KANGAROO POINT

Get to know
the area

Renowned for its pubs and vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle, Kangaroo Point is a favourite recreational hub on an inner-city peninsula. Compact in size yet generous in culture, this young-at - heart suburb is city and island living wrapped up into one.

Lifestyle

Bounded by water on three sides, Kangaroo Point is a narrow peninsula which pushes into the Brisbane River. The area boasts some of Brisbane's best views – across to the city and, most notably, the iconic Story Bridge.

With its waterside location comes an inherently active lifestyle. Much of the riverbank is dedicated to public parks, running tracks, bike trails and venues for recreational activities. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs attract locals and visitors and there are adventurous cliff-side abseiling programs and kayaking tours along the river. Many fitness buffs favour the nearby (and notorious) Kangaroo Point Stairs for their daily challenge.

Kangaroo Point's thriving social activity is at its peak in the local brewing institutions – The Story Bridge Hotel and The Pineapple Hotel have longstanding reputations as the best sports bars in Brisbane. Situated close to the Gabba, these venues are packed come game days.

Venues take advantage of the warm climate and unique views – a handful of cafés and bars are lucky enough to look straight onto the Story Bridge or the night lights of the city. The area is overwhelmed with Brisbanites coming from all over for the annual Riverfire event – it's the ideal locality to experience the fireworks on the Brisbane River bridges and CBD high-rise rooftops.
