This is a great area to wander in the sun, watch the people and just relax. The beach is fun and the veggie garden is just a great idea.

We have been coming to Brisbane for a long time but have never been to SouthBank. It is now our favourite spot! The parklands are awesome with something for everyone. From Temples to Swimming pools, Vegetable gardens to river walks, restaurants to playgrounds - its awesome!

A short hike from the top of Anne Street (best entrance is via Roma St Station) these gardens are a credit to the city. The whole park is magnificently manicured and presented and a beautiful stroll.

Best "city beach" we saw on our travels - lots of cool water park things for kids. The market is also really lovely, with interesting food and handmade crafts.
