Art in Queensland - Beautiful One Day, Perfect the Next!

We moved to Queensland in January 2007. We were excited to be moving back to a city after living in the Hunter Valley for 10 years. It was with some trepidation that we ventured out into the South Bank Precinct as our only exposure to the area was World Expo in 1988.

To our pleasant surprise South Bank is a fantastic area for families, kids, parents and everyone in-between. You have a wonderful expansive view of the city and river, everything is well planned and most importantly, the main galleries, performing art centres and libraries are all in the same area of South Bank.

Most definitely Brisbane is now a city to rival Sydney and Melbourne as it seems to have a better balance between culture and lifestyle. The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is our favourite building and art space. Beautiful architecture, wonderful feeling of space, lovely large white walls for exhibiting and a great cafe as well.

Will bring you more from the city dubbed BrisVegas as soon as I get my Hasselblad 501c out and start photographing!!
