The number one spot for a romantic evening walk, with stunning views - this makes a great addition to any date or just a great place for a wander and a long talk. The underappreciated City Reach Boardwalk runs all the way from the City Botanic Gardens (a great starting point and a lovely place in its own right) along the river, meeting with popular restaurants in the Eagle Street and Riverside precincts, and continues right to the foot of the Story Bridge.
The city lights and views of the bridge across the river make it a beautiful and atmospheric stroll, and there are plenty of quiet spots to stop and take in the view along the way - perfect for photo opportunities, selfies, or a stolen kiss! While there are restaurants dotted along the riverfront, the boardwalk is still quiet enough to feel romantic and intimate, making it a great alternative to more crowded areas around South Bank.
The boardwalk is 1.3km long in total, but there are plenty of spots to start or stop your walk, making it as long or short as you'd like it to be (and the restaurants and bars along the way give you plenty of places to stop in for a drink or a meal).
