During the steamy Brisbane summer, it can be just too hot to walk during the day. If you’re an early bird, a walk just as the sun is rising is a great way beat the heat. At this time of year, the sun rises at around 5:30am. See the current sunrise time at Our Brisbane.
Being more of an owl than an early bird, I love a stroll after dinner and one of my favourite walks is along the river at South Bank. It’s a popular spot and you’ll find lots of other people talking a walk. The lights of Brisbane’s CBD create colourful patterns on the river. South Bank also has free, lagoon style swimming pools along with a sandy beach and these are open right through the evening. For an after-walk treat, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby.
