What You Can Expect

Brisbane River Dinner Cruise

Brisbane River Dinner Cruise

Make your own way to Eagle Street Pier to board finely crafted tiered paddlewheel boat. Watch the waterfront light up for the night and stroll around the deck, then take your seat as the boat sets off on the Brisbane River.

The legendary paddle boats of the Mississippi River inspired the design of this vessel, which has been carefully crafted from Queensland timber and has become an iconic part of the river scenery.

Your 3-course meal is served (see à la carte sample menu below) with dishes that feature Australia's freshest produce and seafood. After dinner, gaze over Brisbane with unobstructed views from the deck or dining room. Live entertainers perform classic music and new favorites that liven up the dance floor.

The paddle boats of the Mississippi River inspired the design of this vessel, which has been carefully crafted from Queensland timber, including ironbark, spotted gum and white beech.

After a 3-hour cruise, your tour ends when the paddlewheeler returns you to the dock after a magical evening on the river.

    The experience was great. Very cost effective, which was a pleasant surprise but the evening was slightly marred by the discovery of a live cockroach wandering over our entree. Other than that though the in house music and food was terrific.
