Why Kangaroo Point Is Still a Popular Accommodation Destination

Accommodation destinations in Brisbane are plentiful. While business travellers and normal holidaymakers choose Brisbane CBD for their accommodation, partygoers choose Fortitude Valley while those looking for more peace and relaxation choose South Bank.

However, I’ve said this before, and I still maintain, Kangaroo Point is one of the best accommodation destinations in Brisbane. While Kangaroo Point may not be as popular as Brisbane CBD, South Brisbane or Fortitude Valley, it does offer several benefits that make it a highly attractive destination.

So, continue reading on to discover just why you should consider Kangaroo Point accommodation over other options in Brisbane.

It boasts a fantastic central location

Kangaroo Point is just 1km away from the Brisbane CBD, borders Fortitude Valley and lies close to South Bank as well. It may be a suburb, but it is highly accessible. Kangaroo Point is just a 15-minute drive from the airport and is connected to the Brisbane CBD via the iconic Storey Bridge.

Also, Kangaroo Point lies on the banks of the Brisbane River. This means that you can easily catch a ferry to access different parts of Brisbane from Kangaroo Point.

Thanks to its wonderful central location and easy accessibility, Kangaroo Point accommodation is a better pick over other Brisbane destinations.

It offers plenty to see and do

Given that Kangaroo Point is located on the Brisbane River, there is plenty to see and do in the area. While you’ll get to enjoy majestic views of Brisbane city, you can also indulge in hiking and trailing the area. And, if you’re up for some adventure, you can go abseiling or rock climbing on the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

Apart from this, you can also take the Storey Bridge Climb to experience panoramic views of Brisbane – and might I add, this is located a mere 200 meters from Bridgewater Terraces. Other major outdoor attractions in Kangaroo Point include St. Mary’s Anglican Church, Ellis Street and the Yungaba Immigration Centre.

There are also several parks, cafes and gardens in and around Kangaroo Point where you can relax and have a leisurely time. By choosing Kangaroo Point accommodation, you’ll have plenty to see and do on your Brisbane holiday.

Another reason why Kangaroo Point is still a popular accommodation destination is due to the fact that it is much more peaceful than its surrounding areas of Brisbane CBD and Fortitude Valley. While these areas certainly contain several attractions, they are always crowded and full of people.

By choosing Kangaroo Point accommodation, you can enjoy a peaceful holiday away from the hustle bustle. Kangaroo Point offers picturesque views of the Brisbane River and is a calm and serene suburb with plenty of greenery. Best of all, you’ll still be close to all the action of the city even if you choose the peace of Kangaroo Point. You can always go shopping to the CBD or go for a party in Fortitude Valley and return to peaceful accommodation in Kangaroo Point.
