South Bank Accessible Transport

There are a number of wheelchair accessible transport options to the Brisbane South Bank, such as the City Cat ferry’s, trains, buses and of course, the option to drive in. We find it’s easier to catch public transport into the South Bank as finding a disabled parking bay always difficult. Normally we catch a train into either South Bank station or South Brisbane station, which are both accessible stations.

Cruising the Brisbane river on a Brisbane City Cat Ferry is always a fun scenic way to get into the South Bank. Most of the City Cats terminals are now wheelchair accessible. Since the 2011 flood, most of the Brisbane City Cats wharves in Brisbane had to be rebuilt, which means all the new wharves on the river are now accessible.
