South Brisbane (Brisbane, Australia)

South Brisbane is a Fun Place to Be in Queensland’s Capital City

Boasting arts, culture, museums and beautiful parks, you won’t want to miss South Brisbane when you visit the vibrant capital of subtropical Queensland. This lively inner city suburb hugs the south bank of the Brisbane River and is connected to Brisbane’s central business district by the Victoria Bridge, plus two car-free bridges. South Brisbane is dominated by impressive cultural facilities that occupy modern buildings built during a wave of regeneration before the World Expo was held in 1988. Further highlights include top dining options serving international dishes, and the man-made sandy shores and lagoon of Streets Beach, which brings a taste of the Australian beach-going experience into the heart of the city.

South Brisbane is the City’s Cultural Nerve Centre

Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct stretches along the riverbank in South Brisbane, featuring an array of arts and performance venues. Culture vultures can explore the Gallery of Modern Art and the adjacent Queensland Art Gallery, and the natural history exhibits at the Queensland Museum and Science Centre. For ballet, drama and comedy, there are theatres at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Offering a green escape, the riverside South Bank Parklands host popular restaurants, the River Quay Green South Bank outdoor venue for performing arts, the tranquil Nepal Peace Pagoda, and the Queensland Maritime Museum. Meanwhile, the Epicurious Garden of herbs and vegetables offers visitors free edible samples, while Picnic Island is the perfect place for outdoor feasts.

Your South Brisbane bucket list should also include a selfie beside the colourful Brisbane Sign with the downtown skyline behind you, and a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane observation wheel for sky-high city views. If you’re feeling peckish, head to Grey Street or Little Stanley Street for upscale restaurants. Alternatively, Boundary Street has restaurants serving international food. There’s everything from authentic Indian and Middle Eastern restaurants to Greek tavernas and Vietnamese noodle bars.

Don’t Miss Brisbane’s Annual Festival

Visitors who come to Brisbane in September will be rewarded by the city’s annual festival being in full swing. The Brisbane Festival is a three-week jamboree of classical and contemporary music, comedy, theatre and dance. Events take place citywide, and many of the top performances are held in South Brisbane’s arts venues. The festival culminates in a huge fireworks display that usually attracts massive crowds to the riverbank in search of the perfect vantage point from which to see the city skyline lit up in dramatic fashion. Another seasonal highlight of South Brisbane can be found in the adjacent district of Woolloongabba, where cricket fans visiting during the summer can savour the big game experience at the legendary Gabba stadium.
