Picnic Places in Brisbane


Schedule your family to a picnic in any of the prime spots in Brisbane

and enjoy the day and fill it with laughter and chatter. It's a good thing

that Brisbane's greeneries have been preserved to perfection, giving people the perfect place to spend their day's worth of free time.
First in the list is the Rocks Riverside Parks, the largest riverfront park

in Brisbane. It is located by the Brisbane park River in Seventeen Mile Rocks, covering an area of 26 hectares. Barely four years old, was opened to the public in December 7, 2003. Before being a park, it was

the site of the former Queensland Cement Limited quarry.


The park features public art and a crop patch. Rocks have been an ideal picnic ground, offering shelters, lawns, gardens, electric barbeques, adventure playgrounds, pavilion, open spaces, even a community amphitheatre where visitors can watch local performers. It also includes the Crusher Pavilion wherein they can hold community or corporate functions.

Its reputation does reflect to the awards that it has received in the past years which include a 2003 Innovation Award from the Playground and

Recreational Association Award and a 2003 Built Environment Award from the Australian Institute of Project Management. Just across the Brisbane

Central District and opposite the Queensland University of Technology is the Kangaroo Point Cliff, another famous recreational spot and is close to the South Bank Parklands. The area is popular for its rock formations and has been a training ground for professional and amateur rock climbers alike.

Of course, the base of the cliff is a favorite picnic ground, having been equipped with electric barbecues, chairs, tables and toilets. The area also supplies a wonderful view of the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, mangroves and the buildings.

Formerly known as the Anzac Memorial park, is the Kalinga Park. Located in the north of Brisbane, the community park has been attracting visitors since 1910 and has been associated to the locality of Kalinga which is in the suburbs of Clayfield and Wooloowin. The emergence of facilities has transformed the place into a cozy picnic area, having had tennis courts, ovals, open fields and a miniature car racing circuits, definitely an attraction that a group getaway would definitely enjoy. The place is also equipped with bicycle and walking tracks, as well as the ever-popular electric barbecue areas and children's playgrounds.

Don't forget to visit these other favorite picnic places: Roma Street Parkland, which is only a short walk from Brisbane's Queen Street Mall, Wellington Point, which features the views to the islands of Moreton Bay, the Pelican Park where you can also have the enjoyment of feeding cute pelicans and the

Mt. Nebo Road where you can enjoy picnic in the hills.
