South Bank is Brisbane’s premier lifestyle and cultural destination. Located on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, its 17 hectares of lush parklands, world-class eateries, stunning river views and hundreds of delightful events all year round make it the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The precinct plays host to Brisbane's thriving cultural heart, which now has a solid reputation for securing large-scale musicals and international art exhibitions. It includes Australia's largest Gallery of Modern Art, the Queensland Theatre Company, Queensland Museum, Queensland Performing Arts Centre and State Library of Queensland, an impressive combination that connects us to our history and culture.
South Bank also has a more playful side and is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike who come to the parklands to bask in the glorious Queensland sunshine, swim in the man-made Streets Beach or relax at the cafes, parks and boardwalks.
Spanning the length of the river are Little Stanley and Grey Streets, offering a myriad of restaurants, hotels and bars, fashion boutiques selling top designs from international and local talent and the 60-metre-high Brisbane Wheel offering panoramic views of the Brisbane River, city and mountains. The precinct is also home to regular markets (The Collective Markets), a community garden (Epicurious Garden), a high end riverside dining precinct (River Quay) plus a number of green spaces, picnic areas (with BBQ facilities) and children's playgrounds.
