Moving Around

Brisbane has a good public transport network primarily comprising buses and river ferries.

 

Bus – easy connections into the city and the night-life hubs of West End and Fortitude Valley.

 

Ferry – the City Cat ferry service is a great way to get a sense of Brisbane from the river. With stops dotted along the north and south banks throughout the city, it is an easy way to get around and see the city at the same time. The University of Queensland (St Lucia campus) has a dedicated ferry stop.
