The Cliffs Boardwalk

Brisbane City council local walks

The area between the cliff face and the river, called The Cliffs Boardwalk, has been beautifully landscaped with walkways, including a boardwalk through the mangroves, barbecues, picnic areas and gardens.

I participated in the River Run fun run which includes this boardwalk section as part of a 5km stretch of the Brisbane River which the runners loop back and forth on. I'm no flash runner but it sure is made easier when you have the beautiful river city views to distract you from the sweat and pain!

We walked this path on the return trip of a walk from Newstead House to Southbank which is another walk that we do regularly and highly recommend. That return walk is about 20km. We did the boardwalk in the evening which gave us a beautiful view of the city lights. Just lovely!

You don't have to travel far from the city for this one. Beautiful river views, a nice place for a stroll or bike ride.
