The Brisbane River is a river that flows right through the center of Brisbane. With several things to do surrounding each side of the river. From places to eat, parks, the Brisbane wheel and more. You can enjoy the walk way on either side of the river too.

This river is home to sail boats, pirate ships, ferries and kayaks! Rent a kayak and go up and down under the lit up bridges..magical!

Brisbane river is big and yellow. Ugly, but it's river in the middle of city so there isn't "crystal clear" expectation.

The Brisbane river is a beautiful thing to see and you won't have to spend a cent! The walkways are lined with nice benches to relax on and the bridges make for a nice little walk.

The river ferries are by far my favorite way of getting around. There's a nice fresh breeze and you get a great view of both south bank and the CBD.

Brisbane is a bit inland on a river. The river runs right through the center of the city and serves as one of the main features downtown. It's one of the most beautiful things about the city!

Das Zentrum von Brisbane liegt nicht wie erwartet am Meer, sondern ein ganzes Stück landeinwärts am Brisbane River. Der Fluss schlängelt sich durch die Innenstadt und prägt das Stadtbild ganz maßgeblich. Um ihn herum wurden einige attraktive Parks angelegt mit Fuß- und Fahrradwegen. Am meisten macht es Spaß, die Gegend mit einem der Elektroroller zu erkunden, die man seit kurzem überall per App ausleihen kann. Oder gleich eine kleine Flussrundfahrt mit einem Ausflugsboot machen, das lohnt sich ebenfalls.
