Kurilpa Park Information

Getting to Kurilpa Park

Kurilpa Park is located on Montague Road, South Brisbane.  Nestled between William Jolly Bridge and GOMA this space is a perfect for our family running event!  The park is within an easy walking distance of the CBD (Kurilpa Bridge), South Bank, Riverside Drive and the Go Between Bridge. Getting there is easy with various public transport options including train, bus, City Cat or Ferry.

Toilet Facilities

As there are no toilets located in the immediate area of Kurilpa Park, portaloo’s will be onsite, with a few more than last year!

Fun for all the Family

Whilst families will probably not last the entire duration of the run, we encourage all families to head down and cheer the racers home (throughout the day we will have some fun activities for kids).

Our official sponsor ‘Flight Centre’ will be joining us again and they will have some giveaways and fun games for all the family to enjoy!

This year we welcome our official charity partner www.dreams2live4.com.au and they will have their marquee onsite and plan to feed us with some delicious goodies. All proceeds will go to this wonderful charity!


Best Viewing Points for the Family

If you’d like to take a stroll along the river there’s plenty to do and see at South Bank for the entire family. The closest playground is situated near the Wheel of Brisbane (approx 15 min walk from Kurilpa Park). If you wish to walk further afield  there are a number of playgrounds heading towards Kangaroo Point, this would also allow you to cheer on the runners along the way!
