Treat yourself to a decadent afternoon of high tea aboard an old-fashioned paddle wheeler. This scenic 2.5-hour cruise on the Brisbane River includes sparkling wine with traditional treats such as quiches, finger sandwiches, scones and desserts. Stroll the outdoor decks and soak up the sunshine as you enjoy some of the most picturesque scenery Brisbane has to offer.
What You'll Get
When your wooden paddle wheeler departs from Eagle Street Pier in Brisbane, the crew will show you to your table for afternoon high tea.
Enjoy bottomless sparkling, beer and soft drink and free-flowing blooming tea as you’re entertained on board by a popular pianist. The menu features traditional sweet and savory selections such as freshly made scones served with jam and cream, chocolate fondant, caramel slices, gourmet savory wraps and finger sandwiches and more. Additional drinks can be purchased from the full bar.
Unobstructed views of the waterfront make for great photos ops of the highlights such as Story Bridge, a heritage-listed steel cantilevered bridge that connects north and south Brisbane. You’ll also pass the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Queensland Maritime Museum, Southbank Cultural Precinct, the Wheel of Brisbane and many more attractions.
After a leisurely 2.5 hour cruise, your tour ends when the paddle wheeler returns you to the dock.
