Kangaroo Pt & Eagle St Pier Markets Walk

  • Sep 22, 2013 · 10:15 AM
  • Brisbane Maritime Museum

About The Walk

Our walk will start from the entrance to the Maritime Museum at South Bank. Desley and I will go by train to South Bank Station in one of the carriages towards the front of the  train that goes through Coomera at 9.10 AM (It leaves Varsity Lakes at 8.48 AM, Robina at 8.53 , Nerang 8.59, Helensvale 9.04) It arrives at South Bank at 10.00 AM, running express most of the way. (It's an air train)

Starting from the Maritime Museum we will walk along the Kangaroo Point reach of the River  heading towards Thornton Street. We'll have our picnic lunch in one of the many little seating areas along that part of the riverside walk. We'll then walk through the pedestrian subway and up the little hill to the footpath over the Story Bridge. Once across the Bridge we take the footpath down to the Eagle Street Pier Sunday Markets.

From the markets we'll walk back through the Botanic Gardens and across the Goodwill Bridge heading back to South Bank station for the 4.00 pm train.

The total walk distance is about 5.5 Klm of easy walking, mostly pretty flat on well made paths.

About Eagle St Sunday Markets at the Pier

A popular attraction with both locals and tourists for over 22 years, the vibrant riverside markets are held every Sunday at Brisbane's famous waterfront precinct, Eagle Street Pier.

As you browse the dozens of stalls at the 'Riverside at the Pier' markets you'll find an eclectic range of quality hand-made arts and crafts, gifts, clothing and jewellery.  This along with a colourful mix of street entertainers, the markets are the perfect destination for a relaxing day by the river.

What to Bring

Your lunch, hat, comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, water and a sense of adventure.
