Support wildlife conservation and learn about the amazing flying foxes on a unique Batty Boat on the Brisbane River.
Batty Boat Cruises has been around for a number of years and even though the number of bats seems to be diminishing, the popularity of the cruises seem to be going up. They are often sold out as soon as details are released, so this is your chance to get your tickets soon to welcome in the New Year.
The boat is now Covid Compliant and has expansive decks and a cafe, which can supply some food and drink. It's an afternoon of fun and information, as well as a chance to support a worthy cause.
Interact with orphaned baby bats on board, enjoy the live commentary and learn about Brisbane's fascinating flying foxes as you cruise along the Brisbane River to Norman Creek, in time to watch the sunset and flying foxes fly out over the river. On the return journey, you can enjoy the city lights as the Boat returns to the South Bank Cultural Precinct. Cultural Centre Pontoon Cultural Centre Boardwalk, South Brisbane QLD 4101 (50m upstream from the Victoria Bridge).
