A good way to fill in some time and have a look around the great city of Brisbane. you can city hop by getting on and off to have a look around and the cats come around fairly frequently.

Boarded at Bretts Wharf, Hamilton and disembarked at South Bank. First time ever on a Brisbane Ferry and was so impressed. Staff were so helpful and friendly. Scenery along the river was lovely. Definitely worth the trip.

this is a lovely way to travel in Brisbane, day or night.The City Cats glide along the river, and deliver you without stress, and feeling relaxed, to many areas of the City.

Going on a city cat is one of my favourite things to do in Brisbane. Having the breeze in your face on a hot afternoon....there's nothing quite like it. Highly recommend to anyone that never done it.

The Koala and River cruise is not the same as the city cat, no. City cat only goes upriver as far as St Lucia, whereas the Koala and River cruise takes you up to Lone Pine at Fig Tree Pocket, I believe.
