River Plaza Ferry Wharf

Gliding along the Brisbane River on either a Brisbane CityCat or a ferry is an ideal way to experience the beautiful city of Brisbane, Australia. With glorious weather standard for this city, this is definitely the most relaxing way to see all of the sights.

One of the eight stops on the Brisbane CityCat Inner City route is the River Plaza ferry wharf. This wharf is on the south bank of Brisbane and is the nearest wharf if you want to visit the Queensland Maritime Museum. As the name suggests, this museum is home to a vast range of Queensland maritime memorabilia, galleries and educational facilities.

The River Plaza ferry wharf is near the southern end of the Goodwill Bridge. The Goodwill Bridge opened in October 2001. It is off-limits to vehicular traffic so is a great way to safely cross between the south bank of Brisbane and the central business district, to explore around the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens and Queensland University of Technology. If walking doesn't really excite you, you can hire bicycles or rollerblades from nearby South Bank Parklands.

Other Brisbane attractions that are ideal to visit on the Brisbane CityCat Inner City route include South Bank Parklands, QUT, Kangaroo Point Cliffs, the Eagle Street Pier and Dockside, famous for its great restaurants and comedy club. If you've got a whole day free, a daily Brisbane City Cat ticket is the best option. Make sure you contact TransLink to organise a Brisbane map to help you plan your river journey to ensure that you discover as many of these fantastic sights as possible.
