Brisbane Weekend Lunch Cruise
Two and a half hour Brisbane river cruise with seasonal buffet. Includes live entertainment
Book a relaxing paddleboat cruise on the Brisbane River for a midday break from activities in the city. Leave the bustling streets behind and find a seat on the boat's deck to see the landmarks, and then dig in to a buffet lunch of hot and cold offerings accompanied by Australian produce. This lunch cruise is a great way to maximize your time sightseeing in Brisbane.
What to Expect

Make your way to Eagle Street Pier to meet your departing paddleboat. Snap a few photos of the traditional wooden boat, constructed from Queensland timber, before stepping onboard.

Once you settle in to a comfortable seat, listen to informative commentary from your crew on Brisbane landmarks and the development of Brisbane's waterfront. Traveling on a boat allows for unobstructed views of some of the city's top highlights.

Sidle up to the buffet to partake of the hot and cold offerings (see Itinerary for a sample menu), accompanied by native Australian produce and desserts. Alcoholic drinks are available for purchase at the bar.

Weekend lunch cruises include live entertainment.

Head back to shore at the end of your cruise, ready for the rest of your day in Brisbane.

The closest car park is Wilsons carpark at 45 Eagle Street. There are quite a number of carparks close by that offer special rates as well.
