Brisbane River Cruises

Skipping a river cruise in Brisbane is like visiting New York and missing out on the Statue of Liberty – what a shame! A Brisbane River cruise is your ultimate gateway to seeing some of the city’s most legendary attractions from a whole new perspective. Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Story Bridge, South Bank, and the city centre are few of the famous landmarks usually seen from a river cruise.
When it comes to our selection of Brisbane River cruises, you can choose a serene morning cruise, a full day tour, a scenic cruise to a nearby island or a sightseeing cruise complete with a delightful lunch. You can also find premium sailing tours that give you an opportunity to swim off the boat, snorkel in world-famous sites and even encounter regional marine life.
Depending on the budget, time constraints or other factors like departure points, you can easily find a tour that fits your itinerary. There is even a river cruise that combines sightseeing and a visit to the legendary Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary – how cool is that? 
Board a cruise to enjoy the best riverfront sights and appreciate the wonders of Brisbane like never before. Book a Brisbane river cruise today!
