  • Koala populations have declined alarmingly due to heavy development and car strikes. The declines are rapidly increasing in the area east of Brisbane. The world is shocked and disappointed at this city's treatment and negligence of its most symbolic animal. The city administration needs to find better ways to protect the few hundred remaining. Please urge the city and government officials to implement effective koala protection strategies such as wildlife highway bridges and to increase public awareness along with legal enforcement.
  • I was lucky enough to tour the hall the week it was opened to the public and then attend a function there several weeks later, the building looks beyond amazing, the architecture and attention to detail in the renovations is remarkable
  • Beautiful architecture in the centre of the city. Great to sit outside and enjoy the view
  • Absolutely beautiful building with a free museum about Brisbane. The main auditorium is really beautiful as well.
  • Stunning architecture and worth a look around. You could get lost in the many rooms.
