South Bank is proud to be an accessible precinct for all visitors. We are continuously working to support Brisbane City Council’s vision of creating an accessible city for everyone by 2031. More details about how this is being done across the city can be found here. If you have any questions about access or facilities at South Bank, please contact the South Bank Visitor Centre on 07 3156 6366.
South Bank’s underground car park (located on Little Stanley Street) has several disabled parking bays, which are conveniently located near the car park lifts at the northern and southern ends of level B1. Head here for more details on the underground car park, including prices.
Bathrooms and Showers
Standard disabled bathrooms are located at The Courier-Mail Piazza and Stanley Street Plaza, while a specially designed disabled bathroom that includes a shower, ceiling hoist and a change table/shower trolley is located behind the Central Cafes. Please note that to use the ceiling hoist in this bathroom, you will need to bring your own sling with loop attachments. The key for the ceiling hoist can be collected from the South Bank Visitor Centre, which is located in Stanley Street Plaza. Head here for a map of all bathroom facilities at South Bank.
