A great walk from Brisbane City to New Farm
From Brisbane City is an easy walk to the surrounding suburbs. The different time of the day and the change of seasons make the walks always interesting and different.
Starting at the Wheel of Brisbane at South Bank Parkland, the walk is about 6km, allow one hour and a half hours. The walk is very easy since it is mostly flat - you just need to have the level of fitness to walk for about 6 km. This walk includes a ride back by ferry from Sydney Street, New Farm, into Brisbane City.
The New Farm walk is regularly run by the Hiking South East Qld and More on Monday evenings. The walk can be done at any time of the day and in any season. You can start the walk at 5:30pm, moderate pace. For this walk, a map of Brisbane can be handy or download a good app on your smartphone that can help you to navigate the City.
Start to walk in South Brisbane towards the Maritime Museum. If you like you can stop by Epicurious, a garden made up of fruits, plants and herbs run by volunteers. The plants have a tag with their name and you can smell the herbs. Please do not pick the plants.
Walk towards the Goodwill Bridge, cross the bridge and you are on the northern end of the bridge. Here turn right and continue in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens along the Brisbane River, towards the Story Bridge.
Brisbane City Council's underground King George Square Car Park is between Ann and Adelaide Streets, vehicle entry is via Roma or Adelaide Streets and exit is via Roma Street. Note the low clearance entry: 1.93m.
