Apollo Road ferry wharf is located on the southern side of the Brisbane River serving the Brisbane suburb of Bulimba. It is served by Transdev Brisbane Ferries' CityCat services.[1][2]

History[edit]

The original wharf closed when Brisbane City Council ceased operating the cross river service to Bretts Wharf in December 1998 due to growing losses.[3] It reopened on 4 February 2008 as the downstream terminus of the CityCat service.[4][5][6]

The wharf sustained minor damage during the January 2011 Brisbane floods.[7] It reopened after repairs on 14 February 2011.[8][9]

Until October 2011 Apollo Road wharf was the downstream terminus for the CityCat service when it was extended to Northshore Hamilton.[10][11]
