The idea of river crousing is always seductive, but usually ends up , for me, with beconig bored with the tedium of the river, the the terminal dullness of the ancient fellow passengers and the entertainment which usually comprises a series of Elvis songs sung with mega-decibels and off-key!

The temptation to leap overboard is barely suppressed.

So what a wonderful surprise our night cruise on the Kookaburra Queen 2 proved to be... a revelation that river-cruising could be so fill with joy, great food and scintillating company.

The 3-course dinner was easily 4-star and had the approval of all out companions at surrounding tables, the wine list extensive and reasonably priced, the pure fun-filled ambience of the boat was a delight!

The staff were attentive, professional and seemed to love their work...that in itself a big credit to the operators of this mighty paddle-wheeler.

Having been on river trips in several places in Australia, with the lingering memories per my opening comments, I strongly recommend a night cruise on the Kookaburras...you'll love the experience.

Congratulations to all associated with these vessels, we salute you!

Having just reviewed the cruising experience on the Kookaburra Queen 2, I believe they also rate a specific mention for their menu.

We often find that mass catering of the type required to feed several hundred starving dinner passengers is done in the army-cooking and presentation style...bland and boring!

So imagine our delight when presented with an imaginative and varied menu, with food that would match the quality of any 4-star restaurant in Brisbane.

The Vegetarian options were amazing, and just one of the reasons we will book another night river cruise with the Kookas.

Even if you book for the dining and wining, let alone the magic of the Brisbane lights and the tranquillity of paddle-wheeler cruising, you will share our sheer delight for this wonderful floating restaurant and its cuisine.

Thanks to the chefs and the staff for this great night!

We loved the dinner cruise! Tui Peter? was a perfect host/entertainer with a beautiful voice and sense of humour! The staff were friendly and professional, captain was very friendly and the boat had an ambience about it that was quite unique. Lovely dining as we cruised the river. We hope to do it again next trip to Brisbane :

excellent - very much enjoyed-
a little bit disappointed children not taken into consideration with meal times- or maybe better to offer something for little children - anything at all to eat- some parents forget to pack snacks- children generally eat early- but loved the cruise- will book again and recommend to others


thank you for a wonderful experience
