South Bank Parklands reviews
There was a lovely veggie garden there that was well established. You can buy the produce during the day. It was lovely to wander through the park after dinner. Would recommend. more »
A beautiful cobination of gardens, water features and local wildlife. Well maintained, clean and just amazing. A short walk out of the CBD, or 1 stop on the train from the city. Enjoyed a pleasant..... more »
The beach is a great way to cool down in the hot Queensland sun. Plenty of amenities nearby. Good for kids of all ages, we went with a friend and her 7 month old. Water is clean and cool. Lots of shaded areas too. Really impressed. Changing rooms and showers available.
If you visit Brisbane, the beach inside the city is definitely a fantastic experience... You will see a mini market (only in the weekend's, I think). Many restaurants, sand and blue water 💦🏖️ A good place for kids as well! Who won't lay on the beach and look directly at the tall Brisbane city?? I'm a fan! 🌴⭐
