Just across Brisbane CBD, South Brisbane is trendy, arty and animated. However, it was only in the late 80s that the area was reinvented – from the industrial port area to the busy and vibrant South Brisbane it is today. From the wharves, warehouses and factories, South Bank is now teeming with restaurants, cafés and recreational areas. The suburb is popular for its endless entertainment choices, pulsating nightlife, strong cultural vibe, excellent food and great commuting options.
Given its drastic transformation from the extremes, South Brisbane attracts the grungy, arty and adventurous folks. Students, professionals, young families, artists, hipsters, fashionistas and singles converge in South Brisbane. 84.1% of the neighbourhood’s residents are within the productive years of 15 to 64 years old. The median age is 30 and 7.3% of its residents are 65 years old and above. Only 29.2% of its residents are married, 56.9% of which doesn’t have children.

If you like South Brisbane then we recommend you look at the neighbouring suburb of West End and Brisbane CBD.

The Parklands is a sprawling 17 hectares of fun and entertainment that includes gardens, lawns, playgrounds, picnic areas and walking tracts. The centre of attraction is the South Bank Streets Beach. The man-made resort includes sandy beaches, tropical plants and crystal-clear blue waters. To see the best views of the river and the city, the Wheel of Brisbane will carry riders 200 feet up in its enclosed gondolas. The Musgrave Park is located at the centre of South Brisbane. The park hosts city events like the National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Celebration, Brisbane Gay Pride Parade and the Paniyiri Greek Festival.
