My husband Peter and I had been given this cruise and ultimate dinner package as a gift from our daughter and son in law. And what a gift it was!!! We had an amazing evening and we would recommend this experience to anyone. The food was beautiful and the service from all the staff was exceptional. We were very fortunate to have Jeazel serving us and she was lovely. Thank you for such a memorable evening and congratulations to you all for offering such a wonderful experience under these trying times with Covid. We look forward to returning and bringing our family with us. Stay safe and well. Kindest regards

Where is the sixth review star ??
JEAN our server was AMAZING. Professional and polite. My partner and I were beyond impressed with the service, food and experience we received on the Kookaburra Queen. Our 6 year anniversary was such a great day out, we enjoyed every bit of the cruise and will be back. Thank you so much for a fantastic day.
We had a truly wonderful afternoon cruising the Brisbane River and enjoying a delicious High Tea. The service was exceptional, very genuine, warm and welcoming. Loved the food and really appreciated the commentary as we went along. Super informative but never intrusive. The live music was fabulous and added to the atmosphere. The beverages were free flowing and topped up regularly or as requested. Highly recommended!

As our cruises are already incredible value for money with all food and beverages included, we don’t offer group discounts, however, if anyone in your group is a senior/teen, child or infant, please let us know as they do travel at discounted rates.
Unfortunately, our booking system does not allow for separate payments. If your group is all paying separately, we ask that you nominate one person in your group to collect the money from everyone, and then that person pays us in one transaction.
No, decorations are not something that we supply, but you are most welcome to bring your own on-board. If you are bringing decorations on board please keep in mind that you are in a public dining room, these must be able to fit onto your table and not obstruct any other guests. The only restriction we do have on decorations is that we DO NOT allow confetti or candles (battery operated are accepted) or any inappropriate decorations. If you are planning to bring any decorations on board please advise your Groups Co-ordinator so that they can arrange priority boarding for you that will allow you to hop on board as soon as the vessel is open so that you can decorate your table.
Speeches (unamplified) can be made at your table/s or if there is an entertainer on board, we would love to organise a ‘shout out’ (eg. “Happy 40th Birthday Zoe”) for you. Please let your Groups Co-Ordinator know what you would like to have.
You can most certainly make a request if you have a preference of boat or level, however as this is not a private booking this cannot be guaranteed. Boat allocations are not usually finalised until the week of the cruise and are determined based on a number of factors such as numbers, mobility needs of guests etc. We do try our best to cater to requests where possible, but this cannot be guaranteed.
This is not a private area, you do have your own allocated table/s in our dining area and just like any other restaurant, there are other guests seated in the dining room. If you choose to book one of these options, we ask that you please keep this in mind when planning any decorations or speeches. If you are wanting something more private for your group, head over to our private events page (click-through link) for more event options.
Unfortunately, it is not possible for your table to have some guests with the Ultimate drinks package and some guests without. We do understand that there may be circumstances where one person in your group cannot drink (i.e. pregnant, or does not drink etc.). If this is the case, all guests can choose the cruise only option and purchase drinks throughout the cruise from our bar.
