Greeter Sue Hammond

Number of years lived in Brisbane:

We came to Brisbane to visit World Expo '88, fell in love with the city, and never looked back.

Favourite things about Brisbane:

I love that Brisbane is a clean, safe city with a beautiful sub-tropical climate. Brisbane offers a high-quality lifestyle and is my favourite city in the world! I also love the huge variety of public art in the city. We really are blessed to have so many interesting art pieces surrounding us.

Favourite place in Brisbane:

Brisbane’s vibrant cafes are some of my favourite places in Brisbane. In unexpected locations, you can find some of the best coffee and quirky venues – you just have to know where to look … that’s where Greeters come in!

Fascinating fact I like to share about Brisbane:

The statue of Queen Victoria in Queens Park is the only statue of her in the whole of Queensland. It was after Queen Victoria proclaimed: “I would like my new state to be called Queensland” that our state got its name.

Special interests:

Public Art and Contemporary Design, Major Heritage Buildings, and photography.

I enjoy being a Brisbane Greeter because:

My favourite thing about being a Brisbane Greeter is meeting new people. I love it when visitors fall in love with Brisbane after their Brisbane Greeters experience, and I love to share with visitors and locals alike the interesting and amazing stories, buildings and public art we have in our beautiful city.
