Southbank Parklands are a treasure. I try to enjoy them every time I visit Brisbane, because it makes me happy to see so many people - visitors and locals alike - enjoying all that is on offer. If you haven't been to Southbank, do yourself a favour and spend time there - you won't regret it.

We met our Daughter and 2 grandchildren at South Bank. The swimming pool was amazing and the playground is great for the children. Everything is close by including the extra large ice creams, which h went down well. Great place for family fun and frolic.

I highly recommend to spend some time at south bank. This swimming/beach pool is free and safeguard are looking at security. There is a plenty of bar and restaurant around and BBQ areas. From my opinion this is a Brisbane hot spot!

What a great spot!! With Brisbane inland / not close close to a beach, this is amazing. Choice between sand or a pool, huge area so you don't feel squashed. Lifeguards on call, lovely facilities and great view of the city.

There are places to rest and relax, with deck chairs... More

Spent the large part of a day here, with the kids running between the playground, fresh and saltwater pools. Incredible spot! There are lifeguards at all the pools, and it's a great way to enjoy the sun and water right beside the river. A must see/visit in Brisbane!

I am a regular visitor especially over the last month or so, you can take a ride on the ferris wheel and get a great view of the city. Stroll along the walking paths under the pink Bouganvillea, sometimes MoJo Jacket play around 5pm. They originate from Melbourne Annabelle , who has a beautiful voice and plays keyboards and her...
