Here are some directions and routes to some special must-see places in and around Brisbane:
Cycle to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
(ride takes between 1 and 2 hours to get there, depending on stamina and experience)
When you get to the railway line at the very end of Lambert Road, walk through the rail underpass and cross busy Coonan Street, go left towards William Taylor Bridge to Riverview Tee on your right. This road is quite narrow but has little traffic. There is a narrow separated footpath on the left that you can cycle along if you prefer. Bear left into Radnor St. and follow into Witton Rd.
Take a left into Kate St. which leads into Jerrang St., left intoJainba St. which leads into Jilba St. and lastly left into Jesmond St. Follow this some way to the entrance to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, this section is 4.7 km. Return the same way to Lambert Road to resume the main itinerary.
Ride or ferry to Bretts Wharf, cross at traffic lights and turn left at Racecourse Rd. to the end. Left into Lancaster Rd., right at lights into Kitchener Rd. which continues into Zillman Rd. to the end, left into Gellibrand St. and right into Widdop St. You will go under the highway and immediatly cross over Schultz Canal. The cycle path runs along the Schultz Canal for some kilometres before coming out on Nudgee Beach Road. Turn right here following the path, cross over the road and continue to the entrance to the Boondall Wetlands. Through the Wetlands and out the other side, pass under the highway twice, past the Entertainment Centre sogn to the rail line, right under the roadway and past the Rail Station on your left. This is now really a case of following the obvious through Curlew Park and onto Cabbage Tree Creek and the waterfront of Sandgate. Follow this to the old Hornibrook HIghway Bridge, (duck your head and walk under the Houghton Highway Bridge to get there) and over to the Redcliffe Peninsular. Follow the cycle pathways along the beach front with only a couple of headland deviations all the way to Scarborough Boat Harbour and a great choice of fresh seafood.
