Arrive at Eagle Street Pier in time to board your dinner cruise. Step aboard the traditional wooden paddlewheel boat, crafted from Queensland timber, and find a comfortable seat on deck for unobstructed views of the Brisbane skyline as it lights up at night.

Enjoy the ambiance of a peaceful river cruise as you sit down to a buffet dinner of contemporary dishes that showcase Australian produce and other local products--dishes such as confit beef, oven baked fish, potato salad, green pea salad, and desserts such as lemon cheesecake and panna cotta (see Itinerary for sample menu).

After dinner wraps up, listen to live classical music and modern favorites as you hit the dance floor. After about three hours, head back to Eagle Street Pier; the rest of the evening is yours.
