boom Trike is called) is a never to be forgotten experience you will cherish for many years to come.
See a part of living in Brisbane few tourists see. This is a leisurely longer tour through Brisbane's bayside suburbs visiting Redland Bay, Victoria Point, Cleveland Point and cruising along the water's edge through the bayside suburbs of Wynnum and Manly with time to stop for good old fashioned fish and chips by the bay if you wish. Brisbane's Moreton Bay is home to many islands and islets and the drive encompasses early bayside suburban dwellings, heritage sites along our foreshores, protected mangrove growth areas and a visit to the famous Sirromet Winery for some tastings (for you, not your rider!)
Choice of either a slow-paced progression along the Old Pacific Highway which runs parallel to the new motorway, or the faster-paced ride along the Pacific Motorway itself before turning towards the mountains at Oxenford to wind your way up to lovely cool Tamborine Mountain, taking in the beautiful fresh air and views of waterfalls, ferns and towering gum-trees, listen to the tinkling sound of the Tamborine Mountain bellbirds. Arrive in style at Tamborine Mountain's boutique and gallery walk precinct full of interesting art, books, jewellery, antiques and cafes. Other places of interest in the area include wineries, boutique brewery, cheese factory, gardens, Rainforest Skywalk, O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, Thunderbird Park.
Take a spin and be seen riding in style around Brisbane's Central Business District's major streets. See heritage buildings such as Customs House, Parliament House, Tower Mill and the earliest existing building from Brisbane's convict past, the Commissariat Store.
Touring on the trike provides a wonderful open air perspective to view the buildings and hear the sounds of the city (lots of people will be waving to you too!). Then its through the Ivory Street tunnel and over Brisbane's iconic Story Bridge to see Brisbane from the vantage point of the Kangaroo Point cliffs across the river.
Beautiful tour taking in mountains and the sea - Gold Coast hinterland and the Old Pacific Highway through the Burringbar Ranges before arriving at world-renowned Byron Bay, visiting the famous lighthouse at the easternmost point of the Australian mainland. Plenty of time for shopping and lunch and maybe even a swim!
This tour takes in Brisbane Central Business District's major streets featuring heritage buildings such as Customs House, Parliament House, Tower Mill and the old Commissariat Store. See the building where Douglas Macarthur had his office in World War Two and the nearby General Post Office, formerly the site of the old Female Factory (prison) during Brisbane's convict days.
You'll then leave the Central Business District and travel up the steep climb to Spring Hill and nearby Petrie Terrace and Paddington to see some of the earlier homes, before touring through the beautiful gardens of the Roma Street Parklands on the site of the old railway yards. The tour continues to South Brisbane to view the old dry dock at the Maritime Museum before taking in the view of Brisbane from the Kangaroo Point cliffs and returning to the Central Business District via the Story Bridge.
This tour encompasses much of the 'City Sights By Day' and 'Heritage Brisbane' tours, but then continues out of the Central Business District along Coronation Drive beside the Brisbane River to Mt Coot-tha lookout, taking time out for viewing and taking photos, and returning through some of Brisbane's quintessential inner city suburbs featuring super steep streets and iconic Queenslander homes on stilts clinging precariously to equally steep blocks of land where just driving to and from home is akin to a roller-coaster ride! Now from the perspective of a trike, that's something to write home about.
