Gay Brisbane Australia cruise

 

Day 1 - Brisbane, Australia
We set sail at 4.00pm
Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and Australia’s third-largest city. It’s something of a hidden gem – Melbourne and Sydney tend to get all the attention. Brisbane is well worth visiting. It boasts a near-flawless climate, excellent beaches and great places to visit. You’ll find a small but friendly gay scene in Brisbane, centred around several venues. There are gay bars, gay clubs and a gay sauna.

Luxuriate in a long day to hang out with your new friends, enjoy the beauty of the wide blue sea and take full advantage of all the ship has to offer.

Day 4 - Brisbane, Australia
Cruise home for disembarkation at 8.00am
Warm hospitality is what Queensland’s known for (well, besides pineapple on a burger) so it’s no surprise Brisbane has plenty of LGBTIQ+ inclusive venues, attractions and events to ensure you enjoy your stay. Australia’s third-largest metropolitan area, Brisbane, is experiencing a coming-of-age with a booming restaurant, bar and cultural scene that gives travelers an alternative to the more mainstream Melbourne and Sydney.
