Location: Brisbane, Australia
Removed from the hustle and bustle of the Brisbane CBD, but only a stones throw away from all the action, Kangaroo Point is Brisbane’s latest cosmopolitan hub. Located only 1.3kms, or 5 minutes, from the city centre, Kangaroo Point combines picturesque natural beauty with rich urban culture, with an abundance of leisure, dining and cultural activities at its doorstep.
With its dual access to the CBD, including the Story Bridge providing both vehicular and pedestrian access, as well as the ferry terminal and bus way station, Kangaroo Point is conveniently positioned for both work and play. And for those wanting to take in the city skyline, without crossing the river, Kangaroo Point also has unmatched panoramic views of Brisbane city from atop the Kangaroo Point cliff.
Experience a high quality of life at Kangaroo Point, where work and play fit harmoniously together to create the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed. Wake up to breathtaking views of the Brisbane River, and then start your day by getting the blood pumping along one of the many nearby walking and bike tracks.
Pound the pavement along the banks of the Brisbane River, or enjoy the sights by bicycle along the Kangaroo Point Bikeway, which joins up to the Goodwill Bridge at Southbank, giving you access to Queensland University of Technology Garden Point Campus and the CBD.
Getting the kids to school doesn’t have to be a chore with a wide range of excellent schools close by, including Somerville House School, Churchie, Brisbane Grammar School and All Hallow’s.
After the morning activities or on your way to work, why not treat yourself to a latté and some poached eggs on toast at one of the many wonderful cafes in Kangaroo Point or nearby South Bank Promenade, before an easy transit into the CBD.
Spend your weekend days exploring the many fun and cultural activities in and around Kangaroo Point and the CBD, which are all easily accessible via foot or the city’s bus, train and ferry network.
Expend some energy and work up an appetite before lunch by trying your hand at one of the many adventure activities on offer, including rock climbing or abseiling the Kangaroo Point Cliffs or enjoying a leisurely kayak or stand up paddle board along the Brisbane River. For the ultimate Brisbane adventure experience, don’t miss the famous Story Bridge Adventure climb that draws local, interstate and international visitors alike.
Bask in the glorious Queensland sunshine, while you refuel with lunch in South Bank Parklands. The 42-hectare site is separated into three main precincts – the open Parklands including Streets Beach and the Wheel of Brisbane; the revered retail and dining street, Little Stanley; and the Grey Street cultural boulevard including the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Queensland Art Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art and the State Library of Queensland.
Sporting fans can scream their lungs out at the Gabba Cricket Grounds, Brisbane’s major sporting centre, home of the Brisbane Lions and the Queensland Bulls. Not into bat and ball games? Then shop to your heart’s content at Westfield Carindale, only 15 minutes from Kangaroo Point, containing over 300 specialty retailers, dining and entertainment, including a state of the art cinema complex.
Nothing beats the cosmopolitan city of Brisbane at night; with the balmy nights meaning you can enjoy all the city has to offer long after the sun goes down. Start your night off with a drink at the Logan Road Dining Precinct, often referred to as the French Quarter of Brisbane for its many funky bars, restaurants and boutiques.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to world-class dining, with Kangaroo Point claiming two of Brisbane’s most famous pubs – The Story Bridge Hotel and the Pineapple Hotel. Both Hotels have long-held reputations as being amongst the finest steak restaurants in Brisbane. For something a little more refined take a short ferry ride to one of Brisbane’s finest restaurants, including Aria, The Stokehouse and Cha Cha Char.
Feel like something more intimate? Then pack a picnic dinner and a bottle of champagne and head to the beautiful Kangaroo Point Park, home to a sculpture park through which to explore, and lengthy riverfront boardwalk.
Finish your day off watching the sunset or enjoying the stars and city lights from Upper River Terrace, sitting atop the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, with panoramic views across Brisbane River to the CBD.
