What Is There To See And Do At Kangaroo Cliffs?

One of the most popular recreational spots in Australia, the Kangaroo Cliffs is located at Kangaroo Point on the Eastern bank of the Brisbane River. Convicts mining for volcanic rocks created the cliffs; these stones were used by Captain Patrick Logan to build the Commissariat Store and The Old Windmill.

 Kangaroo CliffsWhy you should visit the Kangaroo Cliffs?

The Kangaroo Cliffs are not only one of the few places in the world where you can do some rock climbing, but also a perfect location to admire the magnificent views of Brisbane’s city-centre. Although the cliffs are considered a place for recreational climbing, take note that, with almost 400 routes available, they offer excellent opportunities for all skill levels. In fact, they are the main training grounds for the South East Queensland rock climbers.

In addition to abseiling, the Kangaroo Cliffs feature an amazing strip of parkland, at the base and right beside the Brisbane River. The small park features numerous facilities and services, including electric barbecues. Therefore, you and your friends can enjoy a nice relaxing picnic after an exhausting day of rock climbing. Then again, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can decide to have lunch at the top of the cliffs in the recently opened Scott Park.

The Kangaroo Cliffs also constitute an excellent location for geology enthusiasts. These magnificent cliffs comprising of pyroclastic rocks and lava are currently known as the Brisbane tuff.

Opening hours and prices

As long as they bring their equipment along, experienced rock climbers can escalate the cliffs whenever they want, free of charge. Take note that climbing the Kangaroo Cliffs doesn’t require making reservations in advance and it works on the first come, first served principle. However, if you’re new to climbing or if you want to make the most of your abseiling experience, then you should contact an operator who is offering climbing services.

 Kangaroo CliffsLocation and travelling there

The Kangaroo Cliffs are located on the Lower River Terrace, Kangaroo Point, Queensland. Even though there is no direct link to the site, take note that you have several public transportation options available. By taking the bus, train or ferry, you should expect a brief 10-minute walk to the base of the cliffs. In the event when your group is in Brisbane for a short period and you want to make the most of your time, then you should consider hiring a coach.
