xperience the cruise aboard Brisbane's most famous river Boat, MV Mirimar, takes you 19 kilometres (12 miles) upstream through some of the city's most attractive suburbs and most interesting wildlife habitats.

You'll see modern mansions alongside graceful Old Queenslander homes with their wide verandahs and wrought iron lacework - all overlooking lush river-front gardens.

Come close to flying foxes (fruit bats) in the wild. You'll have the opportunity to get a close up view of a unique inner-city colony of fruit bats -so close you can hear the beating of their wings.

And you'll learn about Brisbane's past -some of it amusing and some of it horrifying as the Captain recalls our history. His local knowledge will amaze you!

You will arrive at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (entry fee included in price). Here you have a full two hours to cuddle a Koala, hand feed Kangaroos and marvel at Australia's many more animal wonders.
