The site of Expo in 1988, it has been refurb'd into a bustling hub that's walking distance from the city, central to a major bus exchange, and with ferry stops for either direction up and down the Brisbane River. Not dissimilar to what you would expect in a theme park or a resort-style hotel, but on a bigger scale, a pool has been transformed into a man-made beach in lush park surrounds. If public pools are not your thing, this would be subject to the same aversions, but for an easily accessible dip on a hot and humid Brisbane summer day, it's hard to beat. Great for the kids and big kids alike. There are bbq's in the park if you want throw on some snags, but you're spoiled for choice here when it comes to restaurants; with everything from takeaway canteens, mid range casual, to up-market dining. On the edge of the Brisbane River, many are worth an afternoon aperitif just to watch the sun go down looking back over the City. In immediate walking distance is a cinema, the Queensland Performing Arts Complex, the Gallery Of Modern Art, plus more. You are walking distance to the funky bars of West End or there's a pub in the centre of the parklands themselves. The Brisbane Wheel is located here and though much smaller than the London version, does give some nice elevated views. It really is one of those "something for everyone" places.
