Had a great time! The staff were wonderful, the entertainment was great. The buffet was well organised, The cruise was full of Christmas revellers who all had easy access to the buffets and enjoyed dancing and singing with the entertainer. There was plenty of room and we didn't feel rushed or crowded.

Food wasn't amazing but it was decent
Jackie Cheung 1 year ago

Food wasn't amazing but it was decent. Drinks are included in the package so it's a good price. My in-laws were in town from the UK and we took them on a cruise to change the pace of the trip a little bit. I can imagine the cruise not being the most comfortable if the weather isn't great.

It was really a wonderful experience for a tourist like me and my family
Zareen Begum Mohamed 1 year ago

It was really a wonderful experience for a tourist like me and my family. The crew was amazing, friendly and accommodating. The view of Brisbane was spectacular and we managed to snap many picturesque views from the cruise. The buffet spread was also a variety. Maybe improve on the desserts.

Thank you so much
Edward Cox 2 years ago

Thank you so much. My parents really enjoyed the cruise. The food was excellent, great range and tasty too. Onboard entertainment/tour guide was fantastic, he can't really well. No need to pre-book seats. Drinks vouchers recommended - brings the price down a little.

Enjoyed the tour and the staff were all polite and friendly
Sara Leithy 2 years ago

Enjoyed the tour and the staff were all polite and friendly. Did take them a little while to notice no one had taken our drinks order but we weren't in a rush. Food was really delicious and the onboard entertainment was pleasant although more commentary on what we were sailed past would have been nice... unless there just isn't that much to see and talk about! All in all good value for money though.

Amazing Cruise
Craig Byrne 2 years ago

Amazing Cruise! We enjoyed an amazing lunch, full gourmet food with plenty of options. Drink prices were very reasonable especially when you purchase the book of vouchers from the main desk before you board. Amazing weather and great service. We didn't want to get off the boat. Thank you all again!

Brisbane Buffet Lunch Cruise on the Kookaburra Showboat was a fun experience
Jeffrey Manzer 2 years ago

Brisbane Buffet Lunch Cruise on the Kookaburra Showboat was a fun experience. The food was delicious, the staff extremely friendly, the entertainment enjoyable, and the views were fantastic. The host was entertaining and not overbearing, offering easy tunes to enjoy while eating and bringing special attention to sites or occasional celebrations (honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries) amongst the guests. We enjoyed checking out the view from the various decks and were able to take great pictures, even on a cloudy and slightly rainy day. Well worth the lunch, but beverages are not included. Tokens can be purchased beforehand (less expensive option!) or drinks can be purchased on board. Thanks for the great afternoon!

Wow what can I say
Jennyfer Forbes 2 years ago

Wow what can I say... my husband and I were up from NSW on a holiday and we saw an ad on Facebook for Experience Oz so we looked through and found a lunch cruise on the Brisbane river. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were very helpful and the cruise overall was amazing.
