Brisbane Corso Reserve

This morning I discovered and explored one of Brisbane's most coveted picnic spots - the Brisbane Corso Reserve at Yeronga, a spectacular nature reserve situated peacefully between the banks of the Brisbane River and a long and winding cement path.

The place was a buzz of activity with families making use of both the ample facilities and the bike path. There is no shortage of things for a family to do at this glorious nature strip, here are some suggestions;
Meander along the path on bikes, rollerblades, scooters or your legs, walk the dog
Make use of the BBQ facilities and sheltered areas
Kids can play in the large covered playground in the centre of the reserve or head across the road to the Corso Jumps - a Dirt Jump for BMX enthusiasts

Throw out a line at one the fishing spots
Picnic at one of the sheltered areas, picnic tables or lay out a blanket under the shade of one of the majestic trees

Or you can do what I did today, which is park myself on one of the staggered benches close to the scenic river bank. I sat there soaking up the sights and sounds of nature, watching the sunlight dance on the water, transforming the surface into a sea of sparkling stars.

There are bathroom facilities in the middle of the reserve where Cansdale St meets the Brisbane Corso, and parking is plentiful with several small carparks and on-street parking available along the stretch of nature.

So next time you're planning a family outing, head down to this tranquil suburban oasis, soak up some sun and fresh air while enjoying the stunning river views.
