Just over the bridge from the CBD, the South Bank area has all the fun, festivity, art and culture on the south bank of the Brisbane River. There, you will find the Queensland Performing Arts Complex, State Library, Queensland Art Gallery and Museum. South Bank Parklands are home to restaurants, cafes, the Maritime Museum, and a real sandy beach and lagoon, all with a city backdrop.
There is a different entertainment programme every day, including games for children, music, sporting events and more. The lively antics of the street entertainers delight and add to the vibrancy of the Parklands.
Another highlight of the South Bank experience is a stroll through the bright and colourful markets. Hundreds of keen shoppers visit the markets every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday to seek out a unique gift or locally made arts and crafts.
Even if you prefer to window shop, the sights and sounds combine for an entertaining affair.
One of South Bank’s international features is the Nepalese Pagoda. Located on the edge of a rainforest on the Riverfront, the Pagoda is a sanctuary in which to rest and relax.
