This is always a favourite to meet up with family and/or friends. Sometimes we gather at a restaurant, takeaway or bring the picnic goodies. Littles play (in summer swim) adults walk and talk. Love the boardwalk with bridge links to both sides of the city.

Housed on the land that gave Brisbane Expo '88, Southbank is a gift to Brisbane residents and visitors providing so much free activities and entertainment + plenty of green space to just sit, relax and enjoy if you want. Southbank has something to offer everyone.
