Outdoor activities around Brisbane City

Winter is well and truly over, the days are heating up and it’s time to start enjoying the outdoors again! Brisbane is a fantastic city to explore in spring with gardens, walking tracks and activities all located around the river. 

Kangaroo Point

Begin your walk with a view of the city from the top of the cliffs along River Terrace. Make your way down the famous Kangaroo Point stairs and experience a scenic walk along the Brisbane River towards the Story Bridge. Depending on the length of walk, turn around and continue back to the stairs. Enjoy coffee at the Cliffs Café as your reward for making it to the top!

Walking not your style? Discover exciting outdoor activities at Riverlife Brisbane. Located at the bottom of Kangaroo Point cliffs, Riverlife is the perfect place for adventure seekers. Activities include rock climbing, Segway tours and laser tag or you can hire bikes, kayak’s, rollerblades and scooters.

For the older kids, discover Brisbane from the water with ‘Friday Night Paddle & Prawns’. Unwind on a 90-minute kayak journey and return to buckets of fresh ocean prawns, bread rolls and chilled wine, beer and soft drinks. 

Botanical Gardens

Take a gentle walk through the beautiful City Botanical Gardens or take a picnic to enjoy in the open grassed picnic areas. Families with kid’s can take advantage of the newly completed playground. Free guided walks are also available around the gardens.

Roma Street Parklands

Roma Street Parkland is a popular destination for both locals and tourists. The gardens in the parkland were designed to excite the imagination with a number of community spaces for visitors to utilize including a children’s playground, lake precinct, rainforest and amphitheater. 

South Bank

Soak up the sun at South Bank, Brisbane's lifestyle and dining hot spot. Take a brisk walk along the river front and loop back over to the city through Queensland University of Technology and the Botanical Gardens. Just be warned, the selection of restaurants, Street’s manmade beach, museums and kid friendly activities may distract you from the walk!
