The Brisbane River, Brisbane

(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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 itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Brisbane has to offer, including The Brisbane River.

  • The Brisbane river is a place very nice to go for a walk. The scenery is nice and there are lots of places to visit. 
  • The river is beautiful. From the boat you have a good impression of the city, the bridge, the skyscrapers. The boat makes many stops. Also the locals use it. It's like a fast tram or bus....... A must...  more »
  • A meandering river which passes heavy industry and industrial areas. All so neat and tidy. A credit to all businesses along the river.
