What you need to know

Offering a convenient departure point right from the heart of the city, this popular Brisbane River Cruise has been taking visitors to the popular Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for over 70 years. There is no better way to travel to the largest Koala sanctuary in the world than with a comfortable boat ride along the Brisbane River that will take you right to a disembarking point on the shores of the park. The perfect way to get up close and see eye to eye with Australia's huge range of native creatures while also enjoying the many sights and sounds of Brisbane's most attractive waterfront suburbs which are accessible only by boat.

You'll gain the benefits of an entertaining narrated journey from the experienced, entertaining and knowledgeable captain and see breathtaking modern mansions and historic Queenslander homes along Brisbane's exclusive riverfront.
