The cruise ship terminal is capable of accommodating ships up to 270 metres in length. Ocean liners, super yachts and expedition ships dock at its international wharf on average once a week.Due to Gateway Bridge height restrictions several larger ocean liners which are unable to pass under the bridge dock north of the bridge at Pinkenba Wharf or at the Multi-user Terminal at the Grain Berth, located at Fisherman Islands.The Wharf is the Brisbane home for the P&O liner the Pacific Sun. As of March 2010, the Brisbane Cruise Terminal caters for the Pacific Dawn, and acts as an additional hub for the cruise ship. In its first year of operation, the cruise terminal hosted 55 ships, making Brisbane the second largest cruise port in Australia.

  • Love this place. Great food lovely senery. Would be great if there was a new zealand ice creamery
  • Since their renovation there is more than enough parking and it's very easy to come here for the cinemas or restaurants. Can get parking validated, nice views of the river.
  • In general, this precinct offers a wide variety of places to eat, and great entertainment. It is often busy when a cruise liner is docked, but now the site has introduced paid parking, the issues with getting a spot are pretty much nullified. Being in such close proximity to Eat Street Markets can make it tricky to gain access during the Eat Street period, but time it right and you'll have an enjoyable visit.
  • Do many things to do. Watch ships, have coffee or a meal. Go to Dendy Cinema.
  • Good food great staff nice setting
