Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighbourhood is adjacent to the Brisbane River with trees and parks. It is a vibrant, creative area a popular Brisbane cafe scene. Our house is opposite the river and park, so in the quieter part of the neighbourhood, with many cafes, restaurants and bars a short distance. The river catamaran and bus stops are one minute walk and bike/ jogging paths run through the riverside park all the way into the city and beyond. There is a good alfresco style cafe 1 minute walk along the river for morning coffee and breakfast ( which also opens as a bar some evenings). There are several local markets. A food and craft market on Saturdays which is by the river where I buy my fresh food for the week and listen to the live music with a good cup of coffee. There is another good market open all weekend which has food stalls , live music, a bar and excellent individual crafts. There are two local 50m pools, yoga/ pilates centres, massage, Aikido/ karate, indoor rock climbing and gyms.
