Bris­bane Greeters

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On Brisbane -

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 bris­bane­


“Lu­cent” draws to­gether works from the Abo­rig­i­nal and Pa­cific col­lec­tions, il­lu­mi­nat­ing con­nec­tions and dif­fer­ences be­tween the cul­tures. Evo­ca­tions of light and its ab­sence are ex­plored through works rang­ing from in­stal­la­tions of great majesty to in­ti­mate adorn­ments for the body. Mul­ti­ple feath­ered “Banumbirr (Morn­ing star)” poles as­so­ci­ated with cre­ation sto­ries en­gage with a 22-me­tre black “Ngatu Ta Uli (bark­cloth)” used within mourn­ing rit­u­als, as do dec­o­ra­tive and cer­e­mo­nial pearl­shell pen­dants from both cul­tures and tex­tiles.
