I wanted to do it since I moved to Brisbane and last night we finally found a good opportunity to do a night cruise on the Brisbane River. Travelling on water is undoubtedly the best way to soak in the city skyline and doing it at night when all the buildings are colourfully shining makes it even more beautiful. Also most of Brisbane’s sights can be seen from the river, such as the Story and the Kurilpa- Bridge, the Brisbane Wheel, the Treasury Casino and the impressive Kangaroo Point Cliffs. Another good news is, that there are ferries run by the Brisbane City Council called CityHopper that are going every 30 minutes and are absolutely for free. The ideal stops for a fun cruise on the river are in my opinion the Eagle Street Pier at Fortitude Valley and Southbank.
We got on the ferry at Sydney Street last night and disembarked about 40 minutes later at South Bank, which is a beautiful location to get dinner at one of the plenty international restaurants or just go for a romantic walk.
