Stanley Street Plaza, South Brisbane, QLD 4101
Streets Beach is a South Bank icon and a must-visit while you’re in the Parklands. As Australia’s only inner-city, man-made beach, boasts a sparkling lagoon surrounded by white, sandy beaches and sub-tropical plants. Streets Beach is free to use and is patrolled by qualified lifeguards all year round.
South Bank is Brisbane’s premier lifestyle and cultural destination. Located on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, its 17 hectares of lush parklands, world-class eateries, stunning river views and hundreds of delightful events all year round make it the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Head down to the Boat Pool on any given day and you’ll see people of all ages splashing around in the cool, blue water and lapping up some of Queensland’s famous sunshine. Similar to Streets Beach, the Boat Pool is free to use and is patrolled by qualified lifeguards all year round.
Aquativity is a fun, interactive water-play park right in the heart of Brisbane’s South Bank. It is specially designed to encourage families and children to come together and enjoy the outdoors. It celebrates the city’s close relationship with the Brisbane River.
Aquativity features educational play elements referencing the river and helps create an early understanding of the water cycle and its preservation.
Aquativity also highlights the native fish and mammal species of mullet and dugong, the interesting pattern of the river catchments and the importance of indigenous, environmental and urban elements of our relationship to the river.
Open on weekends and school holidays from 10am until 5pm, Aquativity also works within the existing pool system, and water is recycled for use within The Parklands.
The lifeguard’s hours change throughout the year, so please contact the South Bank Visitor Centre on (07) 3156 6366 to see when they are patrolling.
