South Bank is a hive of activity whenever we have visited. Its Recreational areas, parks and walk ways line the banks of Brisbane River with the Wheel of Brisbane standing out on the bank. Around the vast parklands stretching along the bank for over 1.5.kms, cultural centres – galleries, museums, performing arts centre, cinema – along with many restaurants and bars. This day, with the weather so warm, families were enjoying the inland swimming areas, including one created with beach sand. All along the main walkway, the large metal structure lining the walk with its metal beams reaching up and bending as if it were itself growing, and covered in flowering bougainvillea. Within the nearby concentration of restaurants, the street was full of marquees for market day, with stallholders selling their craft and wares. A very busy place!
