“No trip to Brissie would be complete without going to Southbank Parklands. Rich in cultural history, South Bank’s Parklands saw their first glimpse of promise in its post-industrial-period when World Expo 88 opened the area up for public visitation. Enjoyed by so many and seen as a valuable public space to Brisbane after Expo, South Bank’s Parklands were redeveloped for public enjoyment, and that lush inner-city oasis is still enjoyed by the public today.”
