South bank is probably a good place to go if you haven't been to Brisbane before. The parklands itself with its lagoon etc will probably appeal to overseas visitors as it a beach within the city. But a lot of the restaurants are over priced and if you have a family, I suggest taking a picnic as it will save you a fortune! The big wheel there is no London Eye and again a bit pricey if you have a family! Worth a look up if you're a couple. An expensive place for families but you can have a really good day (as long as its sunny) doing the free things and just enjoying the place!
