Owner description: The Brisbane River is perfect for adventure, leisure and recreation. Go kayaking, stand up paddleboarding or take a trip on a City Cat. Celebrate the Brisbane River at a Riverfire function or just have a picnic in the riverside parkland. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a great vantage point to see the Brisbane River, or go rock climbing or abseiling with Riverlife Adventure Centre. Try Story Bridge Adventure climb, cycle, rollerblade or go for a jog. Dance with the local aboriginal tribe, Mirrabooka or visit South Bank. However you look at it you can't visit Brisbane without experiencing the River. Then cruise out to Tangalooma Island Resort for a must do experience. Enjoy!

“Super views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We have rented bikes and ridden up and down the river stopping for lunch and we have ridden the River Cat. Both offer great views of the city. A ride on the River Cat is a must.

“City Cat is a must.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

I just love cruising along the Brisbane River on the City Cat though best to avoid the commuting to and from work times whens the cats get packed to capacity. Best seen from the front or rear decks.
One off peak ticket, or a Go card, is all you need to enjoy a complete round trip journey on the City Cat - popular with cruise ship clients - and the best value sight seeing you will find in Australia.

“I could travel up and down this all day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Whether you take the city hopper or the catamaran, it doesn't matter, just sit back on the outside deck, enjoy the sunshine and the breeze, look at the houses and the views and all the bridges. Just a really nice way to spend a couple of hours.

I love the beautiful scenery and calm environment of the riverside. The water is clean and I experience a good ferry ride.
