If you have a few hours to spend hop on a City Car Ferry and enjoy seeing Brisbane from our river. Hop off at Southbank and enjoy a coffee and a stroll or continue down to Hamilton for lunch. Such an inexpensive way to spend an afternoon.

Do the 2 hour trip (From Brett's Wharf at Hamilton)....Relaxing, enjoyable, great views and scenery. Try and get a seat at the front but make sure your hat is secure and your hair is tied back (oh, and have lots of suncream on).... Just so lovely to be on the water. Great views of some mansions on the River....

What an excellent way to get to and from the city in Brisbane. They run every 15 minutes both ways and literally drop you at the front door to some of the best restaurants and shopping that Brisbane has to offer. You can also go to Southport to experience the more artistic side of Brisbane or get a birds eye... More

These cats are a great way to get around on the river. We have used them to get from Southbank to the cruise ship near Brett's Wharf. We would not really recommend a city cat for a leisurely trip down the river. They are easy to use, a cheap mode of transport and can get you from A to B... More

This has to be one of the best ways to see our beautiful city. It is relaxed, informative if you are a visitor with the interactive screens inside, friendly staff and cost effective. Allow a couple of hours and get on and off at different stops to enjoy what Brisbane has to offer.

The CityCat is a great asset to Brisbane. It's probably not the fastest way to get around but it's very enjoyable and good value. A noticeable feature of the service is the friendly attitude of staff generally. Great representatives for Brisbane. Well done.
