WELCOME TO BRISBANE
Happy New Year! Welcome to Brisbane in January!
Brisbane is bustling in summer with plenty to see and do. Kerry Heaney explores the best fun to be had in the city in her “Super Summer Beats” feature (page 12), including Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) Turns 10 Summer Festival and exploring South Bank Parklands.
Turn to the Where Now guide (page 4) for this month’s must-see events, exhibitions, concerts and performances in Brisbane, including “Fawlty Towers Live” at QPAC, the award-winning “Matilda The Musical” and the “Sugar Spin: you, me, art and everything” exhibition at the GOMA.
We’ve got Brisbane’s bustling precincts covered in this issue from the riverside attractions of South Bank (page 14) to the boutiques of the Emporium (page 16), to the sensational views and food at River Quay (page 24).
Explore the Mt Coot-tha region and discover the Brisbane Lookout, Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium, Summit Restaurant and more (page 20).
Inside Where Brisbane you’ll find our guide to the area’s best shopping, dining and attractions.
If you are also travelling south, then you are in luck, as our magazine includes a comprehensive guide to the best the Gold Coast has to offer.
However you choose to spend your time here, we hope you enjoy your stay in brilliant Brisbane!
