Hi Aussie - If you have time on Lake Brienz, you might like to stop at Giessbach, and go up to the Grand Hotel Giessbach on their private funicular ( since 1877). They have a nice terraces for a meal or a drink. I suspect they don't stock Foster's but you never know. ;-)
If you miss the next boat to continue, then the walk to Brienz is not too long - 6.5 km, about 1 hr 20 minutes.

Once at Brienz, you might like to take the steam-powered cograil train up to the Brienzer Rothorn. Quite a ride in good weather.
And, if for some reason the links that Arno provided to the timetables are insufficient for you, you can also look in the Swiss Rail time tables -

They cover trains, lake boats, buses and many cable cars for all of Switzerland, and also trains for journeys to /from Switzerland and another country.
