To a tourist this is the most amazing (and unexpected) facility to find in a city. It gets very busy but there seems to be plenty of room whether you want to sit on the manmade city beach or the grass. All the kids (big and little) were having a great time!

Last time I was at Southbank, there were so many good changes made. The council had updated the pools to be a lot more kid friendly. The whole area is just so much fun for all ages. And its not just southbank...that area also houses our QPAC...performing arts theatre....the museum and the art Gallery. So much to do in a... More

Wow what a great day. Watching the granddaughters play and knowing that they are safe. Then a very short stroll for lunch and coffee. What a great place to visit. It's a must do when in Brisbane city. And if you don't like the water the cafes are great. 👍🏼👍🏼

The south bank parklands are just a delightful escape in the middle of the city, they were a great place to just go and relax, read a book and escape for a little while. They had some really lovely restaurants (I can't remember the name now) and they had markets every Friday and Saturday which sold the best array of... More

We spent a fabulous afternoon enjoying art galleries, the theatre, restaurants and the general relaxing ambience of South Bank. It is a wonderful place to simply stroll and enjoy the city. We particularly enjoyed strolling along the shoreline boardwalk at dusk, watching the changing city skyline on the opposite bank of the river. Even though it was getting dark at... More
