One of our top recommendations for cheap date ideas Brisbane couples can enjoy together is a picnic at a scenic park or location. 

If you’re looking for the best picnic spots near Brisbane or wondering what picnic spots North Brisbane has to offer, you can’t go wrong with Acacia Park. 

There is a small parking area in Pine River Drive or take your bicycle if you can to explore the beautiful area more.

Why Acacia Park is one of the Best Picnic Spots near Brisbane

Just a super short walk away from the parking, the spectacular river views start to pull you towards it.

There are a few places you can sit or set up a picnic there in the shade or in the sun:

  • The area right in front of the water can sometimes feel like a private beach (less likely to happen at sunset or weekends when photographers or local fishers start turning up
  • Or some of the great outdoor benches or tables and chairs that’s there
  • Explore the area a bit more and you’re sure to find a more secluded area if that’s your preference

Your furbaby can come along if you want to bring him/her. There’s a water station for doggies too.

Hubby and I had a picnic there in the middle of July. We went in the early afternoon, on the weekend, so there was hardly anyone else. More people started turning up around sunset though. We love going there during the week for a more secluded feel when far fewer tend to go there.

If you’re looking for some ideas of what to pack for your picnic basket – we packed a few things we bought from Coles – cooked and ready to eat prawns, bell peppers, nuts, blueberries and sweets. 

It was a lovely, relaxing way to spend the afternoon and we hope you can enjoy it too!
