It is a ferry

Different way of getting around a city, but it is a ferry at the end of the day. Not really a tourist attraction, but makes getting around the city much easier.

This is a great way to travel around Brisbane. We got Go Cards from a kiosk near Eagle Street Wharf Pier ($10 deposit and 5 years validity) and used them extensively. There are plenty of cats, you don't have to wait long at the wharf for the next one. Whether you want to do the whole run on the CityCat,... More

Whenever I have visitors I always take them in a City Cat one way or another. It's a great - and cheap - way to show them what Brisbane is about. On a lovely sunny day like the beautiful weekend we just had, it is just awesome. The services are frequent and you don't have to hang around too long... More

Cheap and comforable way to get around if you aren't comfortable driving in inner city or new city. Good for late at night

Fantastic way to see the sights. Never too busy if you avoid the peak commuting times. Great way to access sites like the River Walk, Botanical Gardens, Cultural Centre and Southbank parks. Highly recommended.

Spent the morning with our granddaughter riding the river. The boats were on time and there was plenty on the river so it was not a long wait between trips. The staff were friendly and helpful and the price was very good. Great way to kill time and awesome means of transport

This is best and easiest way to see Bribane day or night. The price is very reasonable, comfortable and quiet ride.

Great way to get around but get a Go Card for trains, buses, and ferries. Cost $10 but can cash them in at end of trip and get back unused travel plus the $10

Great low cost way of seeing Brisbane from the river. Stopping at great places for lunch or dinner. Ride up front to get some water on your face.
