I have been a regular patron of the free City Hopper ferry service in Brisbane for some time. It is a great idea - free, tourist-attracting - unfortunately it can be ruined at times by some of the patrons. I regularly find that it is being used by unsavoury characters (homeless, drunk) and as a female passenger, I am hesitant... More

I recently took the CityCat from Hamilton to Southbank and back. Beautiful sunny day, the ride was just magic. I'd forgotten how wonderful it is to skim along the Brisbane River looking at all the wonderful sights on the way. Fabulous!

CityCat- what an apt name of the Catamaran that cruises through the city. Also, like a cat moves in a zig zag fashion from one stoppage to the other and like a cat, does it quietly !😊 It was a good time spent. Leisure river cruise in a ferry, passing through the city. As you go further away, you see... More

CityCAT is a public transportation for locals and also it's also a ferry for river sightseeing for visitors. It is about 5 AU$. Floating on the river with some speed is such fun and also the sights besides are exciting. Big wheel, Casino, skyscrapers... You may find bicycle parking space around the CityCAT station. I found it at the station... More

As Seniors, we were entitled to half price fares on the CityCat Ferry, and what a bargain!!!!...we got on the Ferry at North Quay, paid our $3.10 each and had a lovely trip backwards and forwards across the river, heading downstream to Bretts Wharf, where we decided to stop for lunch in one of the many eateries. By the time... More

The city cat is an excellent way to see Brisbane and I take visitors on this trip to show them Brisbane. There are many stops on the route and depending where you leave from both Southbank (great area, plenty of eateries) and Brisbane CBD are good stops. The city cats give you the option of being "on deck" out in... More

Taking the city cat from Eagle Farm to the city gives you a whole different perspective on the city of Brisbane. You can get a day ticket and get on and off wherever you wish. The city, South Bank is great to walk around, powerhouse and New Farm Park. If you start in the city and go the other way... More

I Love a relaxing trip on the CityCat. Much better than driving into town. Use a GoCard to get the best fare and travel out of peak hour.
