South Bank is Brisbane’s premier lifestyle and cultural destination. Located on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, it is open 365 days a year and attracts an estimated 14 million visitors annually.

South Bank stretches from Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art in the north to the Queensland Maritime Museum in the south and is famous for its diverse mix of entertainment, recreation and leisure activities that are all within walking distance of each other. Just some of the precinct’s highlights include inner-city parklands; a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and bars; world-class museums and galleries; a performing arts centre; a cinema; five-star hotels and the Wheel of Brisbane.

Home to hundreds of events each year, South Bank is continually evolving to create new and exciting experiences for locals and visitors alike.
