Check out South Bank and the Brisbane Wheel from the water, cross underneath Brisbane’s many bridges and soak up the many sights.

Take it a step further by getting along to the West End Canoe Club. Paddlers meet at South Brisbane Sailing Club at Hill End Terrace, West End, for an early morning workout followed by breakfast at the West End Park Cafe.

The riverfront equipment includes a range of strength and conditioning machines under shade cover and located right next to the Brisbane River.

Rowing: It’s quintessential Brisbane – early morning rowers gliding along the inner-city reaches of the river, a graceful counterpoint to the growing buzz of the CBD.

With two clubs based at West End, along with Rowing Queensland, the suburb can lay claim to a veritable nautical mile of tradition with the sport.

Commerical Rowing Club is based at Davies Park in Jane Street, while home for Brisbane and GPS is Hill End Terrace.

Dancing: West End is spoilt for choice when it comes to dance classes, which is apt for a suburb home to the Queensland Ballet in Beesley Street.

QB offers a range of classes such as its heart-pumping jazz, contemporary and fitness sessions. You can also put your best foot forward to classes that offer a foundation in ballet, through to barre and centre exercises.

A host of other dance schools ply their trade at West End too, from Latin to ballroom and swing.

Cycling: With an extensive network of dedicated cycling paths from the Peninsula to the CBD and beyond, bike riding is well catered for.

Even before sun-up, the local roads and bikeways are lined with lycra. West End is right next to the heart of it all, with the River Loop arguably the most popular in Brisbane for social and training rides.

BOATS, BIKES AND BUSES ABOUND

By bus, bike or boat, getting around West End and beyond is a breeze. From the whimsical Green Cabs to the beloved Brisbane River ferries, Montague Markets & Residences is ideally located to take advantage of it all.

And on top of it all, walking is also a good option for many with Brisbane CBD just 3kms away.

By bus: Well catered for with buses, West Enders have exceptional choice from regular services to the high-frequency CityGliders which travel between the West End and Teneriffe ferry terminals.

Perfect for our future residents, the Glider travels along Orleigh Street into Montague Road, stopping at Cordeaux Street as well as Montague Road before making its way through South Brisbane to the Cultural Centre and on to the CBD and Fortitude Valley.

Connecting with the Cultural Centre busway station and suburban services on Adelaide Street, as well as the West End ferry teriminal and rail services at South Brisbane, it operates 18 hours a day Sunday to Thursday and 24 hours a day Friday and Saturday.

By boat: Brisbane City Council’s SpeedyCats provide more than 100 peak-hour express services along the Brisbane River each week, including West End, St Lucia, Guyatt Park, North Quay, Riverside, Hawthorne, Teneriffe and Northshore Hamilton.

The ferries are part of the city’s personality, with the West End terminal conveniently located at the corner of Orleigh Road and Hoogley Street.

A preferred transport choice for many West End residents, all CityCats have WiFi and are one of the fastest ways of getting around the riverside areas of Brisbane.

There’s also something simply magical about the rush of fresh river breeze on your face when you’re sitting at the front of the deck as the big cat whooshes along the city’s signature feature.

Ferry services operate seven days a week, with services just 15 minutes apart for most of the day. The first service at West End starts at 5.23am.

By bike: For those who appreciate the simplicity of pedal power, the distinctive Green Cabs tricycles are a common sight on the peninsula, taking passengers along the region’s many cycle paths and through the inner city parks and gardens.

Cycling is a popular way of getting to and from the city when you live at West End – and why not? You don’t even have to own a bike.

Brisbane’s CityCycle hire scheme has up to 2,000 bikes and 150 stations in the inner area, stretching from West End to Newstead and Toowong.

Offering a fun alternative for short trips, the scheme is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and you can join for as little as $2 for a 24-hour casual pass. Courtesy helmets are even available on many of the bikes.

The family-friendly Riverside Drive path, which hugs the Brisbane River between Ferry Road and Davies Park, is right on our doorstep. Keep going and you will pass through South Bank enroute to Kangaroo Point.

If you need to cross the river, take Kurilpa Bridge for a direct and scenic route into the CBD or the City Botanic Gardens. Alternatively, follow the Go Between Bridge to the Bicentenniual Bikeway at Toowong and travel out to the Centenary suburbs.

For the more serious rider, the options are almost endless.
