South Bank Parkland
On the southern banks of the city lies Brisbane's favourite leisure and entertainment precinct - South Bank Parklands. The 17 hectares of riverside parkland, tropical gardens, lagoons, cafes and attractions are a focus for fun times every day of the year. Among the attractions are the rainforest groves and water gardens, the colourful weekend arts and craft markets and the South Bank Butterfly and Insect House on picturesque Stanley Street Plaza.
perhaps the most popular feature of all is the beach, a tropical lagoon
with sandy beaches and majestic palms, right in the heart of the city
and irresistible on a summer's day in Brisbane.
Cycle paths and walkways weave through the immaculate gardens and groves of tropical forest and provide some of the best views of the city skyline. The dining precinct offers everything from alfresco cafes to quick snacks and gourmet restaurants.
Weekend craft markets, street entertainers, lively traditional
pubs and the programme of events and entertainment staged at Suncorp Piazza
ensure South Bank Parklands buzz with activity day and night.
