Owner description: The Brisbane River is perfect for adventure, leisure and recreation. Go kayaking, stand up paddleboarding or take a trip on a City Cat. Celebrate the Brisbane River at a Riverfire function or just have a picnic in the riverside parkland. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a great vantage point to see the Brisbane River, or go rock climbing or abseiling with Riverlife Adventure Centre. Try Story Bridge Adventure climb, cycle, rollerblade or go for a jog. Dance with the local aboriginal tribe, Mirrabooka or visit South Bank. However you look at it you can't visit Brisbane without experiencing the River. Then cruise out to Tangalooma Island Resort for a must do experience. Enjoy!

Brisbane has utilised the river to it's very best advantage. We loved walking along the riverbank, dining with it in view, cruising up and down on the city cat - try an evening run, it's magical! I think the river adds personality to the city.

Once called the upside down river, it now has the stylish and fast citycats to move people around. Flanked by walkways, eateries, pubs and parks the riverside has something for everyone.
