South Bank Living
3 min read
A place where culture, cuisine, leisure and entertainment come together, nothing can compare to the electric energy of South Bank. Quite unlike the suburbia in Brisbane’s landscape, Southbank is the perfect spot for residents to enjoy the very best inner-city living has to offer.
The latest Mater Prize Home lottery has you in with a chance to take home a simply superb 5-star apartment home situated in glorious South Bank. So what can you look forward to with living in one of Brisbane’s most premium locations?
Let’s count the ways.
1. A Blend of Exquisite Flavours
Surround yourself with Brisbane’s best restaurants and bars.
Nothing compares to this vast selection of cuisine available at your fingertips. South Bank is a top spot for serious foodies, with a mixture of fine dining, casual bistros, cafés and fast-food joints to satisfy every craving and palate. You’ll enjoy flavours inspired from around the world, available in the same central location.
Streets for Foodies
Little Stanley Street and Grey Street are teeming with bars and restaurants you can hop between. Whether it’s a craving for late-night sushi, a breakfast smoothie to power your day or a drink by the river, South Bank will keep your nourished morning to night.
2. Serene Riverfront
Enjoy fabulous river views everywhere you turn.
Despite its inner-city status, South Bank shouldn’t be boxed in as simply fast-paced living. Positioned on the river, serenity is at its finest. You can take a walk or go for a run at any time with tranquil river views framed at your side. The river path continues right into the quirky suburb of West End, or you can take the Victoria Bridge into the CBD.
The South Bank Parklands has plenty of greenery to set up a picnic for any time of the day (BBQ facilities are available), and there’s an array of riverfront restaurants and bars where you can take in the exquisite scenery with a drink in hand. If you fancy taking a dip, Streets Beach (Australia’s only inner-city, man-made beach) is positioned perfectly by the river.
3. Free Events & Epic Entertainment
Fill up your weekends and nights.
You’ll never be short of things to do in South Bank. Every month of the year is packed with activities and events for all to enjoy. Free live music is regularly on the cards for a weekend afternoon, and special events will often be celebrated with a stunning fireworks display.
Shows and Exhibits
For your art, culture or history fix, South Bank is home to the art museum GOMA and the Queensland Museum and Science Centre. And a night out at the theatre is just walking distance away, with QPAC situated on Grey Street – the perfect position to grab something to eat or drink before catching a show!
Keep an eye on what’s on in South Bank each month so you don’t miss out.
4. Inner-City Gardening
Fresh produce for picking? Yes please.
Apartment living doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the pleasures of having a garden. The Epicurious Garden is South Bank’s very own communal greenery patch. If you’re a gardening or cooking enthusiast, you’re certain to take delight in what this garden has to offer. With the purpose of educating and inspiring, you’ll learn all about the produce and plant life growing in the garden and discover recipes on how to use fresh produce when cooking at home.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7am to 2pm, you have the opportunity to collect free produce to use for yourself. You’ll truly be able to taste the difference in cooking when you use freshly picked produce. Delicious.
Fancy all this and more? By purchasing a ticket, you’ll go in the running to win the latest Mater Prize Home in South Bank while also supporting Mater’s life-changing fundraising.
