Cruises from Brisbane

The third-largest city within Australia, Brisbane takes a subtle backseat to Sydney and Melbourne, presenting a less hectic, calmer and peaceful Metropolis in the southeast corner of Queensland. Still maintaining its own level of city hustle and bustle, Brisbane is a laid-back river city filled with art galleries, museums and restaurants, all waiting to kick start your dream cruise.  Brisbane is brimming with a relaxed and welcoming vibe and really comes alive at night through its vibrant music scene that fills the local bars and pubs. A multi-cultural, friendly and welcoming hot spot, Brisbane is overloaded with things to see and do. Whether it is planned or a last minute cruise deal, pick your dates and let us find the best deal for your Brisbane cruise now!

When is the best time to cruise Brisbane?

Like the majority of Australia, Brisbane weather conditions are fit for cruising all year round. If choosing to cruise Brisbane in June to August, this could be the only time you will need to pack your raincoat amongst your swimwear, but even then, this could only be needed first thing in the morning or for your evening riverside stroll. If you are looking to escape any rain, avoid travelling between December to March when the official wet season of Brisbane occurs. Many Ozzies choose the sunny months of May to October to explore Brisbane due to the hours of sunshine yet lack of humidity. These months bring minuscule changes in temperature, making the packed itinerary days slightly easier in the sunnier yet cooler climates.
