 This is an interesting walk from Yeronga Station to the City and up to New Farm.
 
The main purpose of the walk is do the Neville Bonner Bridge as part of the walk. The Neville Bonner Bridge was completed last year but it wasn’t opened to the public  as the Casino precinct not completed. The bridge is supposed to be open on the 29th August this year but I am still very sceptical whether it will be opened on that date as the date has been put back several times.  Presumably the bridge will be open by the 26th October 2024 and I have “locked in” that date
 
The route is from Yeronga Station, up Fairfield Rd into Hyde St, then along Cansdale St, along the Corso, over the Green Bridge, through the Uni of Qld, we then catch the CityCat to West End, then walk along Riverside Dr to Southbank, and across the new Neville Bonner Bridge, through the Gardens and ‘check out’ the under construction Kangaroo Point ridge. For the keen ones we will continue walking along the Riverwalk to the Sydney Street New Farm Terminal then catch the city cat ferry back under the bridges to Southbank. It is fairly long walk so wear good walking shoes..
 
Of note, there is some walking through suburban streets. Bring the usual daywalk stuff, plus at least 2 litres of water. Bring food for lunch and morning tea.
