Hubby and I did the ultimate lunch experience package. It was a wonderful way to travel slowly up the river with the band playing. It was a trip back in time. Staff were friendly, food lovely. We will be back and bring friends next time. We parked in the nearby car park at the suggestion of a company so only had a 50m walk to the pier.

the Kookaburra Queen Sunday Jazz Cruise is an excellent way of leisurely cruising along the Brisbane River
carolyn byrnes-suchy 6 years ago

the Kookaburra Queen Sunday Jazz Cruise is an excellent way of leisurely cruising along the Brisbane River. Together with a delicious 3 course lunch, sitting at a table on the outside deck, a gentle breeze, the 3-piece jazz band was brilliant. such a relaxing cruise. great way to introduce visitors to one of Brisbane's delights.

The Kookaburra River Queen is a great venue for an anniversary or birthday celebration. Book your family on this old world vessel with food, beverages and entertainment on board.
