Hi I haven't been to Brisbane since I was a child and was wondering is south bank the place to stay and go? Is there a lot to do there with a toddler?

Lunch at Southbank Brisbane???
Eta, if you're going in December they also have some fantastic Xmas activities and light shows and you can walk over the bridge to the town hall and they have this fantastic laser and music show that my kids absolutely love (so do the adults in the family).

There is lots to do. There's playgrounds, the "beach" and pool. There's the Sciencecentre (depending on the age of your toddler) and museum. Not to mention the city cat/city ferry stops for a ride on the river. Also the wheel of Brisbane.

Great thanks guys I think I might plan a surprise trip for my dh's birthday.
My ds is 16 months old. Any recommendations on where to stay?
Will 3 days be enough to see it all?

The Christmas night Markets will be starting soon, I'll be taking the kids to those, much more bearable in the Summer then the day ones.

We ended up going to ... The Plough. Have been there a million times before, and don't really like the food, but the choices all became too much and I knew that my parents would be comfortable there (they're not all that adventurous food wise), and wouldn't have to worry about my rowdy kids.
I am planning on checking out Ahmets with DH though, I think he'll be into that. And Cat74 we went to Aquitane last time we were at Southbank for lunch, the food was great, but my kids were not very well behaved, all felt a bit uncomfortable...
We also had a nice swim at Streets beach, was awesome!

LittleBug'sMum, you won't be disappointed with Ahmet's, especially for dinner. It has a lively ambience, excellent waiting staff who tend to you the whole time and the food is fabulous. Make sure you go on an empty stomach though! When we're sans kids and it's just been DH and I for dinner, we usually get one of the banquets for two, it's really good value and comes out like high tea on the same sort of tier system, so delish!
I must admit Aquitane is lovely too, but I wouldn't take my kids there.
You picked the right day for a swim at Streets Beach today, was certainly the weather for it!

Ahmets was fined $25,000 this year for breaching food and safety standards. Hopefully they have improved since.
