TOP PARKS TO VISIT THESE WINTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

 

Explore the outdoors these winter holidays with the wide variety of parks that Brisbane has to offer. From northside to southside and beyond, Brisbane provides an endless range of outdoor activities and sceneries for both family outings or those looking for an escape from day-to-day life. Here we have discovered the top three parks in Brisbane that we believe to be the hit spots to venture to on your winter holidays this year.

 

1.     KANGAROO POINT CLIFFS/RIVER TERRACE PARK


Starting strong with a local favourite we have the Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park. This inner-city park lies along the Brisbane River right across from the Brisbane CBD, with easy access to the park by ferry or a 10-minute drive over the Story Bridge. It features the iconic Kangaroo Point Cliffs, whose height is used for activities such as abseiling, and provides unforgettable views of Brisbane's city skyline. Further along the cliffside you can find Joey’s café, an amphitheatre, play area with climbing facilities, barbecue and picnic spots, with general seating lined along the cliffside. Those after activities closer to the water can venture down to the base of the cliffs to find a canoe ramp, more parklands, and an expansive boardwalk along the river. For those that cannot get enough of this area, the new development by Pikos Group titled ‘Gaia’ is the property to look out for. This two-tower apartment development will reside only a 14 minute walk away from the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, serving as the perfect place for those looking for minimal travel time and those with a love for the outdoors.

 


2.     MOUNT COO-THA BOTANICAL GARDENS

Next on our list is Brisbane landmark, Mount Coo-tha Botanic Gardens. Noted as Queensland’s premier subtropical botanic gardens, the Botanic Gardens are the perfect choice for those wanting to get away from the hustle and routine of daily life. Visitors can enjoy botanic displays, food and drink outlets, picnic areas/shelters, a playground, and an auditorium all free to use from 8am – 6pm during Summer (September to March) and 8am – 5pm during Winter (April to August). For those wanting to adventure out even further they can also find Mount Coo-tha’s Summit Lookout, planetarium, botanic gardens, nature trails and hikes, and café, plus more. If you love this area and are wanting a new place to stay, then look no further than the townhouse complex ‘Treetops’ in Kenmore. Only a 17 minute drive from Mount Coo-tha, this townhouse complex is the ideal spot for those looking for a modern but quaint living style.



3.     YIMBUN PARK

The final holiday area on our list is Yimbun Park located in Brisbane’s southside suburb of Sunnybank. This hidden gem is known to the locals for its expansive green space, dog park (off-leash for small dogs), picnic area, playground, table tennis tables, and chess tables. However, what makes this park stand out is the local food and drink vans serving coffee and doughnuts all throughout the week, a change from the usual café scenery. With its central location, Yimbun Park sits a 14 minute walk to Sunnybank’s Market Square district and a 7 minute drive to Westfield Mount Gravatt, as well as in close proximity to southside suburbs of Eight Mile Plains, Macgregor, and Rochedale. Those looking to reside in this area can look at Citrine Townhomes in Rochedale. This townhouse complex features luxury, quality, and home technology with premium, resort style amenities, serving as the ideal area for those looking for a quiet yet indulgent lifestyle.
