The parklands were developed on the World Expo 88 site on the bank of the Brisbane River and have become the focal point in Brisbane for many public and private celebrations. Winding its way through the parklands is the Grand Arbour, a kilometre long structure consisting of 443 steel posts that twist and turn, supporting the bougainvillea that flourishes in Brisbane’s subtropical climate.
