We are spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning scenery in our region. We have tried, however, to pick just 5 of the best places for a picnic in Brisbane. Here are our favourites:

City Botanic Gardens, access from the Goodwill Bridge, Alice Street or George Street

A delight for the senses, the beautiful Botanic Gardens are a gardener’s dream…and you won’t hear the rest of the family complaining either. Toilet facilities, a great playground and a lovely little café make this one of the city’s best picnic spots, away from the hustle and bustle.

Kangaroo Point Cliffs Parklands, Main Street, Kangaroo Point

The cliffs are a popular spot for rock climbers and abseilers, but you can take it much easier in the parkland below the cliffs. With views out to the river, take a walk among the sculptures. There are also toilets and BBQ stations.

Wellington Point

A lovely seaside town with lots of picnic spots to choose from. Sit by the water’s edge or walk along the jetty to find a secluded spot. At low tide you can walk out to King Island to survey the pretty town from afar.

Pelican Park, Thomas Street, Clontarf

Set on the water, with great play areas for the kids, toilets, BBQ stations and a bike park, bring your picnic rug and set up camp for the day. If you hadn’t guessed, you might spot a pelican or two!

Whites Hill Reserve, Boundary Road, Camp Hill

Enjoy a bush walk and take in the views of the city before enjoying a picnic nestled among the trees and wildlife. There are also BBQ stations and play areas to keep the kids entertained, or bring your soccer ball or cricket set and enjoy a game on one of the sporting fields.
