wonderful way to spend a Sunday. Beautiful park, fun festivals, great restaurants nearby. we spent "american" fathers day here at a festival where we got some great food, then walked through the lovely park and found another restaurant for dessert.

brilliant we went as a group of woman and some of us hadn't been there for over 20yrs. There is so much to take on, so many thing to do and in one weekend there just wasn't enough time! We found it safe, clean and every one was wonderful. Mostly loved the eatable gardens!

I really like this place, it´s so cool have they have made a beach in the middle of a busy city. Its a nice place where you can relax after a long shopping day, and on warm days enjoy a swim. So if you are going to Brisbane I would recommend to bring your swimmers.

Wonderful idea for walk. Also the artificial beach, with a big swimming pool. All the restaurants near there are "beach" fashioned, like surfers or mexican. Free WIFI in the area. I´d like it!

South bank is really nice, I love the walkways and the overarching flowers. Good selection of museums all walkable to each other. Pedestrian bridges over to cbd, uni, botanic gardens & of course city cat brings you right there. Also easy to walk up to west end.

Too crowded with building, just like being in another concrete canyon. As usual for Brisbane not enough clear signage pointing to this conglomeration of buildings. No clear signage to Sth Brisbane Station.

What a great area, you could spend all day here, walking through the arbor, visiting many of the nearby shops and eating at one of the many cafes, restaurants, takeaway joints, etc. There is so much to see and do, whether you want to look at the gardens, visit a pagoda or sit down and take in the view.
