Kangaroo Point is a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia located directly east across the Brisbane River from the Brisbane CBD.
Due to its close proximity to the Brisbane CBD and its beautiful riverside location, the area is popular for short stays in Brisbane. Kangaroo Point holiday apartments range from basic holiday accommodation through to luxury resorts.
The area is also home to many luxury apartment buildings for residential use. Although the area once featured a number of prominent river front homes, these have generally made way for apartment complexes.
There are plenty of great places to wine and dine in the area, due to the large and diverse range of restaurants in Kangaroo Point. There is everything from fine dining to fast food.
Kangaroo Point is a popular recreation spot, conveniently close to the city and the South Bank Parklands.
The Kangaroo Point Cliffs are situated on the Brisbane River, directly across from the city botanical gardens which border the CBD.
The cliffs are a popular picnic, rock climbing and abseiling site. The steepness of the cliffs was emphasised by quarrying operations which mined the volcanic rock and lava flows which form the cliffs. These lavas flowed about 30 million years ago and filled up an ancient river valley. They currently form the banks of the mighty Brisbane River.
Although rock climbing at Kangaroo Point has a great safety track record, it's probably not a bad idea to get some life insurance in place before you decide to engage in dangerous activities like this!
The Story Bridge is a prominent landmark, and is one of the main focal points of the annual River Fire celebrations. Directly under the bridge is the Story Bridge Hotel which is one of Brisbane's best venues for drinking and socialising.
