Southbank was created from the previous site of Expo 88.
It's gone through a couple of facelifts - like any good girl - but was eventually redesigned into a combination residential / commercial / parklands precinct.
It has an amazing feel to the area. I was very lucky to work in a building right next to Southbank for a while and it has an amazing array of restaurants, cafes, and people spaces. I loved it. I would live there IF I could afford it.
Thankfully there are many public areas that were designed and incorporated into it.
I love the area. Amazing boardwalk. Great picnic areas and wonderful greenery.
