Our CityCat ferries are a great way to show off the city to visitors as well as a wonderful way to get around and enjoy the river and the city. There's a new terminal about to open at the southern end of the University of Queensland and this will extend the reach of the ferries even further. I've been on... More

If I had a choice, I would always take a ferry into the city, such a shame it's not walking distance from the airport.

Where else can you see the river in such comfort for such a cheap price. A couple of hours will do the full circuit from St Lucia to Hamilton taking in all the sights of the Brisbane River

Grab a Cat and cruise up and down the Brisbane River. This is a very affordable and relaxing way to see the foreshore of the Brisbane River. The Cats travel quite a few kilometers and you are able to purchase a ticket to enable you to cruise from one end of the city to the other and alight wherever you... More

Brisbane is a great place to explore. South Bank is a good starting point - the art gallery, museum and theatres are all worth time.

As a jump on and off shuttle its very efficient,but also offers a way to cruise the whole length of the city waterfront for just a few dollars. If you can, get a go card, city cat accepts these. Brilliant professional modern and... More
