Description

All on board a traditional paddle wheeler to cruise down the Brisbane River to see many of the city's waterfront beauties. Relax on the deck of the boat as you cruise through town, and at midday get your appetite ready for a delicious buffet-style lunch menu.

Meet at the dock and climb onto the Kookaburra Queen paddle wheeler, a type of boat that has cruised down the Brisbane River since 1986. The eclectic wooden boat is famous for its laid-back style and design promoting a refined, leisurely time on the water.

As you cruise down the Brisbane River, spot the beautiful Botanic Gardens on the waterfront, including a forest of mangroves. See the stark Kangaroo Point Cliffs, the massive steel Story Bridge, and the destroyer ships parked at the Maritime Museum, and then sit down for a delicious lunch before cruising back to port.

The cruise was thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were friendly and attentive, the MC has a great sense of humour and is also an accomplished singer. The buffet was delicious and the pavlova was awesome! The trip is great value for money and is highly recommended. Thank you to the Kookaburra Queen crew!
