Getting to South Bank

Catching a train to South Bank is by far the easiest way to get there. The South Bank station is located conveniently aside the Parklands and rail travel is free for children aged 5 and under. Alternatively, many buses stop at South Brisbane and there are also ample car parking stations nearby.

Other things to do while you’re there

There’s a lot to see and do at South Bank, so it’s worthwhile turning Little Days Out into bigger ones.

Have a BBQ or picnic lunch

Lovely views over the Brisbane River will be enjoyed when you sit and enjoy lunch at one of South Bank’s family-friendly picnic spots. If parents want to relax while the little ones play, remember that Riverside Green Playground, River Quay Green and Picnic Island Playground are licensed from 10am-8pm daily, except during major events.

Take a dip

Which pool will you choose for a quick swim? South Bank is known for its man-made lagoon, Streets Beach, that brings a bit of the coast to the city but there’s also the Boat Pool and Aquatvitiy area for water fun on a sunny Brisbane day.

Epicurious Gardens

A tour through this ornamental garden is enjoyable and educational. Learning about growing fresh produce in Brisbane might be all it takes to inspire your littlie’s green thumb. Samples of the fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs are also available if your visit falls on a harvesting day.
