Enjoy a Family Walk


The Brisbane region has endless fabulous walks, but they are sometimes not manageable for young walkers or those pushing strollers. With this in mind, here is a selection of great accessible walks suitable for the whole family.

1. By the Sea: Shorncliffe to Sandgate Foreshore
With flat, wide paths ideal for strollers and toddlers on bikes or scooters, the foreshore is a great place to escape the city and enjoy an invigorating walk. The Shorncliffe to Sandgate stretch is approximately 2km.

You'll pass picturesque Queenslander houses and will be able to spot a variety of wading birds when the tide is out. The fantastic adventure playground set amongst the trees at Moora Park at Shorncliffe and the childrens' wading pool with fountains and water slides at the Arthur Davis Park at Sandgate make a great start and finish to the walk.

There are plenty of shady BBQ and picnic points along the way as well as an excellent selection of cafes and fish and chip shops along the foreshore.

2. In the Bush: Stockard Creek Circuit at Koala Bushlands
The 1.4 Km walk through open Eucalypt forest starts at the Visitor Node, with an interactive wildlife information wall, BBQ point and toilets. The smooth track with a boardwalk section is ideal for strollers and the viewing platform over the creek makes a perfect snack stop. Look for koalas above the scribbly bark trees and listen to the sounds of the forest.

3. By the River: Teneriffe to New Farm
Enjoy watching Citycats coming and going along the river from the riverside walkway between Teneriffe and New Farm. There are plenty of interesting diversions along the 2.2km stretch including the historic Woolshed buildings, a collection of stamped anchor points, a musical conch sculpture and a marble car.

Finish the walk at the Powerhouse where you can enjoy a coffee or babychino. Children will also love the fantastic adventure playground in New Farm Park.
