South Bank Parklands, Brisbane Reviews

  • Great area, plenty of nice eateries, a variety of flavours from various places. Several bars, pop up markets, often live music. Yet to enjoy the swimming but looks great. Often very crowded however particularly on weekends. Cinema is very reasonably priced even the snacks! Regular ferries from 3 different jetties (serving the different services) mix of free and paid services. Plenty of lounging area, be it grass, sand, benches or concrete ledges. Also plenty of parkland to wander through as well as the street cafes etc.

  • The ultimate public park with amazing public pools to enjoy for free with all of the family. The South banks are a fantastic location with a superb panorama of the city skyline as backdrop. The pools are really nice with sand beaches and awesome aqua park for kids to play. Facilities are clean and well organized. A multiple selection of bars and restaurants as well as shops of all kind are located in the immediate surroundings completing the amazing picture of this unforgettable place. Definitely a "must visit" place if you are travelling to Brisbane!

  • Lovely place to visit for all ages. Family friendly. Constantly being updated. Gardens and lawns are kept in fantastic condition. Playground equipment is suitable for mostly older and able bodied children. Would be great to see some more play ground equipment introduced to suit all ages and abilities. The pools are excellent except for a few rusty light fittings which need to be repaired. Ample seating areas and lots of dining options. The toilets were the biggest downfall, obviously needing a lot of repairs and definitely more regular cleaning. More signage needs to be displayed on the shared bike and pedestrian pathway along the riverfront, as local cyclists are speeding down and yelling at pedestrians. Not a very nice feel on the pathway, especially with small children.

  • A wonderful relaxing family park land setting right in Brisbane. There are cafe's in and around the area they are great to just sit and watch the world go by. There are several man made beach areas that seem to be popular all year around. The museum of modern art, art gallery and convention centre are all in this precinct.
