BRISBANE RIVER CRUISE
Launch- Canoe Pontoon Orleigh Park or Launching Ramp Riverside Drive Tide- 8.06 AM
2.32m Suitable for – Motor Sail Paddle
Our plan is launch at West End or South Brisbane, for a 9.00 start and head downstream on
the Milton reach and Town reach for a morning tea break at South Bank Parklands while
secure on the pontoons and then proceed to the public pontoons at the gardens in the city,
More details on launching for this event. If you are launching a canoe use the canoe
launching pontoon in Orleigh Park at the end of Montague Road West End. If you are
launching a craft from a trailer you have two options the first being the ramp at the South
Brisbane Sailing Club, If you intend to launch here you will find an orange gate across the
road into the sailing club, this is kept closed but not locked and may be opened for access to
the ramp. No boat and trailer parking spaces are provided, however car spaces are available
just outside the club so if you are happy to separate the car and trailer no problem.
The second option is the launching ramp on riverside drive where 15 car and trailer spaces
are provided to get to this ramp you proceed about half way along Montague Road and turn
right at Jane Street down to Riverside Drive , turn right again until you come to the ramp.
Traffic may be heavy around Jane Street as a Market is held there every Saturday Morning,
Hope this is helpful if you are going to attend. Ring Darrell if attending please.
