To celebrate the 30th anniversary of World Expo '88, Brisbane City Council has extended the self-guided World Expo '88 Public Art Trail to include additional Expo associated artworks and artefacts. Council has also undertaken a number of restorations and relocations of some of the artworks, giving residents and visitors better access to this fantastic cultural resource.

Many sites are located within walking distance of Brisbane’s Central Business District and two artworks are located at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha. Take a closer look at these iconic artworks and landmarks that give residents and visitors a sense of the celebration that World Expo '88 was and the legacy of this city-shaping event.
