Southbank Parklands

You'll notice when you first arrive in Brisbane that the city is heavily focussed on the outdoors. Brisbane boasts sunny weather in winter and very warm days in summer. As such, outdoor picnics, sporting games and swimming comes naturally to the locals here. While in town, watch a game of rugby league or cricket, or take a dip at South Bank's man-made beach that overlooks the city.

While Brisbane's outdoors offer an array of activities, inside the city you'll find a bustling world of trendy cafes, boutique shops and cultural attractions. One of the city's most prized assets is the Gallery Of Modern Art. Boasting world class and innovative exhibitions, GOMA has something to captivate all types of gallery goers, from experts to art novices and even the kids. Next door to GOMA you'll find the State Library, an ideal venue for entertaining and inspiring the kids, while close by you can catch a play or musical at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
