Fortitude Valley (the Valley) special entertainment precinct
Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government amended noise and planning laws to create the Fortitude Valley special entertainment precinct. Read more about the background.
The precinct was created to ensure the long-term future of the music-based entertainment industry in the Valley without exposing residents or businesses to unreasonable levels of amplified music noise.
Experience the Valley Sound Machine, an online tool that lets you experience simulated noise levels at different times and places in the special entertainment area.
