One of the two Trixity trails exploring Brisbane, the Discover South Bank trail is a wonderful way to spend 2-3 hours in the cultural heart of Brisbane. Art galleries, museums, restaurants, bars and hidden gems around every corner, no wonder 11 million visitors each year make the journey.
The South Bank parklands were built following World Expo 88. The lovely Arbour, which is 1 km of over 400 curved steel columns creating a walkway covered with bougainvilleas, provides a beautiful shady walkway which you may find helpful at some point in the trail.
The Brisbane sign was originally built for the G20 summit in 2014, it was made out of plywood and was only intended to stand for 4 weeks. In 2015 it was reinforced which is just as well as we reckon if/when you pass it on your Trixity trail there will be people clambering all over it for that must-have holiday snap.
As with all of our trails you can stop the clock every time you enter a correct answer (just don’t request the next clue until you’re ready) which will give you plenty of time to take a dip in the man-made Streets Beach in the picture, well worth it on a hot day.
When you order your trail, you’ll be sent all of the info you require to make the most of the day discovering Brisbane’s South Bank. Here’s a little picture we took at the start point, it doesn’t require a spoiler alert and it won’t help you …. I just thought it was ‘different’. Maybe some of the locals will recognise it?
