South Brisbane

The inner city suburb of South Brisbane has undergone a renaissance in recent years to become one of Brisbane's most popular areas.

Once full of warehouses, factories, and wharves, South Brisbane underwent an incredible metamorphosis when the derelict industrial area on the banks of the Brisbane River was transformed into the site of the World Expo in 1988.

Now the suburb hums with the sounds of cosmopolitan coffee shops, fashionable wine bars, quality hotels and multi-ethnic cafes and restaurants. South Brisbane is bordered by South Bank, the city's premier recreational destination. At South Bank you can swim in the placid waters of the man-made Streets Beach, enjoy stunning views and beautiful parklands, treat your taste buds to a delicious array of dining options and catch some theatre, ballet, opera, a concert or an art exhibition.

A number of beautiful old buildings still punctuate the South Brisbane landscape. Worth a look are Saint Andrew's Anglican Church, the former Municipal Chambers and a number of old pubs that have withstood the tests and trends of time.

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre can also be found at South Brisbane. This large centre regularly hosts exhibitions, charity balls, gala dinners, events, seminars, comedy performances, and concerts by big name acts.

South Brisbane is a two minute drive or ferry ride across the river from the Brisbane City Centre. Accommodation options include hotels, motels and self-contained apartments.
