Aquativity at South Bank
Aquativity Key Messages
The interactive water park, which can accommodate wheel chair access, is located on the southern side of Streets Beach and has been a favourite amongst children and families since opening in 2007. Fountains, water features and decorative elements in the playground aim to educate about water cycles, simulating summer storms, rain and floods, and the interesting pattern of the catchments highlights the complexity of our river systems. There is also a bush stream which connects to Aquativity and runs through a large section of the southern part of the Parklands, South Bank. FREE ENTRY is located adjacent to streets beach.

Throughout the entirety of human history, we have been fascinated with the power of water from its life-giving properties, to its graceful beauty, to the pure joy derived from splashing around in a flowing river. At South Bank, the magical charm of water is captured at The Parklands interactive water-play park, Aquativity. A great location for children and families to play, learn and enjoy the outdoors, the park is open daily from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Aquativity features educational play elements based upon the Brisbane River system and helps to create an early understanding of the water cycle and its preservation. Immersing children in an interactive experience, Aquativity also highlights the area’s native fish, such as mullet and catfish, and mammal species like the dugong. The important relationship between indigenous peoples and the environmental and urban elements of the river is emphasised.
