This is the perfect time of year for walking in Brisbane. The mornings and evenings are cool and you’re almost guaranteed clear, blue skies.
If you’re an early riser, walking along the cliffs at Kangaroo Point gives you one of the best views of the city. I went for a walk this morning, just in time to see the first rays lighting up Brisbane’s city buildings and Botanic Gardens.
You can take the high road beside River Terrace, for views from the top of Kangaroo Point’s cliffs.
There’s also a riverside walking path at the base of the cliffs. If you’re at the top of the Kangaroo Point cliffs, stairs near the stone shelter drop down to river level.
There were a lot of people out walking and at least five paddlers glided past the City Botanic Gardens while I took photos.
You might be able to see a boardwalk just showing through the mangroves in the photo.
You can reach the Mangrove Walk from the Goodwill Bridge or by following the riverside path which skirts the City Botanic Gardens.
