Wynnum to Manly Foreshore Walk

Manly Boat Harbour

With school holidays coming up, it’s always a good idea to have a few interesting walks planned, to get rid of all of that excess energy!

One of our favourites is the foreshore walk between Wynnum and Manly. It’s about 4.5km one way with a smooth path suitable for strollers and scooters. There are plenty of playgrounds on the way along with picnic shelters.

At the Wynnum end, the shady playground near the Wynnum Jetty is great for kids of all ages and there are cafes and takeaways opposite. It might still be a bit chilly, but the Wynnum wading pool is a great places to cool down if we get one of those hot mid-spring days.

Manly Playground

The Manly end of the walk has a public swimming pool, a big playground with picnic shelters and plenty of cafes along Cambridge Parade. There are also markets on Sundays. Children will enjoy a stroll out onto the William Gunn Jetty to see people trying their luck with a fishing line, and yachts coming and going from the marina. The cafe on the jetty has great views of the action.

Do you have any favourite walks for kids in Brisbane?

  1. What a great walk! Nothing better than getting a tribe of kids out together in the holidays. We love that walk and bike path northern side of the Brisbane River along near New Farm Park and the Powerhouse – so much to see, including a great food market on the weekends and boats and ferries on the river.

  2. This is my backyard and I love that walk. Thanks, I am inspired to do that walk today and will even finish it with some of those unbeatable fish and chips.

  3. Hi – You’re very lucky to live in the Wynnum/Manly area. It’s a beautiful part of Brisbane and so relaxed. I always feel like I’m on holidays when we go for a walk or ride along the foreshore…..Dianne
