I love Brisbane’s riverside pathways. They’re especially pleasant for a stroll during Brisbane’s balmy summer evenings.
If you’re new to Brisbane, try the riverside path between South Bank and Kangaroo Point. The track is flat and lit at night and there’s lots of interesting public art to look at on the way. You’re likely to see rock climbers scaling the cliffs at Kangaroo Point, even in the evening, when the cliffs are lit by giant flood lights.
It’s a great return trip for walking off a meal you’ve enjoyed at one of the many restaurants and cafes at South Bank.
San Antonio in Texas also has a vibrant and well-used River Walk which dates back to the late 1930s. It’s interesting to read the history of the area, especially the recurrent flood problems that mirror Brisbane’s own flood history.
