Part 8 - South Bank Parklands

Welcome to South Bank, the place that hosted the World Expo in 1988. It is also Brisbane's most visited tourist venue.

For every photo below I'll elaborate briefly as my time is very precious now haha.

MORNING

Queensland State Library (left picture) and Queensland Performing Arts Centre (right).

(left) Queensland Art Gallery corridor and (right) ground outside Queensland Conservatorium at Griffith University.

Queensland Performing Arts Centre and North Quay skyline.

South Bank and Brisbane City.

AFTERNOON

Traffic jam in one direction only.

Went to the city and now crossing Victoria Bridge back to South Bank.

South Bank's Cultural Centre Busway Station. Once took a bus from here to my workplace at East Brisbane suburb, next to the more-famous Wollonggabba suburb in Zone 1.

Whole afternoon chillin' at South Bank. One parkland after another. Quite boring.

Unlucky Me. South Bank's most popular attraction - an artificial white sand beach was closed for maintenance when I was there.

(clockwise) Restaurants; Suncorp Piazza and Amphitheatre (also closed for renovation?); wading pool; and cafes (see those people there waving back at Me!)

Everything seems to be undergoing maintenance works while I was there. Argghh

Again city view. Afternoon sun, serene riverside, mangrove swamp (wow unique!) bright blue sky and clean river water. Photos from South Bank promenade. [I guess I've to post this image larger]

EVENING

South Bank's entertainment and shopping street! Recently, I watched Transformers and Harry Potter here.

Goodbye!
