Thank you for such a memorable evening

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

We enjoyed every bit of the cruise

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.

The service was exceptional

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!
