Southbank is a great day out. Beautiful pools with beach, water play area for the youngsters, plenty of cafes, restaurants and the markets over the weekend. The wheel of Brisbane gives you great views of the city, there's live theatre, the cinemas & museum. Plenty to do & see for everyone.

The Sandy Pool is beautiful to do some sunbaking and cool off, the rainforest is a nice relaxing walk or a nice cool place to sit and rest those tired feet or eat some lunch, there are casual takeaways or there are many restaurants in South Parklands or Stanley St which is the street next to Southbank. You can relax... More

South Bank Parklands is definitely worth a visit whether a local or a visitor to Brisbane. There is something for everyone from the pools and beach, to the innovative Epicurious Gardens, restaurants, markets or a lovely stroll along the river.

Pack your towel and swimmers when you head here in warmer months. They pool is a great place to chill down. We often got for a dip after a long run or bring the kids down for a swim during the week. Gets packed but there's loads of places to sit and chill that are not on the sand itself.... More
