The Brisbane Paddle Wheeler (as it was known) was built in 1977. It sailed into the Brisbane River for the opening of Expo 88 and has never left! It is best recognised for its bright red paddle on the stern of the vessel. This is purely decoration and does not drive the boat! She has two brand new engines to do the driving!
The Paddlewheeler recently underwent a major upgrade leaving her all shiny and new! Best of all she has been purchased by the leading cruise company; Brisvegas Cruises and is now sailing more than ever!
To coincide with her refurbishment, the Brisbane Paddlewheeler has been renamed:
“The Lady in Red”
Boasting seating for up to 120, 2 complete levels and an elevated stage, full sound and lighting system, separate ladies and mens toilets; this vessel is perfect for any event – More like a function centre that floats. The “Lady in Red” has ample head height for even the tallest guests! Wide open areas make for fantastic views of the Brisbane River, excellent ventilation and most of all an amazing atmosphere! An all weather boat means that even in the nastiest of weather your party will not be restricted and able to utilise the whole of the vessel.
We invite you to celebrate your next event on “The Lady in Red” and let the fantastic and friendly team from Brisvegas Cruises guarantee you a party to remember!
