It was really a wonderful experience for a tourist like me and my family. The crew was amazing, friendly and accommodating. The view of Brisbane was spectacular and we managed to snap many picturesque views from the cruise. The buffet spread was also a variety. Maybe improve on the desserts.
Food wasn't amazing but it was decent

Food wasn't amazing but it was decent. Drinks are included in the package so it's a good price. My in-laws were in town from the UK and we took them on a cruise to change the pace of the trip a little bit. I can imagine the cruise not being the most comfortable if the weather isn't great.

Thank you so much

Thank you so much. My parents really enjoyed the cruise. The food was excellent, great range and tasty too. Onboard entertainment/tour guide was fantastic, he can't really well. No need to pre-book seats. Drinks vouchers recommended - brings the price down a little.

Enjoyed the tour and the staff were all polite and friendly
Sara Leithy 10 months ago

Enjoyed the tour and the staff were all polite and friendly. Did take them a little while to notice no one had taken our drinks order but we weren't in a rush. Food was really delicious and the onboard entertainment was pleasant although more commentary on what we were sailed past would have been nice... unless there just isn't that much to see and talk about! All in all good value for money though.

Amazing Cruise
Craig Byrne 1 year ago

Amazing Cruise! We enjoyed an amazing lunch, full gourmet food with plenty of options. Drink prices were very reasonable especially when you purchase the book of vouchers from the main desk before you board. Amazing weather and great service. We didn't want to get off the boat. Thank you all again!

Brisbane Buffet Lunch Cruise on the Kookaburra Showboat was a fun experience
Jeffrey Manzer 1 year ago

Brisbane Buffet Lunch Cruise on the Kookaburra Showboat was a fun experience. The food was delicious, the staff extremely friendly, the entertainment enjoyable, and the views were fantastic. The host was entertaining and not overbearing, offering easy tunes to enjoy while eating and bringing special attention to sites or occasional celebrations (honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries) amongst the guests. We enjoyed checking out the view from the various decks and were able to take great pictures, even on a cloudy and slightly rainy day. Well worth the lunch, but beverages are not included. Tokens can be purchased beforehand (less expensive option!) or drinks can be purchased on board. Thanks for the great afternoon!

Wow what can I say
Jennyfer Forbes 1 year ago

Wow what can I say... my husband and I were up from NSW on a holiday and we saw an ad on Facebook for Experience Oz so we looked through and found a lunch cruise on the Brisbane river. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were very helpful and the cruise overall was amazing.

Love the atmosphere on the cruise

Had a fabulous and relaxing time on the Kookaburra Queen Cruise Boat
Michelle 4 years ago

Had a fabulous and relaxing time on the Kookaburra Queen Cruise Boat. The food was amazing, cooked and presented perfectly! The music on the boat was uplifting and relaxing! My waitress, Lisa service me with highly and friendly customer service. The views of Brisbane including The Story Bridge was breathtaking! Highly recommended to anyone who was to see Brisbane by a different side by water!

We found the service was excellent
Jeanne Neville 5 years ago

We found the service was excellent, the selection and quality of the food, could not be faulted. As I am a vegetarian and the other two guests with me were not, we were all able to enjoy our menu. It was a very relaxing experience. If I were to find one suggestion I would have like to hear a little bit of commentary as guests from other countries would not know the special sights on our beautiful river banks. Overall thank you Kookaburra Queen for a wonderful experience.
