Prime Picnic Spots intro plugEverybody loves a picnic and there are plenty of prime picnic spots to enjoy in and around Brisbane Backpacker Hostel. Nothing is better on a hot day than having lunch beside cool water, with the majority of our city’s favourite picnic spots being next to the Brisbane River, the choices are endless. But if you don’t want manicured grass and an urban park, then head to a picnic site surrounded by forest, tall trees and views. So spread out the picnic rug, unpack goodies to eat and breathe in the fresh air at some of the top spots around Brisbane Backpacker Hostel Somewhere to Stay.

Kangaroo Point cliffsKANGAROO POINT CLIFFS

There are two options here – the top of the cliffs at the Kangaroo Point Park that opened in early 2010 or take the steps down to the picnic and BBQ areas right on the river.

Either way, you’ll have some of the city’s best views of the skyline plus everything you need for a perfect picnic gathering.

If packing a hamper isn’t your thing, then buy your lunch from the Cliffs Café.

City Botanic Gardens


Nestled beside the QUT campus and surrounded by the Brisbane River, the Botanic Gardens have changed from their historic beginnings of a zoo and convict garden.

These days, it is a popular spot for large gatherings and wedding photos. Areas can be booked for functions.

There are a few shelters and toilets but no barbecues provided. There isn’t a café on the grounds anymore but you can buy takeaway food from stores along Albert Street, heading up to the Queen Street Mall.
