South Brisbane and South Bank

It's time to shake South Brisbane's cultural cringe

Tom Croydon Blue HeelersAussie silver-screen stalwart John Wood today proclaimed it was high time “Brisbane realised it was home to one of the best cultural precincts in Australia.”  Well done Mr Woods!  With Goma and QPAC at the heart of Brisbane’s hottest urban renewal precincts, why would you go to Sydney, after all, as John puts it, “[The Sydney Opera House] is an amazing piece of architecture…but it doesn’t necessarily have what you have here.”

I never was a massive Blue Heelers fan, but when it comes to the South Brisbane arts scene, I reckon Sgt Croydon is right on the money.
