South Brisbane, Queensland
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
South Brisbane is an inner city suburb of Brisbane, Australia located on the southern bank of the Brisbane River, directly connected to the central business district by the Victoria Bridge and the Goodwill Bridge.
Modern public transport services include suburban train stations at South Brisbane and South Bank and South East Busway stations at Cultural Centre, South Bank, and Mater Hill. CityCat ferry services link South Brisbane to other riverside suburbs.
Known, along with West End and Highgate Hill as Kurilpa (Water Rat) to the local indigenous people, the area remains important in indigenous life. Musgrave Park has been for many years a place of congregation for the Murri peoples of south-east Queensland. It is the site of a bora ring that has been buried.
South Brisbane was established when a construction boom followed the opening of the railway to the south in 1884 with its terminus in the area. The suburb was previously heavily industrialised, but its regeneration began when it was selected as the the location of World Expo '88, which was built on former wharves and industrial land. Following Expo '88, South Bank Parklands was built on the former Expo site.
South Brisbane has emerged as fashionable, high density, modern residential area, given its proximity to the city centre and good public transport links.
South Bank Parklands is a major feature of the suburb and popular with tourists and Brisbane residents alike. Some of Brisbane's most popular restaurants are located on Little Stanley Street where crowds gather every Friday night to dance the salsa outdoors. Nearby Grey Street has one of Brisbane's most popular cinemas, several restaurants & coffee shops and two five star hotels.
