The originator of this walk left us very little details as to where the walk started and what route it followed (we have editted it to start at New Farm). We believe that it incorporated a number of the walking/cycle paths along the Brisbane River.

This is one of our regular walks. Our Route actually starts at Newstead Ave near Newstead House. We follow the river as far as the walking track goes, then head to the road and walk parallel with the river along Skyring Tce for one block before turning left to return to the river. The path follows the river all the way to New Farm Park. To this point we have walked 3km so you could start here. After crossing the park take Oxlade Dve which is the road running parallel with the river. Turn left at the Myrthyr Bowls Club and follow the path as far as it goes once again. At the end (Sydney St Ferry terminal) take the road and then turn left onto Griffith St. at the end turn left and this takes you onto the river walk - a boardwalk/bike way into The Howard Smith Wharfs. Walk through here and the path takes you further along the river through Eagle St Pier and the Brisbane Botanical Gardens. You will then come to the Goodwill Bridge - a pedestrian bridge across the river. Cross the bridge and over the other side are the Southbank Parklands. We usually stop here and have something to eat before walking back via the same route. One way is about 10km. However the roughy shown seems to go back on the other side of the river past the bottom of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and cross back over the Story Bridge. However you need to take the steps up to the road before you get all the way to the point under the bridge. On the other side there are lifts or stairs that take you back down to the Howard Smith Wharfs. This is a fantastic walk that we enjoy finishing in the evening. I hope these directions are helpful.
