Love this walk. We often park by the Story Bridge, catch the city hopper to Sydney Street then walk back along the River Walk to the Riverside Centre and catch the city hopper back to Story Bridge. All for free and what a great experience.

There were bar-b-ques for the public to use. Ferries to take you along the river in both directions. Rock climbing walls for the energetic people. Such a great space and so well used by the public.

Brilliant walk. Brisbane City Council has done a great job of upgrading the walk. It is such a nice thing to do. You pass through many different landscapes along the way.

We usually park at New Farm Park and walk into the city and back. A great option is to combine the walk with a trip on the Ferry. There is a great little cafe near the ferry stop in the park.
