With her classic wooden charm, the Lady Brisbane is the perfect vessel for your next occasion on the water. This substantial ship was originally built in 1972 by Milkraft in Brisbane to voyage out to the Great Barrier Reef. Now, after extensive renovations, she cruises the Brisbane River in retro style.

The Lady Brisbane features three decks, two saloons, six separate event areas, and a large dance floor to accommodate groups of any size. Her interior showcases beautiful timber craftsmanship, which has been lovingly restored and updated. Recent improvements include a second bar upstairs, new lighting, and refurbished saloons and restrooms.

Under her polished wooden exterior, the Lady Brisbane provides plenty of backup systems for power, refrigeration, and access. This ensures a smooth and comfortable journey. With a classic build and modern amenities, the Lady Brisbane is the ultimate setting for your next river cruise event. Her charm and capacity will make your occasion one to remember.
