South Bank Parklands

South Bank Parklands Review

One of the most appealing urban parks in Australia, this massive complex includes parklands, shops, a maritime museum, walking and cycling paths, a sprawling man-made beach and luxurious lagoons, a carved-wood pagoda, and excellent city views. The weekend Collective Markets (running until 9 pm on Saturday evenings) bristle with handmade goods, live entertainers, buskers, artists and emerging designers, and almost every week you'll find a new festival or event coloring the Cultural Forecourt. Nearby Grey Street is lined with trendy shops and cafés, as well as contemporary international restaurants, bars, and an on-site cinema. The Wheel of Brisbane, a giant Ferris wheel at the northern entrance of South Bank, is also a must for travelers wanting a spectactular view of the city for A$15 per person. South Bank Parklands stretches along the riverbank south of Queensland Cultural Centre.
