Brisbane River Dinner Cruise
From US$50.17

Step aboard a traditional wooden paddlewheel boat to see Brisbane's top sights from the water on an evening dinner cruise. Book your cruise ahead of time to avoid the disappointment of sold-out nights and to have your vacation planned in advance. While on the boat, enjoy live onboard entertainment, unobstructed waterfront views, and a buffet meal of local Australian products.

What to Expect

Arrive at Eagle Street Pier in time to board your dinner cruise. Step aboard the traditional wooden paddlewheel boat, crafted from Queensland timber, and find a comfortable seat on deck for unobstructed views of the Brisbane skyline as it lights up at night.

Enjoy the ambiance of a peaceful river cruise as you sit down to a buffet dinner of contemporary dishes that showcase Australian produce and other local products--dishes such as confit beef, oven baked fish, potato salad, green pea salad, and desserts such as lemon cheesecake and panna cotta (see Itinerary for sample menu).

After dinner wraps up, listen to live classical music and modern favorites as you hit the dance floor. After about three hours, head back to Eagle Street Pier; the rest of the evening is yours.

Best way to see the city at night

This was a splendid family experience and the best way to see Brisbane city lights. The buffet dinner was a great hearty meal and plenty for everyone. We did buy drinks tokens before boarding as suggested by the ticket office - but it was not...More

I think it was just under 3 hours which we thought was good amount of time. Plenty of time to eat/drink and enjoy.
