South Bank Parklands Reviews
One of the best places in Brisbane to relax, unwind, eat and have fun with entire family. Lot of activities for everyone including chance to get fresh organic vegetables every Thursday. more »
The parklands are absolutely beautiful. Lovely to find some shade among the trees or to walk along the waterfront. Can get the local water transportation along there. The man made beach is a bit... more »
The beach is a great way to cool down in the hot Queensland sun. Plenty of amenities nearby. Good for kids of all ages, we went with a friend and her 7 month old. Water is clean and cool. Lots of shaded areas too. Really impressed. Changing rooms and showers available.
If you visit Brisbane, the beach inside the city is definitely a fantastic experience... You will see a mini market (only in the weekend's, I think). Many restaurants, sand and blue water 💦🏖️ A good place for kids as well! Who won't lay on the beach and look directly at the tall Brisbane city?? I'm a fan! 🌴⭐
