The River: A History of Brisbane exhibition explores our ever-changing relationship with the Brisbane river.

As the defining symbol of our city, the wayward and beautiful Brisbane River has bought us opportunity, sanctuary and at times, heartbreak.

From its importance to the land's traditional owners, its discovery that decided our capital's location, and the industry that was born along its shores, the river has played a critical role in the growth of our city.

Revealing how the river is intertwined in the lives of Brisbane's inhabitants, the exhibition is also a stunning showcase of artworks and objects from the City of Brisbane collection.

The River: A History of Brisbane will connect you to the stories of the city as it charts a compelling journey from Brisbane’s earliest settlement through to the modern city we call home.
