Kangaroo Point Park

Kangaroo Point Park at night

The newest place to enjoy sweeping views of Brisbane city is Kangaroo Point Park which is above the Kangaroo Point cliffs, opposite the City Botanic Gardens.

With shaded picnic tables and free BBQs, this park is great for a picnic, both during the day and at night when you can see the city light up.  If you don’t want to bring your own food, the Cliffs Cafe is nearby. (Public toilets are behind the cafe.)

There are open lawns, great for kicking a ball around and quirky play sculptures called Wormholes 2010 by artist  Alexander Knox. New public artworks will be installed over the next few months.
