There are lots of places to eat & drink and enough toilet/change room facilities. However, it can get really busy and when it's hot, it's nearly impossible... More

A clean quality man made beach stretching for over 100 meters. The water is clear clean and refreshing. Nice to have the relation of a beach in the city and watch the hustle and bustle if the city while you top your tan up or just going for a relaxing dip.

There's lots to see and do at South Bank and in the immediate surrounding areas. We took the kids out for a day trip to the aquatic activity park next to Streets Beach. Everyone loved it.

Many beautiful walking paths to take with breath taking views of the city and waterways. There are several spots to stop and have a bite to eat and a cold drink.

The walk along the river here was a highlight of Brisbane. Certain parts are overrun with children, but mostly they stay in the pools alongside the river, so adults are safe if they stick to the paths. There is a market nearby on Saturdays.
