    Fun day and staff very knowledgeable so ask away anything is not a problem. Koalas well cared for so what’s not to like. Not often you can this close to the koalas so give it a go.

    Nice place for lazy afternoon. Everything you need is well in reach. Superb for families with small children. We rented bikes and drove next to the river.

    Beautiful garden and excellent customer service. We spent an excellent and enjoable day wandering around this garden. There are various sections, each focussing on a specific theme, e.g. tropical, australian bush etc.

    Customer service reps have been wonderful, knowledgeable and patient in explaining the various sights and what to do.
    The onsite restaurant is very slow in serving on the day we visited. All in all, an enjoyable and fun outing.

    Tip: Best to visit early as parking in the garden is limited

    As the title suggests, there are some beautiful water features to look at. There were plenty of amenities and shady spots to sit and relax, as well as the convenience of a short walk to Roma St train station.

    Very Well maintained gardens, several precints in the one area, bordering the Brisbane River and edge of the city. The Duck pond is quite large with plenty of turtles and Lizards roaming its edge.
    Nice little markets on Sundays, inside the city gates end - perfect for a breakfast or lunch picnic date, a range of food stalls, coffee and juice tents and a Gin tasting tent to cap it off.
    There is also a proud little display of 'dinner plate' size Hibiscus flower's, over near the rivers edge,towards the children's adventure playground.

    THe whole river is lined with walk, cycle and scooter lanes. I hired a scooter and went for miles and miles checking out the sights. This is a great way to explore Bribsnae. The scooters can also be used in the CBD and inner city suburbs. Just drop the scooter anywhere when you are done. Easy as.

    A pivotal point to place yourself after exploring the city, or taking in a walk or run. Kangaroo Point is one of the best spots to ‘drink it all in’ and the view of Brisbane at night is quite spectacular. My daughter and I enjoy any time spent here, often after a day of adventure, travel and fun. Whether it be to dangle our legs over the wall, to share a story, or simply absorb the view, this location is great place of beauty and reflection. What you capture through the lens will be reward of another special day spent in a prominent place and with those who you love 💜 red 🌹

    Aside from muddy bits, this is a very impressive large suburban park with gardens, lawns, big trees and decent facilities. The big problem is the cycleway cutting the park off from waterfront access.

    Amazing park with so much to do including a water play area.
    Amazing coffee for the parents from Sheena’s coffee van, a great addition to the park

    We parked the car at Sandgate and walked along Eagle Tce to the Shorncliffe Pier and back.

    Really lovely wide promenade that was full of families and people walking their dogs.

    Perfect day to be out in the sun and enjoy the walk.

    We enjoyed our drive to Mt Glorious, especially the winding roads and beautiful views.

    The only thing is that you need to keep an eye out for the lookouts as they aren't especially well sign posted.

    We also had the added pleasure of stopping by the Fernvale bakery for a delicious pie on the way home.

    A great park for families to have a picnic, play in the water and go for a walk. All so close to Brisbane

    After spending two weeks at this amazing lake. There are two camping areas, one has powered sites and very clean amenities. The other is more designed for campers with camp kitchen, bbq and amenities. Both sites have lake views and access to lake for boating and kayaking. The fauna is amazing - from the kangaroos and Joeys to possums and sugar gliders. Thoroughly recommend Lake Wivenhoe.

    Recently visited with a friend for lunch. We opted to eat by the seaside on a high tide as there was ample picnic tables available.

    It was a quiet and pleasant outing, with a relaxing lunch. Would recommend for picnics, outings with the kids to kick a ball around and walking the dog. Avoid on a strong northerly wind as it is exposed.
