Positive and forward-thinking, generous and optimistic; Brisbane is Australia's new world city. Located on the east coast of Australia in the heart of one of the country's fastest growing regions, Brisbane is the capital of Queensland - a state well known for its natural beauty and world-class tourism attractions. Brisbane is a compact city with many walkways, paths and bikeways, which are well connected with bridges linking the major precincts.
MS Moonlight Walk
Join MS Queensland for their annual MS Moonlight Walk on Friday 20 October. This leisurely 5km or 10km walk is a great way to see the best the Brisbane River has to offer. Beginning at dusk, with lanterns in hand, walkers will walk along the illuminated Kangaroo Point Cliffs, cross the Story Bridge, through the lush Botanic Gardens before crossing the Goodwill Bridge to continue the fun with live music at South Bank.
