The Wheel of Brisbane is a 60-metre (197 ft) tall transportable Ferris wheel installation erected as part of the 20th anniversary of World Expo 88 and the 150th anniversary of the State of Queensland 1859–2009 celebrations.

It is located at the northern entrance to South Bank Parklands, the transformed World Expo ’88 site by the Brisbane River. The ride opened in August 2008.Originally operated by World Tourist Attractions,it was initially scheduled to be an attraction of South Bank from 2008 to 2010 but has now been extended to remain until 2013.

Each of the 42 air-conditioned capsules can seat up to six adults and two children providing a total passenger capacity of 336. The ride lasts for approximately 12 minutes and provides 360° views across the city.

Retired many years from nursing. I live in beautiful Buderim, Queensland.
I use a Nikon D5000.
I like to capture natural settings, anything else that catches my attention.
I also delve into digital art and mixed media – all self taught.
