Heritage trails

Brisbane's historic built environment - from the grand buildings of the Brisbane Central Business District to shops, schools, churches, factories and dwellings in our suburban neighbourhoods - make up a rich cultural landscape and help define the character of our city.

There are now 11 suburban heritage walking trails across Brisbane celebrating the stories of local suburbs, in addition to Aboriginal culture trails, the Reflections on the River Trail and the Kangaroo Point National History Project Trail.
