The Brisbane Riverwalk is one of Brisbane’s absolute must do’s – a water highway for pedestrians and cyclists jutting out along the most scenic tract of Brisbane river between New Farm and Brisbane CBD.
The gorgeous grounds of the University of Queensland are the backdrop for this scenic Brisbane river walk, which circumnavigates the historic centre of learning dating from 1921.
Following a scenic river gum-shaded path of around 2 km return, this peaceful walk has a playground at each end as well as a quirky role in Brisbane’s convict history.
This highly varied inner city walking circuit of around 5km takes in old quarries, mangrove boardwalks, river parks, botanic gardens, bridges and the Riverside strip of bars and eateries.
This delightfully scenic walking track of about 6km return and cycle path heads east away from the highway, bordered by towering gums.
This easy grade scenic walk of around 1.5km circumnavigates the town lake, via boardwalks, parks and playgrounds and bird hides and is suitable for wheelchairs, prams, bikes and scooters.
Just over the hill and out of town centre one of the mini lakes that grace Springfield Lakes has a quirky promenade pathway of about 1.5km return that leads to an exclusive pocket park.
This walk/ride along the entire length of West End’s river bank begins at Orleigh Park ferry terminal
Those looking for a non-taxing stroll may enjoy the first 2 km return section of this semi-shaded walk along the river
From their inception as the penal colony’s first farm in 1828 to today’s living museum these splendid gardens are culturally significant as the only place in Queensland to have had a continuous uninterrupted horticultural history for so long.
This 5 km return medium level walk-ride begins in The Queensport Rocks Park vicinity, on the site of an old meatworks.
