“City centre haven”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Brisbane's South Bank should be a model for other cities on what to do with your riverfront. Stretching for about a mile along the south bank of the Brisbane River this is an area of fairly diverse parks and gardens with eateries and the Cultural Centre and Performing Arts Centre at one end. There is even a beach with swimming area and play fountains. I do think they need to do something to separate walkers from cyclists though as the whole area is shared pathway and there is an accident just waiting to happen as bikes weave through people, often at speed. Lovely area though - highly recommended.

“Great place for everyone”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We love going to Southbank even if it is only for a coffee. The pools are always clean and fun to use. There are great restaurants nearby and the museums, theatres and Brisbane eye are all there.

“Nice place to wander around”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

It has a very relaxed atmosphere, there's food if you're hungry, or you can just sit and people watch. Lovely view of Brisbane City.
