Seller's Comment


Iconic Brisbane River tour boats are now for sale. These authentic paddle wheelers were once used to market Brisbane to the world.

Kookaburra I and Kookaburra III are ready for an innovative buyer to take them on their next journey. If you ask around there is always someone who has been part of a celebration or great moment on one of these beautiful vessels at a wedding, birthday, engagement or romantic dinner cruise.

These beautiful boats have been part of the Brisbane river for decades.

Once operating from the Eagle street pier these boats were part of the busy Brisbane River bustle and are ready to be moved to either a new port or destination to be rediscovered by a new generation of boating enthusiasts, with a dream of owning a riverside restaurant or a unique convention or function centre.
The future possibilities are endless. Presenting an entrepreneurial opportunity for an individual or company to take their dreams further with a unique concept.
These vessels are set up to be fixed or floating restaurants and can cater for a myriad of functions. With three levels including the rooftop for photogenic opportunities and the ability to cater for 400 plus guests for either private functions or just have a great restaurant experience on the water. Both vessels have enormous commercial galleys and the ability to be self sufficient.

Here is a very rare opportunity to have your home and business premises in one - No huge commercial rents or housing costs. Best of all no lawns to mow.
