The 2021 MS Moonlight Walk starts from Davies Park, West End and follows a 3km, 5km or 10km walk around the Brisbane River, before returning to the finish line at Davies Park. These courses are designed to be relaxing and safe, encouraging people of all ages and fitness levels to take part, whilst enjoying the novelty of a night-time sky! All three courses will be sign posted and there will be event marshals on major corners.
Wander along the Brisbane River, over the Go Between Bridge and along the northern side of the Brisbane River towards the Botanic Gardens.
Witness the illuminated Story Bridge as you loop through the Gardens, circling back to cross the river over the Goodwill Bridge heading back through Southbank. Meander along the Riverside back past the Brisbane Wheel , returning to Davies Park in West End.
There are two refreshment stations you pass by twice, one at Kurilpa Point Park and one at the Goodwill Bridge, near the Botanic Gardens.
This course is wheelchair friendly and starts at Davies Park, following the Brisbane River along Riverside Drive to the first refreshment station at Kurilpa Point Park. From here you will walk along the South Bank Boardwalk, where you will loop past the Brisbane Wheel and return via a similar route, including via the Kurilpa Point Park refreshment station to Davies Park.
This course is wheelchair friendly and on departing Davies Park, follows the River along Riverside Drive, under the Go Between Bridge to the refreshment station at Kurilpa Point Park which is the turnaround point for the 3km walk. From here, participants will return via the same route to Davies Park and the finish line.
