South Bank Parklands, Brisbane Reviews

  • Love this place. Just meander through the tropical trees beside the river and enjoy the ambience. There's always something to look at, whether it's an art gallery, a stage show or just sitting on one of the benches and watching the ferries. It's so close to everything too. Just walk over a bridge and you're in the city. Highly recommend!

  • Very good and relaxing place to go either with your love one or your little one. The river walk just amazing especially at dawn. The wheel also a must visit when you are there. The botanical walk, the playground, the food stalls, ice cream shop and the Beach area just bonus. You can go there during the week if you don’t like crowd, you can go there Friday night, Saturday and Sunday to see the market.

  • The South Bank Parklands are visually stunning with many restaurants and public activities available all year round. The City Beach is a great public pool that overlooks the city and Brisbane River. The path that stretches along the entire bank is a great place to walk day or night however there was lots of smokers when I went there.

  • One of the best places to be in Brisbane. So much family fun. A great playground for the kids and a man made beach for lots of summer fun. Have a walk on the river and enjoy the copious amounts of restaurants and cafes there are on offer.

  • Good for photo. But you don’t really need to ride it. It is quite small and goes really fast. So you get 5 circles... Good thing is you can always buy it cheaper somewhere.
