Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 contemporary buffet meal is served (see contemporary buffet sample menu below) with dishes that feature Australia's freshest produce as well as soft drinks, juice, sparkling wine, spirits, Australian wines, and beer. 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.

Your tour ends when the paddle wheeler returns you to the dock after a magical evening on the river.

The "light show" ...all the buildings and bridges were lit up....beautiful.
, Mar 2020
The boat ride was wonderful....the view from the front deck where were seated was amazing. The food was excellant and plenty of it. The bar service at our table was slow...and that could have been because we were set up outside....after a few mentions it was fine.

The Cruise itself was lovely and a beautiful way to view the City. The food was tasty but quite dry as I think it had been sitting for too long. Was very difficult to eat. The desert was really nice though.

The cruise exceeded our ex speciation. The buffet food was much better then we expected and the crew could not do enough the help us get our meal. The music was perfect and conducive to dancing. The city at night is breathtaking how ever the trip would if it was a half hour shorter.

Fantastic Experience

We really enjoyed our dinner and cruise, we will definitely be coming back again. The entertainment was perfect, not to loud, during dinner. The staff were friendly and fun, engaging with the guests at all levels, dancing, photographing, and general chit chat. Was a fantastic experience, recommend highly. Finished our stay in Brisbane off perfectly before we flew home to NZ. Thankyou Guys and Gals.

My husband and I had a wonderful evening on this beautiful river cruise! We loved it so much we considered doing it for lunch the next day but we only had 4 days in Brisbane so decided to explore elsewhere. Thank you for this special evening. Shout out to Jean who went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our evening. Highly recommend!

The weather was perfect & the staff were very welcoming. The entertainer was a lovely man, however all the songs were a trifle dull! The atmosphere was ordinary due mainly to the very small crowd on board. We did however have a lovely night on the Brisbane River, spending some of it out on the front deck, soaking up the wonderful atmosphere. Just a magical experience. Would recommend this night out to everyone while in Brisbane.
