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!

Great for commuting on City Cat ( Huge catamaran ferry) or for using it for sightseeing up and down the Brisbane River

Pick a sunny day & take the City Cat from Bulimba up to UQ & back...such a beautiful river & city. Stop off at the Regatta Hotel at Toowong for a leisurely lunch...or stop off at Southbank Parklands for a wander around

Brillant we paid $11.20 for 2 of us to do the 2 hour trip up and back the Brisbane River on the Government Ferry. It was excellent value and view. It was our first trip to Brisbane and we got a great introduction.

Cruise the river on a city cat or other boat and just go up and down. There is so much to see especially on a nice day.

There are definitely better things to do in Brisbane then see this river. But its good for public transport (that is generally quite expensive).
