Great cruise. $29 per adult for 90 minutes. Very informative and great bar prices. $22 for a bottle of wine and $5 for a can of beer. It was so relaxing and well done. The food was amazing and well presented. This should be on your must do list.
I have lived in Brisbane for many moons, so it was nice to take some time out and soak up some sights from the river. As you are chugging along the river the boat itself sounds quiet and offers a fairly smooth ride. The captain provides you with interesting facts about Brisbane. It was a relaxing little trip and well worth the money spent.
