Parklands

Rich in cultural history, South Bank’s Parklands saw their first glimpse of promise in its post-industrial-period when World Expo 88 opened the area up for public visitation. Enjoyed by so many and seen as a valuable public space to Brisbane after Expo, South Bank’s Parklands were redeveloped for public enjoyment, and that lush inner-city oasis is still enjoyed by the public today.

Considered a haven of natural beauty and flanked by major attractions including The Wheel of Brisbane, Stanley Street Plaza, Little Stanley Street, and River Quay, the Parklands create a domain of escapism and leisurely enjoyment for all who visit. Regardless of the time of day, the Parklands always put on a spectacular show. Whether it’s the sun streaming through the famed bougainvillea-draped Arbour or a glorious red-tinted sunset dancing light along the river’s surface, views from the Parklands always inspire a breathless moment (and usually a photo or two).

Interwoven paths snake their way through the Parklands, meeting to allow you to take small jaunts to wherever you wish; to the Nepalese Pagoda, or to the numerous playgrounds and water activities for kids; for a quick dip at Streets Beach, or to pick some fresh herbs from the Epicurious garden. There’s so much to see and do, you’ll delight in returning to South Bank time and time again, each time having the opportunity to marvel at native flora, stop and refuel at one of our many cafes and restaurants, and get swept up in the ways you can while away the time in this iconic location. The Parklands is also equipped with Wi-Fi, which is free to use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The best part about the Parklands is its chance discoveries and hidden spots. Take some time to explore this natural sanctuary and discover some of South Bank’s best-kept secrets and most-loved hideaways.

South Bank Corporation recognises the traditional owners of the lands at South Bank, the Turrbal and Yuggera people. We also pay our respects to their elders, past and present, and the elders from other communities who visit from time to time
