The City Cat ferry is highly recommended. You can buy tickets on board and they last for the next 2 hours. You can hop on and hop off wherever you want, or simply take a seat and enjoy the ride up or downstream. The crew were helpful, friendly and polite and we used the City Cat ferries on 3 occasions...

The CityCat is a great way of getting around inner city Brisbane. We caught it at the Riverside Quay and headed over to Southbank one evening and walked back over the Goodwill Bridge. Its clean, fast, relatively cheap and what's better than cruising up the river of a night time taking in the city lights, very enjoyable.

Not many cities can boast of a unique, calming transport that gets people to places like Brisbane. The CityCat Ferry offers prompt transport services that also lets you see the city's gorgeous sights. The staff are helpful and friendly, the ferries are clean, and service is efficient. A fabulous way to travel around Brisbane.
