Davies Park, Brisbane 

For those joining us at Davies Park in Brisbane - choose between a leisurely and safe 3km, 5km or 10km course. Walkers on all courses will be supported by course marshals, volunteers and refreshment stations.

It’s a spectacular sight to witness the sea of lanterns as our 10km walkers stroll over the Go Between Bridge then along the bicentennial bike way towards the Botanic Gardens. After circling the lush gardens, walkers make their way across the Goodwill Bridge and back along the Southbank Promanade on their return to Davies Park.

The MS Moonlight Walk is the perfect event to enjoy time with family and friends and take in the views of the Brisbane city at night.
