The Brisbane River is definitely worth going to see. Drop into Southbank and you will be amazed. We always stop by when in Brissy.

We have taken the River Cat up and down the river and it is most enjoyable. But an even better use of the river are all the paths along the river where we walk and ride our bicycles 2-3 times each week. :)

You can spend hours walking or scootering along the paths of the river. Don’t forget to go at night too, as the reflexions are brilliant

I highly recommend going for a scooter ride along the walking path along the river. Even a nice long walk or bike ride would be nice. It’s flat so good for pams or wheelchairs too
