Love this spot which we visited with our five year old. Set along the river, it's a perfect mix of tranquil gardens, playgrounds, beaches and little pools to play it. We also scored a great food market and there are excellent family and couples restaurants nearby.

First off I got to say Brisbane wasn't a destination I had planned, I ended up there cause of aeroplan points flew me there instead of Sydney. I wasn't there long but needed something to do in order to get my jetlag sorted. Unfortunately while I was there they had flooding.

This is probably the best space in Brisbane and has few rivals around the world. Nicely landscaped. Pedestrian bridges available. Great museums and restaurants. Bicycle lanes. Great!

Lovely place, perfect for a walk, a coffee or maybe some jogging along the river! Really loved the flowerbeds full of aromatic plants and the ambience so chilling and relaxed! Perfect for kids too!

There's good food, an historic pub, green surrounds. The movie cinema is great too - very big screen. The markets aren't great when they're on - not much unique there, mostly overpriced kids clothes and candles etc. Best experienced on foot, ferry or by bike as the parking is very expensive. The beach is a good place to cool off,... More
