Live, Love, South Brisbane, QLD

A bustling cultural hotspot by day and thriving foodie scene by night, South Brisbane is renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and diverse entertainment offerings. With picturesque views over Brisbane’s CBD, it’s not hard to see why this culturally-rich area attracts a crowd. Home to some of Brisbane’s most renowned museums, galleries and performing arts centre as well as reputable medical facilities and educational institutions, this postcode-proud neighbourhood has established itself as a firm favourite.
The South Bank precinct is known for its dining and bar culture, with some of Brisbane’s most notable chefs at the helm of top-tier restaurants clustered along the river’s edge, many boasting unbeatable views across the Brisbane river and the city horizon. From the day and night designer and lifestyle markets with live performances and gourmet food offerings on Stanley Street to the beloved Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), locals are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment.
Add the generous public green spaces, meandering walking paths that hug the river’s edge and the famous South Bank Lagoon, a man-made beach on the river’s edge to the mix and locals have very little reason to venture far from home.There is no shortage of apartments, many of which boast river views, and South Brisbane still has small pockets of suburban living along the boundaries of neighbouring West End, Woolloongabba and Highgate Hill. Although locals have access to world-class facilities on their doorstep, when they need to they can access Brisbane’s CBD via the South Bank Precinct ferry terminal.
A vibrant hub every day of the week, South Brisbane offers an unparalleled lifestyle for those who love to be amongst the action.
