Every day, Brisbane City Council works with residents and communities to make the Brisbane of tomorrow even better than the Brisbane of today.

By building five new green bridges, we’re getting more cars off the road and giving you more choice when it comes to travel.

We’re turning Victoria Park Golf Course into a new park, giving you more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane.

We’re planting more trees in suburban parks, creating tree-lined boulevards and providing households with a free green waste bin.

While free off-peak travel means more opportunities for older residents to move around the city and connect with family and friends.

We’re creating a city of neighbourhoods by bringing new life to suburban retail precincts while backing small business with more support and lower fees.

And we’re making it easier to buy your first home with a one-year 50 per cent rates discount for first home buyers, while keeping minimum rates the lowest in the region.

Find out how we’re making the Brisbane of tomorrow even better than the Brisbane of today.
