What You Can Expect

Brisbane River Lunchtime Cruise

Brisbane River Lunchtime Cruise

Marvel at the fine craftsmanship of the wooden paddlewheeler as you walk on board for your lunchtime cruise. The friendly staff welcome you to your table and review the cruise schedule. Once you have been oriented to the boat, stroll the deck for unobstructed views of the Brisbane River waterfront. Informative commentary shared by the crew details the development of Brisbane and the sights that you pass.

Your buffet lunch is served as your boat glides along the river. Choose the dishes you like from an extensive selection of delicious hot and cold offerings, with a menu that features fresh Australian seafood and produce, accompanied by gourmet breads, rice, pasta, and tempting desserts. Drinks are available for purchase at the full bar.

After your meal, enjoy live music from a 3-piece jazz band (if you choose the Sunday cruise). Sway along with the lively beat of the music as you take in the sights of Brisbane from your vantage point on the river. The Saturday cruise includes an entertaining chat and a tune performed by the boat's resident historian.

The design of the famous paddle boats on the Mississippi River shaped the design of this vessel. Carefully crafted from Queensland timber, including ironbark, spotted gum and white beech, Brisbane River paddlewheelers have become an icon of the Brisbane River, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

After a 2-hour cruise, your tour ends when the paddlewheeler returns you to the dock.
