My eight year old nephew loves the playground with it's challenging climbing frames and slides. And the water park is lovely. A safe and interactive environment. The markets offer interesting and beautiful locally crafted goods.

Southbank is an oasis in the city where you can stroll around and see the birdlife of Brisbane. It is an ideal meeting place and smaller kids like to swim at the lagoon there.
