This man-made beach is actually a lagoon, surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches, trees and gardens. There are rocky creeks to cool off in and plenty of shady spots, play areas and picnic tables for you to enjoy, and all alongside the Brisbane River.
South Bank in Brisbane Australia is also a great place to visit if you are seeking great restaurants and entertainment. Activities at South Bank Parklands include weekend markets and a program of events staged at the Suncorp Piazza. You will also enjoy the street entertainers.
