South Bank is located on the eastern side of the mighty Brisbane River, framed by the Goodwill Bridge and the architecturally acclaimed Kurilpa Bridge, and is the heart of Brisbane's outdoor lifestyle.
Spanning an impressive 42-hectares, South Bank is home to major cultural attractions and art galleries, tranquil outdoor spaces, Australia's only beach in a city, world-class events and some of Brisbane’s best restaurants and cafes. Since its official formation in 1992 after World Expo 88, it has been embraced as Brisbane’s ‘Living Room’ – a local hang-out and one of South East Queensland’s most popular tourist destinations.
It’s increasingly hard to imagine Brisbane without South Bank. An estimated 10 million people visit the precinct each year, positioning it as one of the top tourist attractions in Brisbane.
Our Vision for South Bank is:
To create and manage the best urban precinct in the world.
The vision builds on and maintains the attachment and ownership developed by Queenslander's as they embrace South Bank and also aspires for recognition as one of the world’s great public places.
