An area that has been developed over the years into a major attraction for visitors and locals. Swimming areas for the kids relaxing garden walks, and places to sit. Skirted on one side by the river and on the other by too many restaurants to mention. Leads to the major entertainment area with Theatres, Art Galleries and Museums.

A great place to spend a day...and night. Fantastic variety of sensational food and coffee. Amazing inner city beaches and so much fun for the kids. And you can't leave without having an ice-cream - so many choices; but Nitrogenie is a must - watch your ice-cream made in front of you.

Southbank was lovely to visit whilst they had all the extra Christmas activities on during December. The markets were good, just wished the movies were on for all of December or at least another week before. Family loved our time their.

I would say that South Bank Parklands is an extremely popular place to go and one place no one should miss. With sufficient shade and cool grass and the pools there is no better place to go on a summer's day than here. There are many places to eat and the markets are on every Sunday and are not to...

Southbank is a great day out. Absolutely free to enter and so much to do. The kids will love the kids swimming area. Lots of places to eat at and they have the best markets on the weekend. Such a great place to visit and spend the day.
