If you’re like us, you’re probably still adjusting to the fact that it’s the King’s Birthday instead of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday now! Nevertheless, we’re happy to have the public holiday, and to help you make the most of the long weekend we have rounded up the best things to see, eat, and do in South Bank!
There is no better way to relax into your long weekend than to set yourself up with an epic picnic at Sunday Social on the Green while listening to the smooth tunes of the Groove or Die trio. Pro-tip: get yourself a luxe picnic hamper from one of the retailers at River Quay. Trust us, it’ll make your Sunday Social experience that much more enjoyable!
Bargain hunters and lovers of unique finds, we’ve got the perfect activity for you this long weekend! We are of course talking about the Collective Markets at South Bank that run from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon on Little Stanley Street. You’ll find everything from delicious eats, art, collectibles, fashion, and much more! If you’re on the hunt for a unique gift or just to treat yourself to a leisurely stroll and shop - this is the weekend spot for you!
