Commissariat Store

The Commissariat Store is one of the two oldest buildings in Brisbane, the other one being the Old Windmill. Steeped in history, the building was built by convicts in the 1820s. As new facets of the building come to light (like the recently excavated brick-made drains in the basement), the building becomes more and more intriguing for the common man. Used as an immigrant house in the past, the Store now functions as the headquarters of the Royal Historical Society of Queensland. A museum and the well-stocked library are also located in the building. The Commissariat Store is being used to host cultural events like book launches and music concerts too.

Brisbane City Hall

Opened in 1930, the three-story Brisbane City Hall is the site of a number of the city's attractions. Events are held in the circular concert hall throughout the year, and guests enjoy great acoustics from the impressive gallery seating. Visitors to Brisbane City Hall can sit near the on-guard lions at the front entrance and count the Corinthian columns across the facade or relax in the City Hall and King George Squares. Of course, a trip to Brisbane City Hall isn't complete without a visit to the Museum of Brisbane, which adds touches of art and history to the must-see landmark.

Philip Bacon Art Gallery

The Philip Bacon Art Gallery is situated upon Arthur Street within the busy and ‘happening’ Fortitude Valley in Brisbane. It was founded in 1974 and was designed by the architect, Cox Rayner. A popular art hub of the town, this gallery has featured artworks by Michael Kmit, Robert Dickerson, Lawrence Daws and Charles Blackman, some of the best artists of the country. Today it is the city’s leading commercial gallery that is as endowed in its stockrooms as it is in the rich variety of artist exhibits.

South Bank Parklands

South Bank Parklands are Brisbane's cultural epicenter with many attractions such as riverside walking trails, grassy lawns, the Wheel of Brisbane, Nepal Peace Pagoda and plazas for various performances. The area flourished into a world-class recreation hub after hosting the World Expo in 1988. From the State Library to the Maritime Museum and Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Parklands cover a sprawling 17 hectares (42 acres) along the Brisbane River. Festivals and local events are regularly held at the site's plazas. The site has rainforest and grassy areas, as well as a striking man-made lagoon that brings the beach to the city.

The University of Queensland Art Museum

The University of Queensland Art Museum was founded in 1976 and is now a popular name among the art enthusiasts in the city. It began as the small but valuable Darnell Collection that was named after its beneficiary. It boasts of one of the largest collections of public art collection in Queensland. The museum displays both contemporary and historic works in an effort to explore their corresponding culture and art. It is also the source of many useful public arts programs.

The Workshops Rail Museum

The Workshops Rail Museum is an information center displaying a range of interesting exhibits from steam engines to railway carriages. The line-up of restored historic engines attracts crowds of all ages. A part of the philosophy behind the many collections is to make it accessible for both the current and future generations. All in all, this is a perfect spot to enjoy with your little ones.
