Fodor's Review

This sunny riverside hub is literally the cultural center of Brisbane, with a variety of world-class facilities nestled together amongst landscaped lawns and cafés. The world famous Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) with its ever-changing exhibitions and events is a must-visit, while a short stroll away the equally impressive Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Museum, and Sciencentre have attractions for both young and old. Meanwhile, you can't miss the green walls of the architecturally renowned State Library of Queensland (find many free, interactive children's activities inside at The Corner). Across the road, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) bustles with concerts and stage shows. There's also a host of restaurants, cafés, gift and book shops, a ticketing agent (in QPAC), public-access computer terminals, and various public spaces. Regular special events and festivals are also held in the Cultural Centre forecourt, particularly on weekends. Green Cabs (modern rickshaws) are a fun and unique way to get around and sightsee in this area. Starting at the Wheel of Brisbane adjacent QPAC, they'll ferry passengers anywhere between West End and Fortitude Valley.
