With stunning natural assets and a subtropical alfresco lifestyle, Brisbane is an urban metropolis with a relaxed vibe.
QAGOMA is part of the Cultural Precinct – an innovative arts district at Brisbane's South Bank that houses the state's major cultural institutions including the Gallery, State Library of Queensland, Queensland Performing Arts, and Queensland Museum. This unique Cultural Precinct is adjacent to the South Bank Parklands and the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Brisbane is the quintessential Queensland city: understated, unpretentious and with a welcoming, laidback feel that flips the traditional city experience on its head. Brisbane is a city full of surprises. Beyond the Cultural Precinct, embrace the outdoor lifestyle or dine riverside along South Bank Parklands or Howard Smith Wharves, go shopping in the Brisbane city centre, soak up the eclectic culture of West End, visit James St and Fortitude Valley's vibrant boutiques and bars or discover the city's many other thriving districts. Find out how you can explore the city like a local, including some Brisbane’s best laneways. Further afield, explore the lush surrounding hinterland or the sandy beaches of Moreton and North Stradbroke Islands.
