Take a peek inside some of Brisbane’s iconic spaces during Brisbane Open House

If your work day commences when you step foot in the office, you're pretty lucky. More likely, it begins the second you open your eyes – checking emails and making phone calls on the commute to work in an effort to tick off another couple of things on the never ending to-do list.

If you're guilty of it (we all are), Brisbane Open House is the perfect opportunity to stop, observe and appreciate some of the amazing architecture and stunning spaces that make this fine city of ours so unique. more

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner has announced plans with Brisbane City Council to turn the current site of the Victoria Park Golf Course into a massive public park.
