Great cycling and walking facilities along the river. It took me 45 mins to walk the 3km from Auchenflower to Southbank. Well used and safe. Lotsa young joggers and cyclists Water available along the way and city cat stops. Well signposted for exits to Roma St parklands, Wesley Hospital etc. Great initiative.

Brisbane is not an especially interesting or attractive city, and one is forced to seek out attractions that are probably not all that interesting. In the vain, the Brisbane River is not very long or scenic, however it does give the city a nice focal point and provides some nice places for strolls. There is also a free ferry service running a few kilometres along it, which makes for a nice diversion.

My daughter suggested a day on the river on one of the huge River Cats. We had a wonderful, relaxing tour from one end of the Brisbane stretch of the river to the very end. The day was perfect, the weather was beautiful, and the scenery lovely. I would heartily recommend this trip for people of all ages. The children loved it too. We stopped at Southbank on the way back, and had a coffee and a look around, then completed our journey.

Early morning stroll along the river to get coffee and it did not matter that it was a grey and the rain was drizzling. Lots to see, including the odd scooter that has had a mishap! It’s also quite entertaining watching the daily battle between the commuters on foot, 2 wheels and motorised scooters!

Such a great place and really the centre of all things great in Brisbane. We love walking, scooting or ferrying the river, stopping in at some great restaurants and cafes along the way.
