Brisbane’s creative heart beats in South Bank

Feel exhilarated by a show at QPAC, see the world from a new perspective at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, marvel at natural phenomena at the Queensland Museum, and be spellbound with all that the State Library of Queensland offers. Finish the visit with a wander through the beautiful bougainvillea-lined walkway in South Bank Parklands, sip cocktails from a cheeky laneway bar, or indulge in spectacular riverside dining.

Take a short stroll over one of three bridges that connect South Bank to the Brisbane’s city centre for international shopping, sky-high restaurants and a bustling brewery based in Brisbane’s revitalised Howard Smith Wharves precinct. Alternatively, embrace Brisbane’s casual cool with a short ferry ride to New Farm and Fortitude Valley. Here you’ll find Australian boutique shopping, carefully crafted coffee and breezy tree-lined streets perfect for brunching.
