Why Book Accommodation at Kangaroo Point Brisbane?

Kangaroo Point Brisbane is one of the best locations in the city. Although lesser known compared to the CBD and the South Bank Parklands, Kangaroo Point is close to practically everything, thanks to its location along the Brisbane River’s eastern bend. Home to several outdoor recreations such as rock climbing and several attractions such as the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and the Story Bridge, the area may be considered as one of Brisbane’s best kept secrets.

However, most visitors to Brisbane automatically stay in the CBD, so if you’re an interstate or international guest I wouldn’t be surprised if you have not heard of Kangaroo Point Brisbane. But let me assure you that after reading this article, you will not only know all about it, but you’ll want to book your accommodation here too!

Kangaroo Point Brisbane

Kangaroo Point is quite the unique Brisbane suburb, because it is situated on a peninsula that is formed of volcanic rhyolite lava and rocks that are said to have been in place since the Triassic Period. The peninsula is located right in the middle of the Brisbane River, which flows all around it. This location not only makes the area quite picturesque, but also affords several recreational possibilities. So it’s no surprise that the area is increasing in popularity with Brisbane visitors.

Well, while I’d love to list all the benefits this one-of-a-kind suburb has to offer, I’ll stick to the best it has to offer and also tell you why, if you are looking for Kangaroo Point accommodation, then Bridgewater Terraces is the place to be.

Kangaroo Point Brisbane for Holidaymakers

Kangaroo Point is a haven for thrill-seekers and climbing aficionados, but thanks to its lush parklands, picnic sites and the relaxing view of the Brisbane River that surrounds the area, it has plenty to offer to all who visit Brisbane. Let’s take a look.

  • Kangaroo Point Cliffs – The famous volcanic rock cliffs of Kangaroo Point, present a popular challenge for rock climbing and abseiling, thanks to its steepness which was caused by quarrying operations in the past. Reaching the top also offers a nice reward, a magnificent view of Brisbane, best seen in the early evening. Find out more from my previous post: Get active or enjoy a picnic at Kangaroo Point Cliffs
  • Storey Bridge – You can also go on an exciting Story Bridge Adventure Climb, which will keep you occupied for 2 hours and a half. Now considered as an iconic landmark of Brisbane, the Story Bridge towers 74 metres over the city and promises sweeping views encompassing the CBD up to Moreton Bay and an awe-inspiring bird’s eye view of the Brisbane River. The climb itself is safe; a climbing suit will be provided, but you do need to wear sneakers or running shoes. Under the bridge is the Storey Bridge Hotel, another famous landmark which happens to be just 100meters from Bridgewater Terraces at Kangaroo Point Brisbane.
  • Other attractions – Whether or not you decide to climb the cliffs or the Story Bridge, you will find plenty to do in Kangaroo Point Brisbane. Below the cliffs are spacious parklands that invite you to just sit back and have a nice picnic, and the surrounding river also presents myriads of recreational possibilities such as kayaking and paddle-boarding. There is also a bike trail that runs along the Brisbane River and connects Kangaroo Point to the South Bank Parklands, as well as a heritage trail dotted with sculptures that pay homage to Australia’s top scientists and researchers who contributed to forming the Kangaroo Point we now know and love.

From Bridgewater Terraces, the trip takes just 7 minutes when you take the City Ferry, which is just 500 metres away from our location.
