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.

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.

South Bank Parklands reviews
Nice place for lazy afternoon. Everything you need is well in reach. Superb for families with small children. We rented bikes and drove next to the river.
