The Brisbane river tours start and end at West End where there is easy access to the river and plenty of free car parking available.
There is something uniquely exhilarating about the fresh air and freedom of an evening paddle, and Brisbane River is the perfect place to do it. The city transforms into a kaleidoscope of colourful lights and landmarks, and you’ll have the best view from your kayak.
Setting off from West End Riverside Drive Pontoon, your evening kayak tour will begin with a safety briefing and instructions for any rookie paddlers. Luckily, kayaking is easy to pick up, so even rookies will be gliding through the water in no time. The 1.5 hour tour will be led by the expert owner and operator, who will take you on a spectacular sightseeing path through Brisbane River.
Paddle under the ever-changing colours of the Victoria Bridge, past the colonial facade of the Treasury Casino, and on towards the Maritime Museum. Watch the hundreds of lights of Brisbane Wheel spinning round and round, and the people strolling along the South Bank waterfront promenade. Brisbane is beautiful at night and there will be plenty of photo opportunities during your exciting evening kayak through the city and back. It’s the perfect opportunity to get active, get your blood pumping, and get the best views of Brisbane.
