The walk is a great way to get on the river and stay dry. amazing walk over the river but he real reward is the howard smith wharves at the end. Worth the walk and then enjoy a drink under the Storey Bridge

We usually park at New Farm Park and walk into the city and back. A great option is to combine the walk with a trip on the Ferry. There is a great little cafe near the ferry stop in the park.
