You'll see the curves of the river, the lines of the freeway, the skyline of the CBD. Plus, on a clear day you can see south-west to the distant ranges, east towards Moreton Bay and miles in every other direction. Enjoy the facilities of a cafe, restaurant and lookout at the top.
Where did people gather in Brisbane before South Bank was created? It's hard to imagine our city without this destination. Every visitor to Brisbane will enjoy South Bank's sandy beach, the open grassy picnic spots, the shops and dozens of eating places. There are the cinemas, regular free live entertainment and many festivals and fireworks throughout the year.
The Cultural Centre
Enjoy Queensland arts and theatre at the Cultural Centre, South Bank. Spend time at the Queensland Art Gallery and new Gallery of Modern Art.
The Queensland Museum Sciencentre is especially popular with the kids and be sure to visit the new State Library of Queensland.
See a play, opera, ballet or dozens of other performances at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre [QPAC].
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Visitors from overseas will just love the abundant and easily seen Australian wildlife at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Hold a koala, feed a kangaroo, hear a talk about our reptiles - it all makes for a great day out.
There's no need to leave the city to experience our amazing animals.
A trip on the river
Even locals love to get out on the Brisbane River and it's so easy and cheap to do with a journey on the CityCat. Take a cruise up and down the river, stopping where ever you like along the way - South Bank, University of Queensland, New Farm... The CityCats glide over the water and you'll see million dollar houses. Travel under the Story Bridge and get a whole new perspective. Our ferry guide gives you more information.
Moreton Bay is huge! Take a trip to Stradbroke Island (affectionately known as to locals). On Moreton Island you can feed wild dolphins at Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort. If you don't have much time, sit beside the bay when you visit the bayside areas of Sandgate, Wynnum or Cleveland.
City Botanic Gardens
Visitors will see the exotic and gorgeous plants that flourish in our sub-tropical climate.
The City Botanic Gardens are in a fabulous spot beside the river (and an easy walk from the busy CBD). Make sure you don't miss a walk through the mangroves on the boardwalk.
