From the inner city hotels, head to the river next to the casino. There are some stairs that take you down to the river's edge and a long running/bike path. You can head west (turn right) and run for about 12 kms all the way to the University of Queensland. There, you can enjoy miles of sporting fields and roads to run on. If you turn left at the the river as you come down from the casino though, run around the University of Technology into the Botanical Gardens where the paths can take you for runs up to 6 or 7 kms. If you continue north from there through the city towards Fortitude Valley, then turn left at Brunswick Street, run all the way to the end for New Farm Park. In the jacaranda flowering season, it is spectacular.
