The Brisbane Riverwalk - walking or cycling from the CBD to New Farm

The Brisbane Riverwalk is one of the best ways to move between two of the city’s most vibrant precincts, whether you’re walking, running or cycling. It links trendy New Farm with the CBD via a suspended path sitting above the water, while offering a beautiful view across the river to Kangaroo Point and a fresh angle of the city.

How to access the Brisbane Riverwalk

Pedestrians and cyclists coming from New Farm can get on to the path at Riverview Court. On the CBD side, the walkway ends at the historic Howard Smith Wharves where it connects to the riverside boardwalk at Boundary Street. The path is part of an uninterrupted riverside route that stretches all the the way to the City Botanic Gardens.

Cycling and walking the Brisbane Riverwalk

Along the Brisbane Riverwalk the cycling and pedestrian pathways are segregated for safety. An opening span of the pathway allows vessels to access the shoreline where it would otherwise be blocked by the walkway.

Brisbane Riverwalk and the 2011 floods

The original floating pathway washed away when major flooding struck Brisbane in 2011 but reopened in 2014 with a new design built to withstand a one-in-2000-year flood. The first walk, constructed in 2003, was a well-used route and the replacement thoroughfare proved just as popular.
