Cruise Ship Transfers

Brisbane has two Cruise Ship Terminals which are both within easy reach of Brisbane City.  Portside, Hamilton is located 6 Km down river from the city and caters for a number of Cruise Ship companies such as P&O's  Pacific Dawn and Pacific Jewell as well as Princess Cruises with The Sea Princess and Sun Princess. Larger ships, such as The Queen Mary 2 and The Diamond Princess are unable to clear the twin Gateway Bridges and will berth at  the International Cruise Terminal located at Pinkenba, approximately  23 KM from the Brisbane CBD.

Brisbane Mini Bus Charter with it's fleet of 37 ,33, 21 and 13 seat Mini Buses and Coaches are able to access both terminals and can provide Transport services for passengers embarking or disembarking the cruise sjhips.
