The legendary paddle boats of the Mississippi River inspired the design of this vessel. The Brisbane River boats have been carefully crafted from Queensland timber, including ironbark, spotted gum and white beech. They have become iconic on the Brisbane River, enjoyed by visitors and locals alike.
After a 3-hour cruise, your tour ends when the paddlewheeler returns you to the dock after a magical evening on the river.

We really enjoyed our dinner and cruise, we will definitely be coming back again. The entertainment was perfect, not to loud, during dinner. The staff were friendly and fun, engaging with the guests at all levels, dancing, photographing, and general chit chat. Was a fantastic experience, recommend highly. Finished our stay in Brisbane off perfectly before we flew home to NZ. Thankyou Guys and Gals.
My husband and I had a wonderful evening on this beautiful river cruise! We loved it so much we considered doing it for lunch the next day but we only had 4 days in Brisbane so decided to explore elsewhere. Thank you for this special evening. Shout out to Jean who went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our evening. Highly recommend!
The weather was perfect and the staff were very welcoming. The entertainer was a lovely man, however all the songs were a trifle dull! The atmosphere was ordinary due mainly to the very small crowd on board. We did however have a lovely night on the Brisbane River, spending some of it out on the front deck, soaking up the wonderful atmosphere. Just a magical experience. Would recommend this night out to everyone while in Brisbane.
First trip to Brisbane and thought this would be a great idea to meet up with family friends for a nice night on the river... Turns out you couldn't have a conversation due to the hens party on the cruise... It could be the 'oldie' coming out in me, but for anyone who was trying to enjoy the evening wouldn't have due to the excessive amount of noise from the said party. And whilst I'm all for everyone having a good time, I think the company should give paying customers options to move at least to the second floor which was not in use at all so you could have a decent conversation. Whilst you can walk about the boat, and the man who was the entertainment for the evening had a great voice and did a good selection of songs, the rowdy women were an absolute turn off. Our family friends didn't truly enjoy themselves, and it was their first time on the cruise as well. We had to escape to the very top of the boat to have a decent conversation as we'd not seen each other for over a year. I wasn't overly impressed with the food and wonder why everyone seems to have issues with cooking steamed veg...they were very hard. I will admit the pasta was delicious, but I didn't think much of the dessert. Some of the crew were good, but I can't comment on service as we are not heavy drinkers and therefore did not require a lot of drink service from the crew. Everyone seemed happy except for the incident at the beginning when checking in where the man seemed really put out that we booked for 4 people but only 3 were written down on their list. And whilst the issue was resolved, he lacked professionalism during that bit which was not a good start at all. We will return to Brisbane, but would not return to the dinner cruise as we have done dinner cruises in Sydney and much prefer an a la carte menu on that cruise then buffet as we didn't find the buffet here overly impressive... I wouldn't recommend this at all...
On the night we could not use the top deck as they had a private party booked which meant this did not give us much room to move around. Food was excellent but could have done with more entertainment as we only had one person singing and no room to dance.
We booked the paddle steamer because we only had 1 night in Brisbane. But was disappointed because it didn't go that night so we had to go on another boat. Not what we expected. We had just finished a 16 day cruise so the boa twasn't what we wanted. It was the experience of the Paddle Steamer. Lucy and George. W A
Nice evening however not how the trip was originally advertised. We were sold a 3 course dinner with live jazz band entertainment while cruising the river. However we were greeted with a dinner buffet and karaoke cabaret style singer. Management had changed since booking. Disappointing.
