Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Brisbane Region / Brisbane / South Bank Parklands
Sitting along the Brisbane River, South Bank Parklands sits in the heart of Brisbane. Towering over the park at 60 m (197 ft), the Wheel of Brisbane Ferris wheel offers you a panorama of the city and its surrounding.

Here you can swim in chlorinated fresh water and relax under the shade of a palm tree.
