Did you know a quarter of Brisbane residents were born overseas and, that more than 17 per cent of residents speak a language other than English at home? Brisbane City Council's My Brisbane campaign celebrates the diversity in our city by showcasing what our multicultural residents love about Brisbane.

As Australia’s New World City, Brisbane is truly multicultural and Brisbane City Council is committed to creating an inclusive Brisbane and improving the quality and value of services we provide for the community to make our city an even better place to live.
