Mirimar Cruises

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

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.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
