Where else in the world can you paddle in a lagoon whilst overlooking the Brisbane city skyline? Even just strolling through the Parklands along the River fills me with feelings of gratitude! It is so beautiful.... More

We went to the Southbank for a stroll. The Southbank, with its lovely location by the Brisbane River, has something for everyone, from endless dining options to free swimming in the man-made lagoons. As we were walking The Arbour, a kilometre-long walkway awning located in the Parklands, we enjoyed the breeze and the warm day. The Arbour has won multiple... More

Fantastic man made beach area close to Brisbane CBD with swimming, paddling, beach and water play area all free!

Also has access to Weekend markets and Queensland Performing Arts Theatre and easy access... More

Went there in the vening for some dinner - there was a night market on with some nice things on sale. The vibe and energy of the place was very nice and would highly recommend it for an evening out. There are plenty of restaurants around for some good food and a nice day,

We were very impressed with South Bank Parklands. There is something here for everyone. The gardens are well tended and the walks through various shaded areas offer some relief from the heat. The children all seemed to be enjoying the swimming pools and playgrounds.
