Private Charter Cruise on the Brisbane River
including Morning Tea & Lunch
While on the Cruise to Lunch, you will see and hear all about Brisbane from the decks of the MV Neptune on a 1½ hour tour of the Brisbane River while enjoying a delicious Devonshire morning tea. You will be entertained by the informative commentary while taking advantage of the fantastic photo opportunities as we cruise past some of Brisbane’s most iconic sights. We will then hop off at Newstead Park and take a short stroll (400m) down to The Breakfast Creek Hotel and enjoy a delicious lunch from the set menu before returning once again to MV Neptune for our cruise back to South Bank Parklands.

Note: The Council has most of the boardwalks along the river closed off for maintenance, so please allow plenty of time to get to there. During these works, whether you are travelling by train, car, bus, taxi or on foot, please put into Google maps ‘Cultural Centre Tunnel’ for directions. Once you are in this tunnel there is a 50m walkway down to the river, our boat is directly in front of this Tunnel. The best carpark (if driving) is The Museum or Library Carparks (which are both located in the tunnel), as the boat is directly in front of the Museum. (See map).
