The Bicentennial Bikeway runs along the Brisbane River between Toowong and the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens. The wide, paved path stretches approximately 5.7 kms and is accessible from thirteen, signed
The best features of the Bikeway are that it curves right along the river and is several meters lower than Coronation Drive so that you can skate, roller blade, cycle, jog or stroll beside the river without the noise and pollution of the roads. When you are among the birds, mangroves and waterfront, it is hard to believe that you are in the middle of the city.
The Bikeway ends in the Botanical Gardens. This is an ideal spot for a lie down or for a coffee at the City Gardens Café. However, there are several access points along the pathway where you might choose to end your journey. Exiting at Archer Street in Toowong, Park Road in Milton and most exits in the CBD will lead you to the café district. If picnics are more your style, there are plenty of benches and lookouts along the Bikeway.
