The Best Of Brisbane

Experience the sights and sounds of Brisbane on a narrated drive through the city centre before boarding a classic paddlewheel boat for a leisurely lunch cruise along the Brisbane River. Leaving the pier, your motorcoach will travel through Brisbane's riverside residential and commercial suburbs to arrive Kangaroo Point where you will have views back over the city and Story Bridge. Continue with your narrated drive past many of Brisbane's landmarks, such as the gracious City Hall with its neighbouring Anne Street Church, and appreciate the fine architecture of both the stately Customs and Parliament Houses. Board the paddlewheel riverboat “Kookaburra Queen” for an approximately 2 hour lunch cruise down the Brisbane River. Glide past Hamilton Hill and historic Newstead House. View the multimillion-dollar mansions at Norman Park and cruise through the heart of Brisbane. Travel past South Bank Parklands, site of the Expo ‘88 and the cultural heart of the city. At the completion of your river cruise, reboard your motorcoach for a scenic drive through Fortitude Valley and Chinatown, before returning to the ship.
