Its been a while since I did this cruise so I cannot comment on the food. When we went, it was good. The Cruise is a nice way to enjoy the sights of Brisbane from the River.
You can go for a "Cruise Only" cost $20au(2009) or a Cruise including Lunch, or, a Dinner cruise.
Their website is good, with all the different available deals.
These authentic paddlesteamers, built via the traditional methods, were built in 1986 and 1988 - and were used extensively throughout the World Expo 88 festivities. They are floating venues for business meetings, conventions, cocktail parties, Xmas parties, weddings and other group functions, or you can book as singles or groups for breakfast, morning and afternoon teas, lunch and dinner.
Enjoy the hospitality Queenslanders are famous for while cruising and dining along the scenic Brisbane River.
The boats depart from Eagle Street Pier in the middle of Brisbane, but can also collect and drop people off at Southbank.
The boats are licensed to carry 350 people each, giving them a wide scope of potential uses.
We had a lovely vt meeting lunch cruise on the Kookaburra Queen Cruises. I met Steve (stevemt) and we thouroughly enjoyed the afternoon. However, I wouldn't really recommend the Kookaburra Queen lunch cruise if you think you're going to get a yummy smorgasboard feed as there wasn't much food at all and not a great deal of variety. Anyway our conversation and a couple of bottles of wine certainly made up for that dissapointment :o)
