104 Brisbane, Australia Port Reviews


by Harmonuk

We docked at Fishermans Island in Brisbane which is a 30 minute ride away from the City centre. Plenty of taxis were available for those cruisers not taking excursions or those not wanting to wait for the shuttles. Last time we came we docked at Brisbane Cruise port which is nicer and it’s more convenient to take the river ferry into the city. Brisbane itself is a very clean city with lots to do and great shopping opportunities.



Ships will dock at either Portside or the Grain Terminal. Portside is better as there are shops, public transport etc. At the Grain Terminal you will have to take a shuttle to the City. City Cat ferry is best way to see city at a reasonable price.

The ship berths 35 minutes by coach from the centre of Brisbane. We met friends on the south bank of the river which traverses Brisbane. This area is an attraction itself with a sizeable city beach, restaurants, theatres, attractions of all descriptions. Brisbane is an attractive city, beautifully manicured and cared for by the residents.
