The good thing about living and working in a city that is based around the river is that it’s always easy to get there for some fresh air. That’s pretty rare in many cities.
Brisbane has a number of walking paths (and cycling paths) that hug the river, so it’s really just a case of finding what’s closest to you and starting the walk.
Plenty of the paths take you past well known restaurants as well, particularly the Eagle Street Pier precinct. The foodies may be people-watching you as you go past, but there’s no reason you can’t do the same to them There’s also markets every Sunday.
Or you can just enjoy the walk. Those are the Kookaburra River Queens to the right, a very well known and loved sight by locals.
What makes a city for you? Do you have a favourite walk around the Brisbane river?
