Kangaroo Point is a popular recreation spot, conveniently close to the city and the South Bank Parklands. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs, situated on the east bank of the city bend of the Brisbane River north of the Maritime Museum, opposite Riverstage and the Queensland University of Technology at Gardens Point. The Look-out at Kangaroo Point is also included as one of the stops of the Brisbane City Council's City Sights bus service. Kangaroo Point is also home to Ellis Street, one of the steepest hills in Brisbane according to Brisbane City Council.
The cliffs are a popular picnic, rock climbing and abseiling site. The steepness of the cliffs was increased by quarrying operations which mined the volcanic rock or rhyolite lava flows which form the cliffs. These lavas were deposited in the Triassic Period about 230 million years ago and filled up an ancient river valley.
At night the cliffs light up and the area is a great space for a sensory exploration of the rock face. Great location to have your child to explore with their hands.
