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!

It was such a scenic beauty and very romantic walking along the river and walking past all the shops, coffee places and watching the birds, etc. Very nice indeed.

The River has so much to offer, from taking a stroll to stopping for Breakfast at the many resturants and cafes. The free ferries will drop you off at any stop, you could spend all day.

We took a trip on the City Cat to both ends of it's journey along the river. This took over 2 hours and gave us a good perspective of the whole city.

There are three different types of ferry on the river doing different things and stopping at different points, including one which is free. The City Cat goes further in both directions than any of the others. The cost is very reasonable considering how long you are cruising for. There are outside seating areas to the front and back which makes for a lovely trip on a sunny day.

We also found all the staff on the ferry amazingly friendly and helpful.
