Sunny Southbank

Ahh Southbank. Home to the ferris wheel of questionable importance, hordes of tourists, lively markets, the mouth watering Max Brenner ( is it ever not busy?!), the cheap as chips Southbank cineplex, the man made Streets Beach, more restaurants, bars & cafes than you can poke a stick at from cheap & cheerful to haute cuisine, playgrounds for the young at heart, the piazza, the annual host of Buddha's birthday celebrations and a beautiful stroll along the Brisbane River.

Often crowded ( although, "crowded" by Australian standards is really not that crowded at all) but always cheerful.

Note: Ignore the date in the bottom right hand corner. My camera malfunctioned and it seems I didn't reset the date. Oops!

Happy Birthday Buddha!

Nowhere in Brisbane gets into the swing of celebrating Buddha's birthday quite like Southbank does. The next Buddha's Birthday celebration is May 6-13, 2013.
Southbank is home to many celebrations, the biggest, Brisbane's annual Riverfire - a night the city stops to enjoy spectacular fireworks over the Brisbane River. Southbank is a great vantage point, but be prepared for crowds!
