We went out to dinner in the city so decided to catch the CityCat ferry back to Tenneriffe and then a short walk. It was a beautiful night and was great to just be on the ferry and see the city lights. It was such a smooth ride also. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Loved it. Must do it... More

Great trip down the river with the family, can sit inside in air conditioned comfort or outside (bring a hat). Timetable ensures you are never stuck somewhere, great way to see the river city!

The CityCats run approximately every 15 mins, and cost us $4.60 each for 2 hours, which you can pay when you first board. There is seating under cover or out on deck. You can hop on and hop off at whatever stop you like - the Regatta Hotel is a nice stop for a drink and a meal.

What a wonderful way for tourists to see our beautiful city. Take the ride to discover the Brisbane river experience. Relax while you wind your way around the city. Wonderful service and ample stops to get on and off.

Quick and easy transport to and from the city. Quarter hour schedules through most of the day. Some free parking available for CityCat commuters.

Took the cat from the station near the cruise ship terminal. Seniors who don't have a concession card pay the full fare. Concession card only available to Australians. Cat staff very helpful. Paid fare on-board. Fare is good for 2 hours for use on transit. We rode towards downtown Brisbane all the way to the end at St. Lucia. We... More

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...
