South Bank Walk (Self Guided), Brisbane

With an enviable location on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, the South Bank is a gorgeous place to spend some down time. Small wonder then that every year, around 11 million people come here to relax and to be entertained.

Unwind amidst the 17 hectares of verdant parkland, dine in world-class eateries, enjoy gorgeous river views and enjoy the fun and spectacle of year-round events. Start your visit with a stroll through extensive parklands that incorporate rainforest areas, a riverside promenade and Streets Beach. This beautiful beach in the middle of the city has white sand, palm trees, subtropical trees and a lagoon. Unlike some of the coastal areas, the water is calm, making it an idea swim destination for kids. For added peace of mind, lifeguards are on patrol seven days a week.

Take a spin on the Wheel of Brisbane, a giant Ferris wheel that will take you almost 60 meters above the ground. Watch a show or concert at the Courier Mail Piazza, an amphitheater that can seat more than 2,000 people, and visit the Nepal Peace Pagoda. This three-tiered wooden construction is a remarkable building, handcrafted in Nepal from Terai Forest timbers from the country's southern jungles. Other highlights of the park, include restaurants, shops and fountains.
