I like the cruise along the river from the City towards to the Koala Sanctuary. If you have a day to spend in Brisbane, I'll recommend the river cruise + visit the Koala sanctuary. Along the way, there were many nice looking houses and interesting buildings complemented by very informative pre - recorded narration. The natural scenary running between several... More

Having a day spare on my own in Brisbane I decided to get the day cruise to love pine koala sanctuary. The hour boat ride there was enjoyable even as a solo traveler with commentary about Brisbane's history and the areas/buildings that the boat passes. The crew on board were incredibly friendly and helpful on both journeys, and even allowed... More

We were excited to take this cruise to see those cute koalas! The cruise took about an hour and a half to get to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. There was an entertaining and informative taped audio presentation on the history of Brisbane and the sights along the way. The seating was plastic lawn chairs. There were blankets in a... More

Fabulous day on the water and at Lone Pine Sanctuary. There is nothing quite as adorable as having your picture taken with a Koala or feeding a joey in her mother's pouch. Just the right amount of time on the boat and with the animals. A must when visiting Brisbane.

The Miramar Day Cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is enjoyable, relaxing, and informative. The river cruise is interesting and there was good narrative during the cruise to the the sanctuary. The captain and staff were friendly and helpful and provided additional information to the narrative. The Lone Pine Sanctuary provided a great way to see the "roos" and koalas... More

Wonderful cruise down the river. My wife wanted to go and I did not, BUT, after boarding the boat and seeing Brisbane from the boat (with commentary), I enjoyed it very much. The animal sanctuary was a great outing.

I have read many of the reviews accredited to the Mirimar II and it would be very hard to add anything more then what has been said about this fantastic day on the Brisbane River and our visit to the Lone Pine Sanctuary. I am doing this review to help other passengers like ourselves who arrived in Brisbane by Cruise... More

The Mirimar Koala Cruise was the highlight of our trip to Brisbane and I could not recommend it more highly. The staff on the boat were all incredibly friendly. The commentary as we made our way from the CBD to the Koala sanctuary was witty and relevant - it kept you listening because you didn't know what funny quip was... More

The crew were amazing and that started from boarding to when we left the cruise on our return to Brisbane. The added bonus was just turn up and get your ticket on board without having to waste time booking in advance. The cruise to Lone Pine and it is certainly the way to do it, with a nice relaxing cruise... More
