Take a leisurely walk or bike ride along the river. Then cool off in the pool. Stroll through the arts gallery.

Mum and I visited Riverway today. Pools are great. Had a nice coffee before doing the walk along the Ross River which we really enjoyed. We saw lots if birds and I loved the big Lilly pads with their beautiful flowers out in bloom. An excellent place and well worth a visit!

A great place for a morning stroll and a chance to take photos. Many people take advantage of the swimming pool facilities and the shady park area.

We stayed in the adjacent apartments with an absolute river view to this complex which made our daily walks very enjoyable. We were also able to take advantage of the free use barbeques and parklands. We would have loved to have taken advantage of the free to use pools but it was a little cool for us.

I just loved this Aquarium! Such an amazing place to learn more about the coral reef, especially for those who don't dive or snorkel. They have amazing displays and such variety. It's very imformative as well. I walked away understanding a lot more about the reef. I love the Turtle hospital! 1 Great place for the kids

We found our way to Riverway to view an exhibition at the gallery within the arts complex. A wonderful spot - great pools, playgrounds for kids including an all-access play area for children limited mobility, and lovely boardwalks on the Ross River. The gallery was free with an excellent exhibition, and the theatre looked to have a great program of... More

Stayed on the river front. The walks are flat and the views are great. The swimming complex is free and caters to various levels of swimmer. Bring some bread to feed the turtles and ducks on the river.
