About the project

Council encourages active transport and is committed to providing residents and visitors with travel options that are quicker and safer. The Indooroopilly Riverwalk provides a high quality, separated two-way cyclist and pedestrian riverwalk that takes advantage of the outlook over the Brisbane River. 

The riverwalk significantly improves active transport through the area, by providing a safe and accessible route from Twigg Street to the Jack Pesch Bridge and the Indooroopilly Rail Station, with additional connections to Radnor Street and Riverview Terrace. 

The new Riverwalk, including adjoining pathways, is 790 metres long.

The Indooroopilly Riverwalk is a critical part of a future active transport corridor between the Western Freeway Bikeway and the University of Queensland.

From the viewing platform along the new riverwalk, residents and visitors have access to the views of the Brisbane River and the iconic Walter Taylor Bridge.
