This is a great way to see a lot of the city and river in Brisbane. You have the free ferry too but it's better to use that in the evening. The views from the Citycat? WOW!!! Luxurious houses, skyscrapers, bridges… It was so amazing. I loved everything about it.

Caught a ferry from riverside to southbank and what a great way to travel. Scenery superb. No traffic and beautiful scenery.

We used the CityCat Ferry to transport us to and from the Cruise ship terminal at Portside. As we were staying in the centre of the city it was convenient to just walk our bags to the terminal. The service was on time, efficient and friendly.

Really enjoyed this trip. I went from Teneriffe to the CBD. Trip cost around $5.00 from memory. Service is regular and staff who are on board were very friendly and helpful to me about which stop to get off. You can sit inside or if a nice day, outside is lovely. My trip was around 25 minutes and really pleasant.

The CityCat Ferry is a great way to get into the city for Cruise passengers arriving into the Port of Brisbane. Friendly staff and the fare is inexpensive. CityCat vessel was clean and well maintained.

Hate going on boats terrified of water. Love the city cats find them very relaxing never scared at all.

There is nothing better to do on a beautiful, clear winter's day in Brisbane than to spend it on and around the river using the Citycats. I started with the route downstream from University of Queensland Lakes (there is a bus station very close to the ferry terminal) down to North Shore near the Gateway Bridge. On my way back... More

We travelled rom Bulimba to Southbank. The staff were very helpful, as we had not used this transport previously, and were unsure of the best place to get off. Ticket includes 2 hour travel time, and the trip was smooth and the views of the houses along the river was breathtaking. We saw groups out walking, and areas that we... More

During my last night in Brisbane, the concierge recommended a visit to the Gasworks area in Newstead. I had already done a kick run through the river using the City Hopper (which is free), but for 5AUD, the CityCat is a much better value. I rode into the sunset on a very smooth and enjoyable ride. The personnel on board... More

After living in Brisbane nearly 4 years I utilised the city cat for the first time today! I was impressed. The cats come frequently for convenience and move super fast and smooth. I had always thought it was a slower means of transport but I was wrong! Quick, convenient and come with a great city view to enjoy during your... More
