More to see and do in Brisbane
Brisbane is a great place to live, work and relax with lots to see and do for everyone. Brisbane City Council is creating even more lifestyle and leisure opportunities to give you more places to go and things to do across our great city.
A liveable city is about more than just jobs and better roads. More leisure options mean exciting events and vibrant local markets, with better facilities and venues for all ages to enjoy.
Council helps deliver more than 50,000 markets, festivals and events each year and we're delivering 27 free outdoor gyms, two new world-class BMX facilities and five new aqua parks. We've extended library opening hours and are working to build or upgrade nine libraries, while making Mt Coot-tha a leisure and adventure precinct with a new zipline, picnic areas and walking trails.
