A quiet little space in the heart of Teneriffe, Submariners Walk is a heritage trail honouring the sacrifices made by the great men and women defending our nation. Running along the Brisbane River, through the original site of the US Navy Submarine Operations and Maintenance base during World War II.
Submariner's Walk Heritage Trail ending at Ferryman's Hut
The trail ends at a quaint spot across the road from the Australian Estates Woolstores... an abundance of history surrounds! Fanatics of yesteryear, nature-loving souls and even those who enjoy a quiet space for lunch can be found meandering this important site.
Grab a picnic rug, a book and take some time out to enjoy the scenery as this space is also home to Ferryman's Hut (now converted into a Metro Arts creative studio). The gardens are small, but the grass is perpetually green. The soft breeze across the river will catch you off guard as you marvel at the CityCats in stream, and the company of other guests is always as friendly as can be.

This space is a local-hit for your lunch break, servicing the nearby offices and construction sites, while also playing host to the variety of morning dog-walkers and fitness enthusiast. The weekends remain calm and collected, however, it is fair to say that foot-traffic increases.
There is something for everyone here at Submariners Walk Heritage trail! For more information on the trail, the Queensland Branch of Submarines Association Australia hosts a cornucopia of knowledge over at this link.
