Remembering the shipbuilders of Brisbane Waters

I don’t know if this walk is officially named but it’s a magnificent stroll around the Kincumber Broadwater.

The path appears to be dedicated the the early boatbuilders of the area because there are plaques and monuments along the way giving details to the pioneers of industry. At the start of the walk is a wharf creatively built to resemble the bow of a boat.

The walk itself follows the waters edge for the most part at times moving away to avoid the swampy mudflats. It is a smooth concreted pathway suitable for easy walking and cycling and we were passed a number of times by cyclists enjoying the route.

Opposite the foreshore you walk past lovely residential properties some of which are making full use of the area by extending their landscaping to the waters edge.
The return trip is a little over 6 kilometres and if you can manage an additional few meters you can do what we did and stop for a coffee at the Davidson RSL Club before turning back.

This is a great walk and I will be doing it again soon. Next time I’ll take the dog and a few more photos.
