No traffic hassles, clean air and great views its the best way to get around Brisbane. I love the convenience and the ability to get right into the middle of the city quickly.

We spent a whole day on the catamaran, it is really comfortable, does have toilets. Can see most of Brisbane on it and take lots of photos. You can get on and off when you like as there are lots of jetties

Took friends on a city cat ride on Saturday morning travelling from the City to the Gateway & back up to St Lucia. They loved the sights & very reasonably priced. Great way to sightsee Brisbane & the various architectures to be seen

Used this service a few times from up the river, free parking was available so only paying for the cat which to be honest on a sunny day is a lovely way to enter the city. Reasonably priced and keeps the kids happy , especially further up the river when then engines can be opened up a little more .... More

The CityCat was one of the highlights of my visit to Brisbane. I was so impressed with the wheelchair access and would highly recommend that you experience it at least once on your visit. It made visiting different parts of the city so easy.

A trip on a CityCat is an iconic experience for locals and visitors alike. Make sure you take the ferry from at least New Farm Park (as you get to experience this lovely spot as well) down to St Lucia to experience the best views of the city.

Love the citycat. So frequent, very reliable. Great for tourists and locals alike. Would however recommend that there is more onboard for tourists to pick up on places to see at each stop.

To visit Brisbane city we were advised not to use our rent car and have a issues with parking, but to take "CityCat"-river tram. Working days it has intervals 15 mins, and weekends -30mins. Price is relegated to location. e.g. We took it from Milton only one stop, but because it's different zones we paid 5.6$ pp. It was great... More

If you are just visiting Brisbane a great way to get a feel for the city is to grab a family pass and do the loop of the city . If something like the regatta hotel takes your fancy drop off for a quick lunch and pick up from where you left off. A lazy morning recommended

We were entertaining an inter-State friend and Brisbane turned on one of our beautiful days. The Citycat is a fantastic way to see Brisbane. There are many places you can hop on. Ticket purchasing is easy and staff helpful. You can travel up the river for as long as you wish and return to wherever you wish to disembark. Waiting... More
