Australia’s only beach in the middle of the city, Streets Beach is one of South Bank’s most popular attractions. A unique, man-made swimming beach, Streets Beach overlooks the brilliant Brisbane River and central business district.
Conceived as a major piece of landscape, Streets Beach has a sparkling-clean, crystal-clear lagoon with white-sand beaches, palm trees, pebbled creeks and shady shallows surrounded by subtropical trees and exotic plantings.
Safety is extremely important at South Bank: there are none of the waves or dangerous rips found at coastal beaches, and Streets Beach is patrolled by experienced, professional lifeguards seven days a week.
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.
