River To Bay River Tours

Classic Pubs Tour

Cruise Down the river with a beer in hand

















Visit Brisbane’s favourite PUBS

Nothing beats a fresh, cold beer and having a laugh with friends at an iconic Australian pub. River to Bay’s Classic Pubs Tour will take you on a cruise down the Brisbane River landing at some of Brisbane’s favourite pubs. As a guest of River to Bay, you can enjoy priority entry and amazing exclusive offers at each location. 

What to Expect

From the comfort of one of our custom-built vessels, enjoy views of the city skyline as you hop-on and hop-off at three of Brisbane’s most-loved pubs. First stop is the iconic Breakfast Creek Hotel – where if you’re lucky, you may be chosen to spike the keg. Then, hop back on board to cruise down to the landmark Story Bridge Hotel. We’ll land right on the beach under the Story Bridge (the perfect place for photo op). Your final stop will be at either the legendary Port Office Hotel or the historic Stock Exchange Hotel.
