No doubt Brisbanites used to their lovely river with its great views see the CityCat as simply an efficient, cheap form of public transport.

How to be an attraction without being an attraction. No expensive boat tour needed in Brisbane, this quick and well organised service brings you everywhere with the plus of an outstanding viewpoint on Brisbane! Very recommended

Smooth and quiet with great views across to the city skyline from nearly every spot on the river. An excellent way to get around, either as a tourist or resident.

Very enjoyable cruise down the Brisbane River . Lovely modern catamaran with well spaced deck area to enjoy the breeze and sunshine . Pleasant atmosphere with smiles galore from all onboard . Best way to chill during a day out during the warm summer in Brisbane .

This is a excellent trip along the Brisbane river stopping at various places . Very cheap way to see various places. Stops are within walking distance to various places. We also caught the red bus around town stopping at places like palimony hpuse, post office square, city hall, Anzac Square and customs house and many more.

The CityCat is a good cheap way to get around the city and be a lot of fun. I would recommend anyone visiting the city to take the ferry and get on and off at various stops you will have a great day or two.

The ferry is a great way to get around Brisbane. Just hop a ferry to get to your next destination. The very best way to travel in the heat of the summer. Added bonus - you can take your bike with you!
