We love to visit Southbank when back home in Brisbane...strolling through the beautiful bougainvillea arbor towards the family friendly beach area - taking in the iconic Brisbane skyline, watching the City Cat ferries cruise up and down the river. If visiting for the first time, take in a City Cat cruise, before enjoying a delicious meal at one of the... More

So many activities possible - swim in a resort style pool or laze on a sandy beach; walk through beautiful parklands, along the Brisbane River and through a rainforest; dine at a restaurant, cafe or cook your own on the well positioned barbecues; music, art galleries and museums..... You choose!!!

We walked in the rain to a City Hopper stop on South Bank. From there we travelled up and down the river taking in all the sights. We eventually disembarked somewhere near the Queen Street Mall. Terrific way to spend a rainy day.
