The cruise was enjoyable but I'd recommend that you only do it one way ($27.50) so that you have more time at the Koala Sanctuary and be able to catch the platypus and Tasmanian devil shows that happen after the return cruise departs. You can easily catch the bus (no. 430 and 445, fare is $4.66 with Go Card) back... More

While on a short holiday to Brisbane, we thought we would check out the Koala park. Jumping aboard the Mirimar 2 we discovered that the captain and his brother previously lived in our home town. Thank you to all the crew on board for making our adventure awesome. Highly recommend everyone take this trip up the river to gain some... More

We made a decision almost on the spot to take this curise. So happy we did. The staff on the cruise were great & we had a great time at the Sanctuary. The cruise on the river was informative. The food also very nice.

Fantastic trip to and from Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary on MV MIRIMAR. My "borrowed" grand daughter said it was best day of her life. Went with her mother and another young lady from overseas. Helpful, ultra friendly staff - nothing was too difficult for them, including lovely young man who walked with me to count steps up to Sanctuary (after... More

We found the river cruise to be excellent, the commentary was informative and the views of the city were spectacular. We even got to steer the boat! The koala sanctuary is really good and 2 hrs is a good amount of time to get round. The food on board was really tasty and enjoyed whilst watching the world go by... More

A convenient and perfect way to see the river and get to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. With a convenient pick up in South Bank, and a really friendly crew this was a treat. The ride there was informative and interesting. The ride back they turned on some music and just let us drink a beer and enjoy the view.... More

I enjoyed the river cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, but the arrival of 11.am and departure at 1.45pm, I did not get to enjoy all the shows at the sanctuary. I felt it was more about the river which I did find interesting and fascinating. The sights were gorgeous with homes and buildings of renown history. There was... More

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
