1973 Norman Wright 60 foot MV Brisbane Star ex Ferry

Launched 1973 as "Golden Bellbird" and built by Norman Wright & Sons for Golden Mile Ferries, "Golden Bellbird" was one of 9 Ferries operating on the Brisbane River until Golden Mile Ferries ceased operation in 1991. Brisbane City replaced the ferry run with faster and more efficient ferries, which of course still run today as City Cats and the smaller Kitty Cats.
"Golden Bellbird" was acquired (year unknown) by Brisbane Star Cruises and renamed "MV Brisbane Star" and operated a number of years as a party cruise boat until they upgraded their vessel and now operate as Brisbane Party Cruises.
MV Brisbane Star is now waiting for her next adventure.
