This year, Christmas at South Bank is Made with Love.
Sections of Brisbane’s most loved public place will be transformed into a wonderland of authentic
experiences where people from all walks of life can create, indulge and celebrate. Whether it is creating memories or even handmade gifts, Made with Love: A South Bank Christmas – presented by South Bank Corporation – will engage and delight the whole community.
It’s been a long, hard year for Brisbane locals and South Bank Corporation believes that Christmas is all about joy, hope, love and giving so this year we have done away with the mass‐produced, commercial idea of Christmas to refocus on the feeling behind the holiday.
An inspiring series of classes will be held at the Christmas Craft Studio (Suncorp Piazza) where from 10 December, twice a day, expert artisans will educate participants of all ages on how to craft their own lovingly handmade gifts − many from up‐cycled and sustainable materials. For the full list of crafty workshops on offer visit the South Bank website.
Some of our talented BrisStylers will be running workshops as part of Made with Love.....

From Wednesday 14 December, visitors can also take time out with friends and family at the Under the Trees lawn (Little Stanley).
Soak up the ambience and luxuriate in the holiday spirit by relaxing in our beautifully styled picnic area – complete with bar and entertainment – or challenge a newfound friend to a spot of croquet or lawn games.
