Great thing to make time to go to. There is something for all ages and always something happening. It also most of the time leads to more fun times.

Walked across the footbridge from Tank Street and all along Southbank Beautiful Arbour to walk under. Plenty to see and do along the way. A few cold drinks and lovely share plate at one of the many eateries. Caught the free ferry back across the river. A very pleasant day.

We had lunch here on a perfect sunny day. The large public swimming area was beautiful, the numerous restuarants buzzing and the herb and veggie gardens prolific. There's is nothing to dislike about South Bank! A must for Brisbane's visitors

It was quite hot the day I visited the Parklands & it was great to see families having a fun time in the water and a safe environment. I also enjoyed a nice stroll riverside & dropped into the local pub for a nice glass of wine.

A park and street beach area ideal for all ages but especially for families with young children . You could easily spend all day in this area without spending much money and keeping children happy and active.

To a tourist this is the most amazing (and unexpected) facility to find in a city. It gets very busy but there seems to be plenty of room whether you want to sit on the manmade city beach or the grass. All the kids (big and little) were having a great time!
