Characterized by striking design and architecture, these lush parklands comprise Brisbane's cultural heart. Suffering hard times at the end of World War II, South Bank has risen like a Phoenix from the flames. The timely arrival of the World Expo in 1988 and recent financial investment has seen the area flourish into a world-class recreation hub. From the State Library to the Maritime Museum to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Parklands sprawl for 17 hectares along the banks of the Brisbane River. The striking man-made lagoon brings the beach to the City. Entertainment features regularly and Markets are held each weekend.
