University of Queensland ferry wharf is located on the southern side of the Brisbane River serving the Brisbane suburb of St Lucia. It is served by Transdev Brisbane Ferries' CityCat services.[1][2]

A non-TransLink cross river ferry service formerly ran between the University of Queensland and Dutton Park, but was discontinued when the bus, cyclist and pedestrian only Eleanor Schonell Bridge adjacent to the route was completed. [3]

The wharf was destroyed during the January 2011 Brisbane floods.[4] A temporary replacement opened on 18 April 2011.[5][6]

On 25 May 2015 a new University of Queensland wharf opened. The new wharf is 450 meters upriver from the previous facility, and is near the UQ Lakes busway station and Eleanor Schonell Bridge.[7][8]
