    Visit South Bank, just over...

    Visit South Bank, just over the bridge from the city.The Concert Hall and Conservatorium of Music are right next door, and the Museum, and Art Gallery and State Library just a short walk.
    It's a great place to meet friends and family, bike, jog, have a meal or snack. There's quiet seating by the river looking to the city, and watching the world go by. And you can swin at the man-made beach, sand and all,in a tropical setting.There are also markets on, with craft etc., and a farmer's market also, every second week.

    Man-made beach for swimming all year round. Heaps of places to eat, and next to the Museum and Art Gallery.

    New bridge to walk over the river from Southbank to the City side.

    Huge Cinema complex including an IMAX Theatre.

    Markets on Friday nights, all day Saturday and Sunday.

    On the other side of the river in downtown, this is a nice place to take a rest and relax... or hide from the summer heat and sun between noon and 2 p.m. former expo area, with public pools and snack bars...THE place to take a break from walking thru the concrete jungle =)

    Just in case you missed my Brisbane page, this is where I spent most of my time, the fantastic man made lagoon on the Southbank.

    Walking through Southbank there are many attractions, some beautiful gardens but one very striking scene is the Bouganvillia Pathway. When flowering the scene is magnificent.

    Watch the passing parade

    by TheBlueSpeck Written Feb 25, 2006

    If you're into people watching, Southbank is a great place to indulge this little hobby.
    Sit there for long enough and I'm sure the entire spectrum of humanity will pass you by.

    Brisbane Southbank

    There's also a lovely stream meandering in and out of the trees so we stopped in the shade and dipped our feet for a while.

    Visit Southbank, south of the Brisbane River, for a day of relaxation and activities. There is an artificial beach lagoon, BBQ pits, and on weekends, you have the weekend markets selling handicrafts.

    South Bank Beach Brisbane

    Unfortunately Brisbane does not have a beach, but if you get too hot head to the fake one!

    This is South bank Beach, on yes, the south side of Brissie.
