Mirimar Cruises has been taking visitors on the most scenic cruise along the Brisbane River to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Mirimar Cruises has been operating for over 60 years and is one of those “must do” experiences while in Brisbane.
Mirimar Cruises offers two different tours. The Koala and River Cruise - the famous and iconic half day tour which includes a world class commentary while traveling through the city’s most historic landscapes and historical home sites and the Koala Express - a quicker trip on a faster boat for those visitors that have less time to spend on a full day tour.
Looking for a cruise experience that is uniquely Australian? Climb aboard the brand new Mirimar II for an Australian adventure, like no other. A Koala and River Cruise is the perfect way to get up close and personal with Australia’s cuddliest creatures while enjoying the sights and sounds of Brisbane’s most attractive waterfront suburbs that are only accessible by boat.
