A reasonably priced transport system that allows access to the city centre when staying further out. It is a leisurely way to see and appreciate the city without the hustle of road transport.

Starts in the city and travels down river almost to the sea. The sights are great worth the cost. Air conditioned inside in comfort for those hot days or ride outside with the breeze.

The City Ferries are a good way to see the city from the water but also a good way to get to some suburbs without the traffic. Comfortable and easy to use.

Great free ferry that goes up and down Brisbane river. Good signs and timetables on show at each stop.

I recently caught the city cat from South Bank to Portside. The trip took almost an hour. I could have walked nearly as fast. The speed limits in the city and along Kingsford Smith Drive make for a painffully slow trip.

Hello. Sounds like the advice from other people is accurate. It's worth the effort to take a ride in a City Cat. Views of the city from the river are great, and Southbank is a lovely area. Have a nice visit in Brisbane.
