Starting near the Queensland Maritime Museum, South Brisbane, this walk takes you on a circuit along Brisbane River, crossing Goodwill Bridge and Story Bridge along the way. A scenic urban trail that crosses two bridges in the heart of Brisbane, this walk is bound to show you the beauty of the city whilst letting you get acquainted with your surroundings. There are lots of things to look at along the track, from historic viewpoints to botanical gardens. An almost-infinite choice of cafes and restaurants are sprinkled around the track. The parks at the foreshore give you the option to have a riverside picnic on the other hand. As a plus, your four-legged companion is allowed to tag along considering he/she’s on a chain. The track can be very busy during peak hours as expected. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
