What you can expect

Skipper your own pleasure boat to admire Brisbane from a whole new perspective! Setting sail from the Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct in Newstead, these eco friendly electric picnic boats are a wonderful way to explore the river city and reconnect with family and friends over a picnic or cheese platter.

Suitable for up to eight passengers, you’ll be sure to find the best picnic spots in Brisbane with the freedom to cruise the inner city as you please or anchor down in a cosy spot and enjoy a refreshing drink or meal in the sunshine. Self drive electric boat hire is perfect for couples, families or groups of friends. Pets are also welcome to join you out on the water for the day.

Simply book online here and then it's up to you to gather your crew and pack the picnic!
