The Brisbane River provides a handful of ways for you to enjoy the city's ideal climate. Ride the current in a kayak or on a paddleboard, or enjoy a picnic in one of the riverside parks. Head to Kangaroo Point Cliffs for sublime views of the river heading toward Brisbane's city center. Perhaps the best way to experience the river, though, is along the Riverwalk. Here you can stroll a network of pavement along the river banks and even out onto the river itself. Before you head to Brisbane, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Brisbane trip planner, to make sure you see all that Brisbane has to offer, including The Brisbane River.

  • Always love to try different walking paths along the River. My favourite is from CBD to Howard Smith Wharfs. Beautiful walk.  more »
  • I have recently done several walks along the Brisbane River and the facilities are very good. The only possible detractor is the mixed use by pedestrians and cyclists, sometimes it gets a bit tight.  more »
