See the highlights of Brisbane from the water on a dinner cruise aboard a majestic wooden paddlewheeler. Enjoy live entertainment, a delicious buffet dinner (or three course a la carte menu on Sundays) that features fresh seafood and produce, then stroll along the deck for unobstructed views of the waterfront as it twinkles at night. It's the perfect way to spend a night out with a romantic partner, loved ones, or friends visiting from afar.


  • Romantic experience, perfect for couples
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Buffet dinner included
  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
Admire the fine craftsmanship of the multi-level paddlewheeler as you step aboard for your evening cruise. Friendly staff show you to your table and inform you of the evening's schedule.

Once aboard, feel free to stroll around the deck to watch as the waterfront lights up for the night. Thursday through Saturday, enjoy a live cabaret show featuring magic, comedy, traditional island dances, fine dancing, live music and more. On Sundays, a solo acoustic musician provides live entertainment. If you want to dance, music and a dance floor are part of the fun.

As your paddlewheeler sets off along the river, your buffet dinner (or three course a la carte menu on Sundays) is served. Choose your meal from an extensive selection of delicious hot and cold dishes or see the sample a la carte menu below. The menu features great Australian produce and fresh seafood, as well as gourmet breads, pasta or rice, and mouth-watering desserts

When you have finished your meal, enjoy unobstructed views from the dining room or deck. Relax as you take in the sights of Brisbane from your vantage point on the water.

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.
