These cats purely purr down the Brisbane River. The ride is smooth and so comfortable. The staff are always friendly helpful and welcoming. Such a convenient way to travel to work or just for a coffee with friends.

You will enjoy touring the area of Brisbane by the CityCat Ferry. We made several stops along the way and walked to different areas to see the tourist spots. Enjoyed the Kangaroo section of Brisbane very much.

Love using the city cat in Brisbane - lovely to be on the river away from traffic - I have found staff on the cats to be very helpful and service oriented. Great way to get around in a comfortable clean and quick way

Recently used the service consistently over three days and each time we had a minimum wait time and the staff were very informative and friendly. So many ferries, so many stops - overall a fantastic service.

The Koala and River cruise is not the same as the city cat, no. City cat only goes upriver as far as St Lucia, whereas the Koala and River cruise takes you up to Lone Pine at Fig Tree Pocket, I believe.
