Kayak Eco Adventure Tours
Paddle along the Brisbane River from New Farm's new river hub.
It's the winding brown snake that Brisbanites see every day. We drive over it, we speed along it in CityCats, and we stare at it from bars and restaurants. Fancy paddling your way through it, too? Even better — fancy hitting the water for $5?
With New Farm Park now home to the New Farm Park River Hub, cruising the river recreationally has become a whole lot easier. That's one of the main ideas behind the new addition — aka encouraging folks to kayak, canoe and stand-up paddleboard their way along the waterway. And to celebrate that fact, Brisbane City Council is joining forces with Vertec Adventure to host 90-minute-long Kayak Eco Adventure tours that won't drain your wallet.
Bookings are essential; however for $5 per person, you can get paddling in a two-seat kayak as part of a guided experience. All kayaking and safety equipment is provided.
Sessions run at 8am and 9.30am on Sunday, December 8. If you're feeling hungry afterwards, Mary Mae's beneath Brisbane Powerhouse is doing hampers from $25 filled with fruit, cured meats, cheese and crackers.
BCC is hosting other sessions up and down the river between now and April, too — keep an eye on the website for further details.
