I found this an excellent way to see some of the points of interest along the river plus it helped me get my bearings on where places are located. The on board staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. I can't recommend it enough.

This is the easiest way to get around central Brisbane and it also runs to c10 min walk from the cruise terminal. Very frequent boats & very comfortable too

Had a superb day on the CityCat & what a fantastic way to see a wonderful city. As a wheelchair user the facilities (at the labelled stations) & on board are fantastic - cannot recommend highly enough. The crew were very friendly on the whole & polite. A very comfortable, pleasant & thoroughly enjoyable trip.

This is our regular commute and boy do we miss it when it's out of action. (Which is rare) The staff are awesome and helpful and love playing with our toddler as he sits in his pram and looks out the window. The frequency is awesome during peak periods and feels much safer than the bus.

The CityCat is one of the few mechanisms of public transport in Brisbane which is actually reliable. It's pretty relaxing and gives you a great tour of the city. My only gripe was that it was not a giant water loving feline which passengers rode around on. Ah well, I can't have everything.. :(

The taxis are great, very smooth and staff are very helpful. There is a commentary inside Cat. We used our Go Cards on this and got cheaper fares by using ferry off peak. We travelled on this ferry for three hours in total. Brilliant especially because we travelled the whole route and because we planned it well, it did not... More

Use the ferry a lot to travel to and from uni. Staff are friendly, views from the boat are beautiful and only have to wait a maximum of five minutes until the boat comes. Great service!

Upon arriving in Brisbane 3 months ago.. I quickly found that the CityCat was a great way to get around town. I can hop on at Brett's Wharf in Hamilton and be down at South Bank in about 30 mins. I know that the buses are faster but the CItyCat's are usually less crowded and offer a more relaxed mode... More
