The red double-decker Brisbane Explorer bus will no longer be spotted making its way through the streets of Brisbane as the service has made the tough decision to stop operation. The two buses launched in November 2014 and for more than two years traveled a 19-stop route through a Brisbane and Mount Coot-tha tour.Apr 21, 2017

Are you in Brisbane just for the day before or after a cruise?. Or will u be staying a bit longer. In Oct my mum and I spent 2 days in Brisbane before our cruise. We stayed at the Sebel Brisbane corner of albert and charlotte st. This was a great central location to shops and food.  From here we were easily able to walk to botanical gardens, very beautiful, Southbank city beach, interesting. The city is very walkable. So that might be an option if your staying
