How to be an attraction without being an attraction. No expensive boat tour needed in Brisbane, this quick and well organised service brings you everywhere with the plus of an outstanding viewpoint on Brisbane! Very recommended

Smooth and quiet with great views across to the city skyline from nearly every spot on the river. An excellent way to get around, either as a tourist or resident.

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
