Where are Brisbane’s BEST BBQ Spots?
It’s a question for the ages, isn’t it? Everyone’s got their favourite haunt to hang around a hotplate. We’ve got it on good authority that these are the very best of the best when it comes to choosing a great place to hang out and stave off that hunger while the kids run amock. Read on to find out more…
Brisbane’s best BBQ spots – North of the river
New Farm Park
Brunswick Street, New Farm
There are barbeques at either end of New Farm Park that are always very popular. Spread out a picnic blanket and get partying! There’s also FREE WIFI which means you’ll be able to play music and the kids can use Snapchat to their heart’s content without destroying your data. Score!
J.C Slaughter Falls
Mt Coot-tha Road, Mt Coot-tha
This entire area is divine but we particularly love to picnic in the J.C Slaughter Falls area. There are wood-fired barbeques here found in the carpark area as well as lots of places to relax and unwind. Make sure you click through on our link above to find out all about the nature walks in the area.
Redcliffe Parade, Redcliffe
This is a peaceful, idyllic spot and one of Brisbane’s best BBQ spots. This is relatively new so comes with a sparkly clean veneer but can be very popular, particularly on warmer days out and during the school holidays. Get in quick!
Brisbane’s best BBQ spots – South of the river
Kangaroo Point Cliffs
Llewellyn Street, Kangaroo Point
This premium BBQ spot offers the most spectacular views from the Botanic Gardens all the way down to Eagle Street Pier. There are a number of gas BBQs and picnic spots in this area but be warned – this can get crowded. Your best bet is to get in early to snag (get it?) both a BBQ and a parking spot.
Captain Burke Park
Holman Street, Kangaroo Point
Captain Burke Park is a hidden little gem nestled in almost under the Story Bridge complete with playground and tidal beach. Great views for boat-spotters under the shade of a number of trees and our magnificent bridge. Parking is somewhat limited down here so again, your best bet is to get in early.
We LOVE Captain Burke Park!
High End Terrace, West End
This is a large expanse of parkland that’s perfect for those needing some space from the maddening crowds. Lots of space for kids to run out the wiggles, to have a family game of cricket or to stretch out under a shady tree. You’ll find the barbeque areas up on the Hill End Terrace side.
