2. Go for a cruise on the Brisbane River

At Bridgewater Terraces, many of our guests choose to take Brisbane River cruise whilst on holiday, and I don’t blame them. Indeed, a cruise on the Brisbane River is one of the best ways to explore our magnificent city. The cruise travels at a leisurely pace, allowing you to soak in the beauty of Brisbane completely.

If you’re a fan of river cruises then you’ll love our holiday apartments at Bridgewater Terraces. We’re located on the banks of the Brisbane River in Kangaroo Point. So, by staying at one of our holiday apartments, you simply need to walk a short distance to get to the river cruise.

3. Go for an adventure at Riverlife Adventure Centre

If you’re fond of adventure like I am, then you must add the Riverlife Adventure Centre to your list of things to do in Brisbane. Riverlife offers a range of outdoor adventure activities you can enjoy. These include kayaking, rock climbing and abseiling, among others. This adventure centre also offers scheduled tours and adventure equipment on hire. This is definitely, an activity that you must explore on your Brisbane holiday.

Riverlife Adventure Centre is located just metres away from the holiday accommodation we offer at Bridgewater Terraces. By staying with us, you can enjoy a day of adventure and walk back to the comfort of your Brisbane accommodation.

Another very popular thing to do in Brisbane is the Story Bridge Climb and most of our guests have this activity at the very top of their list of things to do in Brisbane. Why? Because we’re located just 400mt from this attraction!
