we could not have asked for anything more...(Read More)

Kookaburra river queens 1

“We were planning a steampunk-themed wedding so we it had to have the right look. When I contacted Trista at The Kookaburra Queen was most helpful with options, menus, and everything they could offer us for our special night. Over the months leading up to ‘The Day’ I changed my mind several times on what I wanted, but no change was to hard for Trista to adjust the quotes and options… My sister and I visited Brisbane to check out the venue, Trista took time out of her day to take us on a tour. My mind was set, this is where we were definitely having it. My husband and I want to say thank you to the crew that attended to our every need and to Trista for giving me the confidence that everything was organised without me having to set it up. We had a fantastic night, our family and friends from all over Australia had a perfect evening. Oh and the lamb cutlets were ‘to die for’ and the chocolate truffles were ‘amazing’, the chef deserves praise for the beautiful food. Thank you again to the functions team and crew for looking after us, we could not have asked for anything more.”


Maddie & Jesse
it was a really magical experience...(Read more)

“Jesse and I both had a wonderful day. Everything ran seamlessly on our end and for us it was a really magical experience.
Our guests said things like ‘This was the most fun I’ve ever had a wedding’, and ‘I was left wanting more… particularly more pork belly!’ and ‘The whole thing felt like a movie’.

We loved having the buffet because people were able to go back for more and serve as much as they liked. It was also great having dinner ready almost immediately, because another thing that’s awful about weddings is waiting for 2 hours before the waiter brings your table any food. I think people enjoyed being in a different environment for a wedding, and seeing as how we had so many interstate visitors, it was a great touristy way for them to see and enjoy Brisbane.

The staff were very attentive to Jesse and I in particular – we had our own lady bringing us drinks all night long.

Thank you for the gorgeous bridal room set up, and for being so accommodating with the decorations set up. My Mum had great feedback about your staff on the day and found everyone was really helpful overall. We hope you all enjoyed being a part of the event also!”

Kelvin wedding on Kookaburra

“Faultless. Ours was the first same sex wedding on Kookaburra. The event coordinator was of great help. The boat was decked out in all its finery, including three rainbow flags flying proudly. The food was great, drinks package even more so. The wait staff were so friendly and supportive. If we ever had another wedding!!! Then we would charter Kookaburra Queen again.”


Bernadette & Scott
The perfect location for both ceremony and reception...(Read more)

“Kookaburra Queen I was the perfect location for both ceremony and reception. Originally on other boat, we switched venues at the last minute due to predicted bad weather. The staff were efficient, and everything was absolutely perfect. Stunning location, excellent food and friendly staff provided an unforgettable day.”
