Great to just wander, sight see, exercise, sit or play!
Smallish playground but very interesting activities for kids.
Water section was amazing. A large pool, a beach pool and then kids splash pad and small pool. Plus a creek with rocks further down. In great condition and clean.
The rainforest section of trees was nice to cool down. A must do!

I took my nephew here for the day he loved it. Pools are perfect for them to play in all day. A lot of shops where a variety of different food’s nearby. Love about this free entry to the pools

You can do as little or as much as you like in this riverside precinct. Get your steps up following the riverside walk, your calories up with all the delicious dining choices, your knock your stress levels just chilling on the green.

There is so much to do in South Bank and nearby that could spend the whole day there. Nothing like sitting on a 'beach' while looking across a river to the Brisbane CBD, the beach is a good place to go if you want to try to avoid kids as they tend to stick to splash pad. South Bank really is awesome for kids though, there is an amazing playground and water park, during school holidays there are often free activities for kids or shows at the piazza. During the winter holidays, they had snow brought in and you could toboggan or throw snowballs all the comfort of 20 degree weather. Of course there is the Brisbane Eye but also, the Queensland museum that includes the very interactive science centre or the gallery of modern art that has children's attractions during the holidays. You will be spoilt for choice when trying to decide where to eat, you've got everything you could ever want within a 1km radius.

You must visit Southbank parklands when you visit Brisbane, particularly in summer. It is a great place to take the kids for a morning or afternoon swim.

The 'inner city' beach is amazingly beautiful and popular. I travelled to here by the QR code and easy to use scooters dotted all over the city. Was fun!

I reckon that we spent four days overall enjoying the attractions in the South Bank area. Each day we discovered something new; sculptures, relics of Expo "88, murals, street art, parks within parks, memorials, and more. So many entertainment options and restaurants offering a good variety of cuisines. It's also a cultural mecca with art galleries and museums. Plenty of family attractions to enjoy, free swimming facilities, kiddies pools and playgrounds, walking tracks, picnic areas. We enjoyed a number of strolls on the Clem Jones Boardwalk as we visited nearby facilities. Great views across the river where a modern skyline rises from among some of the colonial buildings that remain. Beautiful at night with the myriad lights.
I will try to list our discoveries on Trip Advisor if not already listed.
