Weve discovered some of Brisbanes best walkways, to get you wandering in the right direction.
You know those things that have engines, steering wheels, and comfy seats? The things that apparently get you from A to B so conveniently? So overrated! Why drive when you can walk? All the cool people are doing it. Especially in Brisbane when your feet will jump in excitement at the variety of walks on offer, some even contain ghosts!
Brisbane is incomplete without a walk alongside its river namesake. No matter where you are located along the river, day or night, youll be in for a treat. Beautiful scenery, and visits from the local ibis. Theres a floating walkway, designed for walkers and cyclists from New Farm to Brisbanes CBD. Feeling parched? Never fear, there are some great places to duck in for a feed and hydration complete with a gorgeous riverside view. No cars in sight!

As part of the experience, youll get awesome views of Brisbane and surrounds (and all those silly cars that couldnt do what youre doing) as well as a photo of the experience. Why cross it when you can climb? Yes, an excellent question.
