If you're visiting Brisbane, this is probably the best thing to see. Plenty of restaurants, playgrounds, views of the city, museums, art galleries, etc. Even a city beach!

A great place to go for a walk, nice markets on the weekend. Really beautiful plant life and lovely garden design. The pools are great for the kids.

This Parklands has a range of free or low cost activities. there are several large swimming areas suitable for all ages, craft markets (on the weekend) and open air cinemas some evenings. There are restaurants and cafes. Even if you are on a tight budget you can sit in one of the many cafes and bars, overlooking the city. For the health conscious, there are running tracks. The Parklands is next to the art galleries, museum and science centre. You could easily spend a day there and be fully entertained.

Southbank was merely metres from where we stayed over the weekend and it was great to stroll through every single day! The markets there from Friday night to Sunday, the restaurants and cafes were wonderful and swimming in the beach was better than our hotel pool! We also got to watch dragon boat racing on the river which was great too! We live 2hrs away so it's worth the drive for a day out.
