Led by a knowledgeable guide, our tours will allow you to discover UQ's historic Great Court, state of the art teaching facilities and student recreational areas.

Shuttle Cart Tours have been particularly tailored for prospective students interested in studying at UQ.

Throughout the tour all guests are encouraged to ask their knowledgeable guides any questions they may have about studying at UQ.

Nestled alongside the Brisbane River – the St Lucia Campus has been a haven for knowledge seekers since its inception in 1939. With plenty of leafy boulevards, picturesque picnic spots and bustling cafes – there are so many unique discoveries awaiting you!

Why not make a day of it? Be sure to ask your guide for recommendations on how to extend your visit.
