South Brisbane and South Bank

Only 9 sleeps to go!

On the night of September 5, the William Jolly Bridge on Grey Street, South Brisbane will be bathed in a commemorative light display set to last until December this year.  The display of colour will celebrate the Bridge’s heritage.   The project, to commemorate the men who petitioned for the City’s independence, is part of ‘Brisbane 150’ celebrations.
