I always use this service - great way to see the city and discover a few of the inner city suburbs. Staff are great and always happy to give advice and almost act as tour guides. Not what I would call a fast mode of transport, so don't indulge if you are short on time.

Spent the weekend in Brisbane. Love the City Cats. Clean, great staff and punctual. This is the ideal way to 'view' this beautiful city, especially on such beautiful days.

These river cats do a beaut job in moving people through the city areas along the Brisbane River. They constantly move quietly between city locations and beyond. Wow this a great service, thank you.

The City Cat can be boarded at a number of places in and around the city. travellers can jump on and off whenever they like. compared to eg London's or Paris's hop on hop off buses, it is a far more enjoyable experience.

The problem with this service is this. We were wanting to get over to the South Bank on a Saturday. Couldn't find anyone to guide us which boat to get so we got on the first one that came along. We then asked the ticket guy on board who told us we had the wrong boat.....too late, we were already... More

In our little village there is 1 stop sign and a handful of Give Way Signs. Wanting to see Brisbane we choose to use the City Cat for our sight seeing instead of trying to find our way around this busy city by car. Totally the right choice. Took a bit to find out where to walk to once parked... More

The CityCat is a quick and easy way to either get from one side of the river to the other or to travel up/down the river. It is quick and efficient, although depending on trips and frequency of use can be expensive. It is also a 'unique' feature of Brisbane and as such qualifies as a tourist attraction too.

Always on time, cheapest way and most interesting way to get around Brisbane. Wish it ran later into the night though for those big nights out! And some stops need better parking availability e.g. Bulimba.

Affordable transport option. Nothing to dislike infact we took it at night and views of skyline breathtaking. We also used city cycles one way and ferried back to where we wanted to go.

I loved it. It led me to all of Brisbane by the river path. The cost was minimal and the view along the river side was good. Couple of stops along the river allowed me to take steady shots of those areas that I wanted to.
