Fun for Free

Friends enjoy free fun at South Bank

They say that the best things in life are free and the same could be said for some of Brisbane’s best free activities. From the free exhibitions and cinema screenings scattered through QAGOMA, QPAC and the Museum in South Bank’s Cultural Centre, to recreational sports and wellbeing events held in the city, Brisbane has something for everyone. Catch jazz music in parks and up-and-coming artists in Queen Street Mall with City Sounds, plus there are plenty of multicultural festivals and weekend markets.
