    Brisbane River Party Cruises Charter

        Brisbane Star Cruises is newly owned and operated by Grant and Lee Heffernan. We are a husband and wife team with two young children, a 7 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. Although we are new to operating a charter vessel on the Brisbane River, we are certainly not new to the hospitality, service, and marine industries, having spent years as crew working for the rich and famous on private luxury yachts. Grant is a qualified yacht Captain and has worked in the yachting industry for 30 years. He grew up in and around boats, as his family owned and operated a small marina in Sydney.  Lee worked as a Chief Stewardess in the yachting industry, and also as a wedding planner in the very popular wedding destination, Port Douglas. We are excited to be able to take on the Brisbane Star, and to have the opportunity to restore her to her former glory. We will be calling on our years of experience to create many happy memories for you, of your special occasion.
