The South Bank Lifestyle Markets - one of Brisbane's best
[ADVERT]It is no secret that I love going to markets and the South Bank Lifestyle Markets are some of the best in Brisbane in my opinion. Located in the Stanley Street Plaza, the markets are held every Friday evening from 5pm to 10pm and all day Saturday (10am to 5pm) and Sunday (9am to 5pm).
So when you have finished walking along the riverside or swimming in the "beach" why not hop over to the markets for a wander. You can pick up really unique gifts and souvenirs, like homemade candles in teacups for the ladies in your life or a funny t-shirt for the men.
There is also great homemade jewellery galore. So much so that it is hard to know which cute ring or funky earrings to choose. Some of the one-of-a-kind rings on offer include moustaches, owls and foxes. Yes, moustaches.
You can also get your tarot cards read or pick up a painting from a great local artist. There really is something for everyone at the South Bank markets, so make sure you have a look the next time you make it across the river on the weekend.
And remember, when you are done and you are worn out from doing the market loop you can always relax and enjoy a meal at one of the main great eateries around the area.
