Take the City cat to get a great view of the city and its historical landmarks. Cheap and regular ferries. Use it to jump on and off to see the various points of interest along the river.

The Koala and River cruise is not the same as the city cat, no. City cat only goes upriver as far as St Lucia, whereas the Koala and River cruise takes you up to Lone Pine at Fig Tree Pocket, I believe.
