Beginning May 2021, GoBoat will launch a fleet of six new eco-friendly picnic boats stationed in Albion, along Breakfast Creek at the Brisbane River for patrons to rent. 



GoBoat Brisbane is scheduled to launch its fleet of six picnic boats to the public in May 2021. Each boat stands 5.5 metres long, fashioned from recycled materials such as wood and bottles. Shading will be installed to shield those aboard from the elements. 

The boats are eco-friendly and quiet, and the fact that they are powered by German electric engines means they do not produce any smog, nor do they make loud noises. This, combined with the fact that boating licenses won’t be required to operate them, makes them suitable for public use. 

Those interested in renting the boats can do so for the price of $109 an hour, $189 for two hours, and $229 for three hours. People will be able to bring their own food, beer, and even pets for the ride. Up to eight passengers will be able to fit in a single vessel, making them ideal for group picnics. 

GoBoat Brisbane will open in May 2021 at Breakfast Creek along the Brisbane River. For more information, visit their website here. Follow their social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates and announcements concerning the upcoming picnic boats.
