"Kangaroo Point - an inner city sanctuary"

KP is one of the most underrated locality close to the city. Pubs, CBD, Southbank all walk distance, KP Cliffs is stunning. Great for the young up and coming professional or young families.

"close to river and the city"

Great access to the City of Brisbane and its River.We could live there and spend a week there at least once a year. The development of the area is all very well done and it has the Story Bridge Hotel,the city and Southbank nearby.

"Best Location In Brisbane"

Great if you like waterfront apartment living. Surrounded by water and parkland the city is a 5 minute ferry ride or 5 minutes over the bridge by car. Close enough to the city without the hustle and bustle. I have lived in the area for over ten years and have no plans to leave. Great places to eat out are Garnish Bistro, Deerys at the Story Bridge Pub, Cafe Dockside or Zio Mario's on the border with East Brisbane.

Best streets are Thorn, Scott and Goodwin to name a few.

"A perfect place to live....within minutes to Clem7, City, Cafes and hospitals."

Kangaroo Point in the perfect inner city hub, When Kangaroo Point is mentioned we immediately think of rhyolite cliffs.

These cliff formations were not formed by nature but by early mining and are now the major rock climbing attraction for Brisbane's abseilers. Kangaroo Point is also a popular spot for picnics, walking and cycling. Particularly popular is the walk under the Story Bridge to Dockside.

Once a working class area, Kangaroo Point is now home to expensive highrise developments, cafes and restaurants.

You can stroll the river walk ways, picinic in one of the many parks provided, eat at some of Brisbane's finest resturants and have the security of being minutes from Brisbane's best hospitals. Brisbane's CityCat and ferry service at your door, leave the car in your garage.

Soren Andersen Also .... the Story Bridge Hotel is a major attraction to the area. With both great atmosphere and good food. Whether it is for an evening out or for a Sunday jazz session it is definitely worth a try.

"Great views and wonderful location"

You may be lucky enough to afford a nice apartment with views in the kangaroo point if so im sure its a great view. Although Kangaroo point may not be in the right in the heart or nroth side or inner city of brisbane, it is blessed with having unrealistic views.

It faces the city directly so and night you get to see everything from the towers to Story Bridge (depending on your view). Great walkways to to take the dog or go for an early evening jog.

"High density living, close to the city of Brisbane"

Kangaroo Point is just over the Story Bridge from Brisbane, nestled on the Brisbane River. With the highest density living in Australia, it is jam packed with apartments, flats and units.

The area is a great spot for young professionals and students to be based. Rental accommodation is quite affordable, and access to the city of Brisbane is easy, with the area frequently serviced by bus, ferry and road.

There is also a huge range of recreational activities in the area, with steep cliffs for rock-climbing and abseiling and many bicycle paths.

The lifestyle in this suburb is very cosmopolitan, with a number of laidback pubs and cafes. Perfect for making the most of the glorious Queensland weather.

"This area is essentially a residential area with high rise apartment blocks and some housing."

Kangaroo Point is across the Brisbane River from the Brisbane city centre and in fact the Story Bridge crosses over at its peak. What have become so popular in this area are the new apartment blocks for city living. It is only a matter of crossing over the bridge, or catching the ferry and there you are in the centre of the city.

This would be a great place to live you are the busy executive. Live in a no maintenance situation and entertain overlooking Brisbane and Brisbane River. Qute a desirable situation.

At this point you can jump on the highway and head north or south to the beaches for your weekend relaxation.

For a miriad of restaurants you are only a stone's throw from Brisbane, or drop down to South Bank for some dining near the river.
