Seventeen Mile Rocks

Besides the existence of Eight Mile Plains in Brisbane’s Southern suburbs, there is also an area called Seventeen Mile Rocks. The name of this suburb was derived from the collection of rocks that formed a distance of 17 miles from that of the famous Brisbane River. These days, only a few of these rock collections can be seen since the place allowed access to more marine vessels. Nonetheless, there are still a lot of reasons to visit this place. You should also proceed to Rocks Riverside Park where you can enjoy cycling, a climbing web, a flying fox attraction, and more.
