A Great way to take a water front tour around Brisbane

We purchased a two zone ticket which allowed us to ride the ferry for two plus hours enjoying the sites.

Quick and easy access to the city all along the Brisbane river. It's enjoyable too. I use them all the time, whenever possible. Need to get a Go card

We were staying in Southbank and decided to catch up with my brother in law and his family (2 girls, 1 boy 2-10). He thought we should take the Cat over to the New Farm Park. The Cat was clean, safe, fast, on time, I really have nothing critical to say about it of its service. The staff were friendly,... More

I often have friends and family staying in Brisbane for a few days. This is a great way to see the city. My favourite excursion is to drop my visitors at the ferry terminal opposite the Coronation Hotel and let them cruise down river, past GoMA , Southbank and the Story Bridge. Finally getting off at the Brunswick Street terminal.I... More

Simply the best (and most comfortable) way for an overview of beautiful Brisbane, both sides of the River. For only a few dollars jump on/off one of the bright speedy Brisbane-themed Cats, with stops at all the best attractions. Ride it to UQ St Lucia terminus to admire the stunning architecture and superb river setting. Southbank Parklands and QUT Gardens... More

Only in the city 2 days due to traveling, hubby & I went on the Brisbane Council River boat to the manmade beach at South bank. The boat was quite cheap, very comfortable & the staff very helpful. As you can imagine the 'beach' gets very busy with families, but is open till quite late & is free. There are... More

Riding the City Cats is a great way of viewing Brisbane. Starting at either ends you get the feel of our meandering river. The beautiful parks & stops along the way, New Farm Park famous for its rosé beds & cafe under the fig trees. Newstead park on the bend at the Breakfast Creek (brekkie creek, as the locals call...

I haven't on it for quite sometime I should try again, back then it was nice ride, especially our son enjoy riding in front. He can barely see where he's... More
