The South Bank Parklands are worth a visit including the Nepal peace pagoda The wheel of Brisbane was starting to be demolished when I was there. I particularly enjoyed walking and running along the foreshore of the Brisbane River. I also dined at some of the restaurants which offer a broad range of good quality cuisine. The Brisbane CBD skyline... More

A great range of restaurants/bars and a great walk along the brisbane river with beautiful views of Brisbane city. Beautiful man made beach and pools perfect for the family or just catching up with friends. Take a ride on the Brisbane Wheel to get excellent views of the city. A short walk from the Brisbane CBD and well worth it... More

This was a nice halt for us before we proceeded to the Gold Coast. There was the wheel of Brisbane, Nepal peace pagoda, Courier mail Piazza to see. It was a very picturesque sight looking across the river. Its a place where time stands still and you can just idle around. Glad we had a halt there.

South bank is a relaxed and cheap place to spend some time. Visit GOMA, the Art Gallery, Science Centre, walk along the river, take a dip in the lagoon or just find a quiet place to lie around, read a book and soak up the sun. Early evenings are lovely to grab a bite or drink and watch the city... More

Peace and Tranquility is what I feel when walking around the Parklands. I was disappointed that the Cafe at the swimming area has gone as it was lovely to sit there for coffee or lunch and watch the world go by. With the markets and street performers there is always something to see and do along with the wonderful eateries... More
