Read on as I list some great riverside activities you can look forward to on your Brisbane holiday. By adding these activities to your holiday itinerary, you’ll definitely leave the city in high spirits.

1. Climb the Story Bridge

For an epic and unforgettable adventure experience in Brisbane, consider adding a Story Bridge climb to your holiday itinerary. The Story Bridge Climb is one of only three bridge climbs worldwide and is just a short 200m walk away from our riverview accommodation here at Bridgewater Terraces. So by staying with us, you’ll have no trouble getting there.

You’ll be able to witness the river gleams, the sparkling city and the scenic rolling hills on this adventure. Climbing this iconic bridge will give you a feeling of achievement and you’ll literally be on top of the world! I recommend that you try this activity first, before moving on to others in the list.

2. Visit the Story Bridge Hotel

Once you’ve climbed the Story Bridge, you can relax in the Story Bridge Hotel, which lies just next door. This iconic 7-storey hotel was built back in 1886 and features one of Brisbane’s finest pubs for you to chill out and relax in after your climb. The Story Bridge Hotel also hosts special events including the National Festival of Beers and the Australia Day Cockroach Races.

With fine food and great drinks to look forward to, Story Bridge Hotel will definitely relax and lighten your mood.

3. Abseil Down Kangaroo Point Cliffs

After you’ve climbed the Story Bridge and visited the Story Bridge Hotel, your next adventure awaits at Kangaroo Point Cliffs. Our Brisbane riverview accommodation is located 1km away from Kangaroo Point Cliffs where you can go abseiling for a unique experience.

Kangaroo Point Cliffs offer unobstructed views of Brisbane’s skyline and the majestic Brisbane River. By abseiling down these cliffs, you’ll experience the best of Brisbane’s beauty. Abseiling is a fun filled activity that will rejuvenate your spirits.

4. Stop for a coffee at the Cliffs Café

When you’re done abseiling, you probably need a little break from all the excitement. The Cliffs Café at Kangaroo Point Cliffs offers you just that.  Located 1km away from Bridgewater Terraces, the Cliffs Café offers spectacular views of the city and the Brisbane River. The café also makes some great coffee and snacks – perfect for a lazy afternoon meal.

Whether you’re holidaying with friends or family, everyone will enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Cliffs Café. Kids will love the open park spaces next to this little café.

5. Visit South Bank

After enjoying the adventure activities I’ve mentioned above, you can unwind by visiting South Bank. South Bank is the recreational, cultural and educational precinct of Brisbane, located along the Brisbane River – and just 3km away from our apartments. You can get to South Bank on foot on the splendid walking track that wraps from Kangaroo Point to South Bank – enjoy gorgeous riverviews all the way from your accommodation.

South Bank has many galleries, museums, exhibition centres and parklands you can visit. Most areas are well known for attracting tourists. You can bet that you’ll delight in the leisurely atmosphere that South Bank offers.

6. Shop till you drop at Queen Street Mall

Everyone likes to do a little shopping on their holiday and I bet you’re no different. Having enjoyed the most popular tourist destinations of Brisbane, you must add the Queen Street Mall to your holiday itinerary. This vibrant lifestyle precinct is one of Australia’s most popular malls and it draws in over 26 million visitors annually.

With over 700 retail stores, local boutique stalls, entertainment venues, theatres, spas and markets, Queen Street Mall has it all! This mall is a 7-minute ferry ride then a 300m walk away from our Brisbane riverview accommodation in Kangaroo Point. Make sure you don’t miss out on this premier entertainment and shopping destination. Nothing quite like some retail therapy to ease your troubles!

7. Wine and dine at Eagle Street Pier

I’m sure you’re wondering about dining options in Brisbane as well. I personally recommend you to visit Eagle Street Pier – Brisbane’s world class dining precinct. Nestled on the banks of the Brisbane River and a short 7-minute ferry ride from Bridgewater Terraces, Eagle Street Pier features some award winning restaurants and lots of quality bars. Here, you’ll find both fine dining and casual dining options along with some great live entertainment.

Dining at Eagle Street Pier is the perfect way to wrap up your holiday – you’ll leave the city with fond memories.
