Brisbane’s Best Mobility Scooter Friendly Scenic Walks

mobility scooter walks



Brisbane has many awesome scenic walks but often they’re not manageable for people who are using a mobility scooter or wheelchair. But we’ve done our homework and found a selection of accessible walks so that these folk can enjoy the great outdoors too.

Using a mobility scooter is a great way to get around if you or a loved one has difficulty with walking. Check out our mobility scooters for long or short term rent.

Shorncliffe to Sandgate Foreshore

Shorncliffe is around a 30-minute drive north of Brisbane CBD, and the flat, wide paths hugging the foreshore are ideal for mobility scooters and make for an invigorating ride in the fresh air. The distance from Shorncliffe to Sandgate is approximately 2km which is very doable in a mobility scooter. Highlights are picturesque Queenslander houses and a variety of wading birds when the tide is out. There are plenty of cafes and also a fish-and-chip shop along the foreshore.

Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve

Tinchi Tamba makes a great excursion for anyone with a mobility scooter, who loves nature. This reserve is also just half an hour’s drive north of Brisbane and 15 minutes from Shorncliffe. So you could logistically combine the two walks in one day. It features two well-maintained tracks, one a boardwalk over wetlands, and the other which goes to a bird watching hide on the river. Take your own snacks and bottled water.

New Farm Park

Stockard Creek Circuit at Koala Bushlands

This is a lovely scenic area around a half hour drive south of Brisbane CBD. The 1.4 km walk is through open Eucalypt forest and features a smooth track with a boardwalk section, so it’s ideal for mobility scooters. The walk starts at the Visitor Centre which has an interactive wildlife information wall and toilet facilities. Stop for a snack break at the viewing platform over the creek and don’t forget to keep a lookout for koalas in the trees above you.

Teneriffe to New Farm

Finally for something closer to home, this inner city Brisbane walk is a pleasant ride for a mobility scooter along the river between Teneriffe and New Farm. It’s a 2.2 km stretch with plenty of interesting diversions including CityCats coming and going along the river, historic woolsheds, a musical conch sculpture and a marble car. Finish your ride at the Powerhouse where you can enjoy a coffee.
