It's just a river that ebbs and flows in and out, but it does have the handy city hopper which is a free service to get you about town.
I was feeling pretty weak after the flu so a nice relaxing river trip seemed like a good idea: and it was. The trip was very interesting, the guide was better than most and I really enjoyed it.

We visited Brisbane for the first time recently, our friends took us on the free ferry service that operates on the Brisbane River (a bit like Melbourne's free City Circle Trams). Very pleasant with plenty to see, and all for free.
It's pretty easy to cross the river, there are a few bridges that link the 2 coasts, or you can take the hop on hop off ferry which will bring you across different alighting points (pay the fare onboard). Will suggest crossing one of the bridges during evening time though, it's quite a nice scene to see.
The Brisbane river is large and wide similar to the Thames in places. There is a hop on hop off free ferry now which is super making it easy to travel between Kangaroo point and the CBD. There are also longer ferry trips up, also down the river well worth trying.
