Characterized by striking design and architecture, these lush parklands comprise Brisbane's cultural heart. Suffering hard times at the end of World War II, South Bank has risen like a Phoenix from the flames. The timely arrival of the World Expo in 1988 and recent financial investment has seen the area flourish into a world-class recreation hub. From the State Library to the Maritime Museum to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre , the Parklands sprawl for 17 hectares along the banks of the Brisbane River . The striking man-made lagoon brings the beach to the City. Entertainment features regularly and Markets are held each weekend.
