  • Such a nice park! It was really hot the last few days in Brisbane, and this park has tons of shaded areas with benches where you can just sit and enjoy the views and a nice breeze off the water. A nice play area, and beautiful little walking trails with flowers and a friendship garden!

  • Very cool water park open to the public - and it even has a white sand beach! Plenty of places to hold a picnic, with plenty of tables. There are plenty of lights, even LED lights on the tables. Lots of cafes, pubs and ice cream stores nearby. Easily accessible by ferry or train. The area is surrounded by trees providing good shade.

  • What a pleasant surprise! Great way to spend a Sunday exploring the South Bank Parklands. Having never been to Brisbane it was actually one of my highlights of my holiday! Well worth the time when in Brisbane.

  • Came over to QLD for a holiday and went through the CBD to come across this amazing beach like park in the middle of the city. What an amazing idea and it looks great against the city back drop. Water is clean and the park is well maintained

  • Quite simply the best place there is anywhere. Go there and you'll know what I mean. I first went there in 1988 for Expo but since then it has developed into something very special indeed.
