It's exploring our own backyard – finding new things to see and do without going far. It’s life in our suburbs – the friendly faces and shopkeepers who know us by name. It’s our local businesses thriving – popping down the road for a bite to eat or stopping in on the way home. 

These are the people and places that make Brisbane better. And it’s now more important than ever to show our local businesses that they’re not alone.
