Today we have rented bikes from Brisbane’s public bike sharing CityCycle and I took the girls on a tour to explore the inner city of Brisbane. This is an absolutely perfect possibility to see the city and enjoy great views, as the Brisbane River is flowing through all of the main areas and the bikepaths on its sides are perfectly linking everything together.
We started our tour at Fortitude Valley this morning and entered the City Reach Boardwalk from there. This path is build directly next to the River and offers you amazing views at the Story Bridge. We had brunch at one of the waterside cafés at Eagle Pier, where the Boardwalk is going past and proceeded to the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens. From there we took a turn through the city and crossed a bridge over the river, to ride through the South Bank Parklands.
After looking at the Rainforest Walk and the Nepalese Peace Pagoda for a bit we gave back our bikes to enjoy the rest of the day tanning at the beach of the South Bank Lagoon.
