Brisbane’s inner-city chill-out spot is the South Bank parklands, covering the banks of the Brisbane River with arbors fringed with purple bougainvillea and shaded by palm trees. The boardwalks and promenades threading their way along the riverside are popular with joggers and cyclists, and ideal for catching city views across to the CBD.

At Streets Beach, tropical gardens surround artificial lagoons complete with sandy beaches, children’s ponds and swimming pools. There are picnic spots galore, plus bars, restaurants and cafes open into the evening.

Ride the Wheel of Brisbane Ferris wheel to catch views from up above, and visit on weekend evenings to browse home wares, jewelry and collectibles at the South Bank Lifestyle Market.
