It’s a positive attitude and creative confidence that makes Brisbane a genuine new-world city. It’s a forward thinking destination, inventing its future as an emerging global city.
And, even though Brisbane is rapidly developing, we still like to do things a little differently, maintaining a youthful enthusiasm that allows innovative ideas – from the playful (world-class sporting venues) to the contemporary (a magnificent creative arts precinct) – to flourish.
There’s so much fun to be had in Brisbane this summer, and you can find all your pre- and post-match activities in one place: www.visitbrisbane.com.au
You’ll love the dazzling art and culture scene at the Queensland Cultural Precinct, South Bank, including GoMA – the largest Gallery of Modern Art in Australia. Find the best of local, national and international designers on Queen Street Mall, or just sit back and take a cruise along the river on a CityCat, stopping off at Brisbane’s urban villages along the way.
Check out what’s going on in Brisbane’s buzzing urban villages. From the emerging live music scene in Fortitude Valley to the cool and quirky corners of West End, you’ll discover a whole new side of Brisbane. You could even take a day trip out to Moreton Bay and Islands, which has the second largest sand island in the world, or you can relax with a tour of the Country Valleys and Scenic Rim.
Prepare for a culinary experience that is as diverse as the people who live here. With an innovative array of fine dining, contemporary restaurants, exotic international cuisine and laid back cafés, pubs and bars – all served up in dazzling city riverside locations, buzzing urban villages and elegant historical buildings.
Style, sophistication and luxury – Brisbane’s wide selection of quality hotels and motels has it all. From inner city chic to urban village comfort, you’ll find all of your accommodation needs are catered for in Brisbane. If your budget is more modest, Brisbane more than caters for you too.
