Southbank and its surrounding parklands are Brisbane's most important cultural precints as of to date. Drawing over 5 million visitors per year, Southbank is famous for being a pristine haven of natural beauty in the city. It used to be a meeting place for the traditional landowners, now it consists a mixture of rainforests, grassed lands, plazas, and a riverfront promenade. Aside from that, what keeps people come back for more is the man-made sandy Streets Beach. Southbank, in addition, hosts a number of annual cultural events and festivals. So be sure to come prepared for the events to happen in the area.
