Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Brisbane Region / Brisbane / South Bank Parklands
Sitting along the Brisbane River, South Bank Parklands sits in the heart of Brisbane. Towering over the park at 60 m (197 ft), the Wheel of Brisbane Ferris wheel offers you a panorama of the city and its surrounding. When your ride finishes, head to Streets Beach, a manmade beach spreading out over 2,000 sq m (21,500 sq ft) and containing a base of 4,000 cubic meters (5,200 cubic yards) of sand with another 70 tons brought in every summer. Here you can swim in chlorinated fresh water and relax under the shade of a palm tree. Other attractions include the traditionally designed Nepal Peace Pagoda and flowering bougainvillea on the 443 curling steel columns of The Arbour. Numerous restaurants and cafes offer dining options. Arrange your visit to South Bank Parklands and discover more family-friendly attractions in Brisbane using our Brisbane vacation planner.

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! 🌴⭐
