If you have chosen Saturday's 3-piece jazz cruise, you will enjoy a roast carvery buffet featuring sensational roasts carved by chef, an amazing selection of salads, international dishes and much more. Drinks are available for purchase at the full bar.
After your meal, enjoy live music from a 3-piece jazz band (if you choose the weekend cruise).

The weekend cruise includes an entertaining chat and a tune performed by the boat's resident historian.
The design of the famous paddle boats on the Mississippi River shaped the design of this vessel. Carefully crafted from Queensland timber, including ironbark, spotted gum and white beech, Brisbane River paddlewheelers have become an icon of the Brisbane River, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
After a 2-hour cruise, your tour ends when the paddlewheeler returns you to the dock.

This was a wonderful experience. Total value for money. To get a 3 course meal and trip was amazing. The food was out of this world, service excellent and very good commentry. To hear the story about a tug boat captain and what he did to save a disaster after the 2011 floods was amazing but to then find out he was our captain on the day made it even more memorable. Took the opportunity to buy the book and go up to the bridge to get it personally signed by a true hero and gentleman with proceeds going to the local children's hospital. My husband is still raving about this cruise. When in Brisbane again will probably do the night cruise. Thank you for a memorable lunch11 out of 10.

Lovely trip with a lovely lunch. They moved us and put us on a table they set up outside as we had been seated away from a window....most accommodating. Really glad we took the cruise.
