Visitors to Brisbane can get a more intimate feel for the city by joining in on one of the scheduled tours which depart from the Queen Street Mall seven days a week at 10am. The new tours follow a seven day schedule, taking in a different aspect of the city each day, including public art, Queenslander houses, churches and shrines, heritage buildings, artful nature, cultural attractions and the Brisbane River. Each tour runs between two to four hours and is free, with visitors paying only for any public transport used during the tours, food and drinks and any applicable admission fees. The new Brisbane Greeter Daily Set Tours are being offered in addition to the more customised Greeter Tours that can be booked online at brisbanegreeters.com.au
A concentrated presentation of Australian collection highlights is on display during QAG’S Collection Storage Upgrade. This stunning salon hang includes some audience favourites—iconic paintings by Rupert Bunny, Vida Lahey, R Godfrey Rivers, Russell Drysdale and Nora Heysen, and many others.
