Given that Bridgewater Terraces is nestled in Kangaroo Point Brisbane, we happen to know the area very well. Famed for its location and stunning natural beauty, Kangaroo Point is the home to the largest number of residential and holiday towers in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. Boasting breath-taking city and river views, it’s the best place to stay regardless if you’re in town for some R&R or for business. It’s just one kilometre away from Brisbane CBD and via ferry you can get there in as little as 7 minutes. The suburb is also just 15 minutes away from the airport and the iconic Southbank.

Considered the best location in Brisbane for travellers who want to experience the city’s finest natural beauty, this place is perfect for travellers who want peace and quiet but still want to be close to Brisbane’s key districts including Southbank and Brisbane’s CBD. Some of the best things that you can do while you’re here are the following:

- Rock Climbing – If you’re more adventurous, I would recommend climbing the unique cliffs of Kangaroo Point while having Brisbane’s CBD as your backdrop. Suitable for both beginners and experienced climbers, this introduces you to the thrill of climbing and the basics of rock climbing.
Where to Eat
Being the home to the largest number of residential and holiday towers in the city, Kangaroo Point Brisbane offers a wide selection of restaurants and stylish eateries. Whether you’re looking for authentic Australian food or international cuisines, you’ll sure to find at least one restaurant specialising in it. If you’re looking for great ambiance, relaxed atmosphere, and amazing food, I would recommend dining at the Story Bridge Hotel or the Pineapple Hotel, which serves the best steak in town! However, if you crave for al fresco dining, head to Eagle Street Pier just across the river where you can dine while having the amazing Brisbane River as your backdrop.
