Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Library
Although the seating sections in this top-class facility are quite comfortable, State Library Of Queensland is far more than just a place to read books. You’ll discover a strong reference section, access to computers, and workshop areas. A digital culture center called The Edge offers Internet training. The library houses the 1892 Manifesto of the Queensland Labour Party to the people of Queensland and The Margaret Lawrie Collection of Torres Strait Island Materials, both recognized by UNESCO’s prestigious Memory of the World Australian Register. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Brisbane trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • A perfect public space. Bright, clean, safe, and easily accessible. I have always found the staff really friendly. I didn't actually realise, but you don't need any access card to go to the upper levels. All FREE!
  • This place is my home away from home. I love to study at the Jacaranda Lounge and listen to the piano players on Friday afternoons. Incredible range of books, activities and historical collections not to mention the incredible view of the Brisbane River and CBD. Whenever I have a question, a friendly staff member is always there to help me. I feel privileged to have access to these world-class facilities.
  • Amazing building. My meeting there was a total fail, but the facility is amazing!
  • Jason (in the infozone) was incredible! Helped me photo copy i.d documents then offered his JP services to assist me. He saved me alot of time on a stressful day. Lovely man, highly recommend!
  • The free Curator’s tour of the Isands Exhibition was so refreshing, interactive and eye opening to the novice history buff. Level 4. Why not go see and experience it for yourself?
