Winding right through the heart of Brisbane, all the way from Moreton Bay to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the Brisbane River is the lifeblood of Queensland’s capital city. It also offers a fantastic vantage point for sightseeing. Here are your options for river cruises in Brisbane.

Highlights
  • Admire Brisbane’s scenic riverfront including Kangaroo Point Cliffs, the South Bank parklands, and the City Botanical Gardens.
  • Get a crowd-free view of city sights such as the famous Story Bridge, the Wheel of Brisbane, and the Customs House from the water.
  • Combine a scenic cruise with another sightseeing tour or entrance to top Brisbane attractions.

Sightseeing Cruises
A Brisbane River sightseeing cruise offers a comprehensive introduction to the city, with up to three hours on the water and various tour options available. Opt for a hop-on hop-off cruise and jump off to visit Newstead House, the Battle of the Coral Sea, and the Breakfast Creek Hotel; enjoy a full-day Brisbane sightseeing tour; or combine a river cruise with a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane or a visit to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary.

Dining Cruises
Set sail onto the Brisbane River and dine with a view as you cruise around the city. Perhaps tuck into a delicious buffet lunch or dinner and enjoy live music and entertainment on board; indulge in a decadent high tea, accompanied by sparkling wine; or nibble on canapés during a romantic sunset cruise.
