Kangaroo PointBrisbane

Striking cliffs line the river at this inner-city location, where Brisbane locals come to get active and spend time outdoors.

Kangaroo Point is an exercise-junkie’s paradise that boasts a prime location right in the heart of the city.

Stroll along the boardwalk that winds through 3 miles (5 kilometers) of scenic parklands and take in the views across the stately Brisbane River. Check out the City Botanic Gardens on the opposite bank and enjoy unparalleled views of the iconic Story Bridge from the top of the cliffs.

If you’re feeling brave, book in for the Story Bridge Adventure Climb then finish off an exciting day with a drink at one of the pubs or restaurants tucked right under the bridge.

Visit this area in the evening to see local rock climbers scale the floodlit Kangaroo Point Cliffs, or put on a harness and have a go yourself at a climbing session where you’ll be in the safe hands of an experienced instructor.

The sight of the city lights reflected on the water creates the perfect atmosphere for a picnic, so bring some supplies and cook a meal on the free electric barbecues dotted throughout the park.

Paddle up the swirling waters of the river on one of the kayak tours run by the local adventure center. Other activities on offer include rollerblading, abseiling and stand-up paddleboarding.

Rent a bicycle to explore the trails that run all the way to the famous South Bank Parklands nearby. This ride will take you past bustling waterfront cafés and tranquil patches of mangroves before ending at Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct.

Catch the ferry from the Thornton Street Ferry Terminal across to Eagle Street Pier, a waterfront district famous for high-end dining and trendy bars.

Stay in the wide variety of accommodations on offer in the streets behind the Kangaroo Point Cliffs; this remains one of the most convenient locations to be based while exploring Brisbane. Eat at one of the restaurants clustered on Main Street, where low-key options are great for those nights when you don’t want to strain your budget.

The central suburb of Kangaroo Point is easy to access and offers the rare chance for an outdoor adventure right in the middle of the urban jungle.
