Attend a stand up comedy show at the Spiegeltent as part of the Brisbane Festival. Great location for food and drinks along the riverside. Food was well priced and easy to get, no long queues.

Spent two days here with our small grandchildren. They loved the beaches and we loved the easy access to the parklands and the restaurants.

there is a big pool to get wet, a walk after the Brisbane eye. have a nice walk after meal and enjoy the scenic view. if you want to enjoy more could catch a river cat ride from South Banks and have a tour.

Being a local,my family and I love visiting Southbank parklands. With the views to the city and easy walk to the gallery of modern arts and museum,this piece of brisbane is a great way to relax on the weekend whilst still being able to shop if you choose-just cross the walkway over to the city. The beach in the parklands... More

Well was I surprised, who knew? Live music, great restaurants, museums, swimming and ... much more. Did I mention the outdoor shopping? Sharing an evening there with friends was simply wonderful. We dined at the Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar. Thanks Elizabeth. Would I go back sure.

I remember the parklands when it was EXPO 88 so its always good to revisit it. I love how families are making use of the lawns and the swimming holes. The markets are fantastic, the cafes and generally reasonable - a great place to visit really.
