Best Things to Do in Kangaroo Point

The historic inner city suburb of Kangaroo Point may be known for the Story Bridge Hotel and colonial cottages but its streets are packed with hidden gems, from Japanese tapas to a rooftop and clifftop bars, a microbrewery, French bakery, riverfront cafe and more.

Here's some of the best things to do for both visitors and locals in Kangaroo Point:

Brisbane's most unique dining experience is this floating seafood restaurant onboard two vintage prawn trawlers
