Behind-the-Scenes at South Bank Parklands Tour


Location: South Bank Parklands

About the Event:

This was a fascinating tour that gave visitors an inside look at how the beautiful Parklands and famous Streets Beach are maintained for the enjoyment of residents and visitors to Brisbane. Visitors veiwed the underground operations compound, including the vast subterranean pool plant room, and learned how the pool water quality is maintained; they took a behind-the-scenes tour of Rain Bank, the largest stormwater harvesting facility in Australia and saw how stormwater from the surrounding catchment is transformed into clean, irrigation water for the lawns and gardens; and they learned about the iconic Arbour, including how it’s pruned to keep it in flower throughout the year.
