Cycle your way around Brisbane

Fitness buff or ex-couch potato, Kangaroo Point gives you the best (and most scenic) ways to keep fit during the holidays.

The Story Bridge Adventure climb is a great opportunity to take in a 360-degree view of Brisbane City, Moreton Bay Islands, Brisbane River and the mountain ranges. This two-hour hike up the Story Bridge will definitely have you working up a sweat but leave you feeling great and invigorated afterwards.

You can also go abseiling at the Kangaroo Points Cliff. This is a great way to kiss your fear of heights good-by and test your mettle. No? That’s okay, rather than going down the cliffs, you can go rock climbing instead.

Want to push yourself a little bit more? Why not try the Kangaroo Point stairs? These steep stairs will have you gasping for breath but is a surefire way to step up your workout routine.

Cycling is also a big part of Kangaroo Point and is a great way to stay fit. If you are staying with us at Bridgewater Terraces, you can find one of the CityCycle stations not too far away at the Story Bridge at Captain Burke Park. It’s a nice way to see Brisbane too.
