Course Information

The 2018 MS Moonlight Walk starts from the Cultural Forecourt at South Bank Parklands, and follows a 5km or 10km walk around the Brisbane River, before returning to the finish line at South Bank. 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! Both the 5km and 10km courses will be sign posted and there will be event marshals on major corners.

5km Walk
