The City Cat is a wonderful way to see Brisbane from the water without spending a great deal of money. You can get on the ferry from the city or anywhere you are staying along the river and stay on the City Cat enjoying the view as it goes up and down the Brisbane River. If sightseeing is not your...

Ferries are fast and frequent and are a cost effective way of seeing the city. You can pay on board either for one or two zones. We were staying on the outskirts of the city and it cost us about 7 bucks single for the journey. Boats go slowly in the city and speed quite quickly when they get outside... More

Such a great way to get from a to b..traffic free transport. If only it were the way for everything. Cheap of you have a go card but bit expensive for cash users. Should be more of these around.

We use the City Cat whenever we are in Brisbane. It is cheap and efficient. There are lots of stops up and down the river. They have a card system for registering both on and off the City Cat.

A trip on the City Cat was an essential experience for any visitor to Brisbane. Unfortunately and although the City Cats still traverse the Brisbane River from Hamilton right down to the University the sightseeing aspects have been virtually eliminated. This is because the boats have been covered with " a second skin" which actually covers the windows and so... More
