In a prime position on the southern bank of the Brisbane River, South Brisbane is a cultural hub. Famous for the sprawling South Bank Parklands, it’s a vibrant and trendy area that attracts couples, professionals and young families.
South Brisbane residents have everything at their fingertips. There’s a range of dining and entertainment options to choose from (many with river views), and The Markets Shopping Centre and Macarthur Central cater to most needs. Queens Plaza and Wintergarden Centre are nearby. The suburb’s green spaces include Kurilpa Point Park and Musgrave Park. It also features museums, libraries and art galleries, as well as the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
As for schools, there are three in the immediate area - Brisbane State High School, Somerville House and St Laurence’s College – and dozens more in the surrounding suburbs. For tertiary students, South Brisbane is home to Griffith University and Southbank Institute of Technology.
The CBD is a short drive, bus or ferry ride across the river, making the area ideal for those travelling to the city for work or play. The train station offers commuters easy access to various areas in Brisbane and beyond.
