“Great place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This place like heaven you can swim for free, eat and be with family and friends, if you live in the city take the train to South bank and pay 4.80 $ standard, you pay less concession, its one way though, I have enjoyed my day there.

“Great place to hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Lots of quality people watching. Good food and the swim area was great for the kids. Parking was easy but costly.

“Great Place To Visit & Chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Have been to South Bank 'millions' of times over the years. It is always a great place to take the children to the beach or playground. The markets are nice (not that I get to do these anymore with children in tow :) and the restaurants/cafes are overall pretty okay. I prefer the restaurant/cafes in Little Stanley Street, just opposite South Bank though. Oh, and its fun to take a CityCat to South Bank, nice river cruise.

“Great park with easy access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Took the free ferry here and had a great afternoon out at the pool. The pool is similar to the Cairns pool - an artificial beach area leading in to a very large warm pool. It was fairly crowded for a mid-week afternoon, though - wonder if it gets really bad on the weekends. But there was enough room for us to leave our towels and stuff out at the beach and not have anything disturbed. Swimming and having an amazing view of the city at the same time is a great experience. Great way to spend an afternoon.

“Perfect family say out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Great for kids as so safe for swimming and lots of guards on duty. Markets are good and plenty of good and drink options around.

A lazy day here with a beer or two in the plough inn is a must when visiting Brisbane
