BRISBANE FESTIVAL ~ September 8th – 29th 2012

21 Sep

This year’s Brisbane Festival is on until the 29th September, where it ends with the big bang of Sunsuper Riverfire!

If you are in the vicinity of the Brisbane River, you’d be a fool to miss this spectacular event! For those on a tight budget, there are plenty of free activities and sights to marvel at across South Bank.

Every night from 7pm, sit back, relax, and enjoy the Santos GLNG City of Lights laser and special effects show from the Santos GLNG Lounge in the cultural forecourt at South Bank. Later on, wander over to the Wunder Bar, at QPAC’s Cascade Court, for a drink or two and some cool tunes.

Make your way back to the Cultural Forecourt to take in the beautiful arrangement of the Brisbane Airport International Lantern Garden, and if you have the stamina, make your way into The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent’s Garden Bar to take in the Festival vibe.

Over the other side of South Bank (Sidon Street end, River Quay), the Golden Casket Light Sphere is a sight to see with its arrangement of mirrors and feature lights.

Tonight (Friday 21st September), make your way to the Roma Street Parklands for an evening of Symphony Under the Stars performed by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and friends. Featuring some well known classical pieces by the likes of Verdi, Mendelssohn, Elgar, Dvorak, Bizet Rossini and more.

So drive, walk, City Cat, train, bus, ride, or taxi your way to the Brisbane CBD and river for all this and more. Everything above is free so there is no excuse for missing out on this amazing event, (excluding transportation and food & beverages). You have until next weekend, so get out there and celebrate your city now!
