First time here in years, and will be returning as my 8 year old loves it. The man made lagoon is beautiful, and my daughter had such a ball with her friend playing and swimming in it. Pity there's not more shade - everyone crowds in to the shade they can find, but still worth going to.

Such a lovely place to walk around, im really loving the herb and veggie garden there at the moment. The parkland is so clean, vibrant, enjoyable, busy but chilled. Always something going off there. Please go and have a walk here when you visit and take it all in.

We got dropped off at the big wheel , which I thought would be a great start to our trip to South bank but ended up being the end of our day trip, They may have spent a lot of money after the floods on the more visual parts but have forgotten about the minor fine tuning and up grading... More

My favorite place in Brisbane so far! Is perfect in summer if yo wanna refresh you can go to the artificial beach. There are restaurants with different food from around the world, a cinema with the biggest screen in Brisbane, a Wheel, just like the one in London. I have rode it twice, by day and night, I personally prefer... More

Is nicely done, perhaps a little tacky but one nice part of the city. Best part is the galleries at the far end - well worth a look. Avoid Brisbane in summer, heat can be oppressive for months with little relief - winter is lovely.

This place has great restaurants, souvenir shopping, a lagoon and fantastic views of the city. If you don't mind a 20min walk park the car over at kangaroo point cliffs and go down the stairs to the walking trail below. Then walk along the waters edge around the river. You will pass some things left over from expo 88 and... More

Easy to get to by free ferry shuttle ( red ferry). Get there early in the day if you go on a hot weekend because shade real estate is at a premium.

A great place to bring the children on a hot day as the pool area is an oasis in the city. Young families from the suburbs often make this a destination on a regular basis. Plenty of small eateries around with toilet facilities available in throughout. I like to walk through the middle of the sculptures over shadowing the footpath.... More

I had a day to spend with some Canadian friends and needed to cater for adults and a child. South Bank was perfect. For $15 we parked in the QPAC/State Library car parks and strolled alongside the river to the South Bank precinct. We enjoyed lunch and beers at the Plough Inn followed by a splash in the fountains area... More
