Great way to visit Brisbane and move around town. Staff is truly friendly, price is very reasonable especially if you get a go card. Try to take the boat ride at sunset, stunning

Great form of transport for places along the Brisbane River. We took a City Cat from Hamilton to Southbank, which was something different to do on a weekend. Cheap enough, & without the hassle of parking.

According to the Brisbane City Website, walk to the North Quay Ferry Terminal which is essentially where Elizabeth St would intersect the river. For you walk on George St in the direction of Elizabeth then head to the river. More

Hi.. I will be travelling from Gold Coast to Brisbane for a day in June. I want to know which is the cheapest and fastest mode of transport? Secondly, I am confused whether to take the city cat ferry or the Brisbane Greeters for the sightseeing. If i take the city cat ferry will I be able to search places on my own? Regards Rina
