Green Flag Award

River Quay

Brisbane can be proud of South Bank Parklands – it is one of just seven parks in Australia to hold the Green Flag Award, an international accreditation given to the world’s best green spaces.

To qualify for the award, the Parklands was judged against eight key selection criteria; being a welcoming place, being healthy, safe and secure, being clean and well maintained, sustainability, conservation and heritage, community involvement, marketing and management.

The award process is stringent and demonstrates that South Bank Parklands boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities. 

Other parks to have won the award around the globe include Roma Street Parkland, London’s Royal Parks, Sydney’s Centennial Park and The Redwoods in Rotorua, New Zealand.

To maintain Green Flag Award status, South Bank Parklands must undergo an annual benchmarking process from international accreditors. For more information about the Green Flag Award, head to their website.
