Major Events in Brisbane
In recent years, Brisbane has been capturing the attention of art lovers, sporting enthusiasts and festival fun seekers as Australia’s major events destination. Alongside international exclusives like the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s Picasso, Surrealism and Matisse exhibitions, the city has welcomed showcase productions from the Paris Opera Ballet and Broadway musicals such as Mary Poppins and Jersey Boys. Brisbane’s love of sport has revelled in epic international sporting matches like the Bledisloe Cup and Brisbane International. At the same time, Brisbane’s community regularly comes together to celebrate through a lively local program of annual festivals and events like the Brisbane Festival and Anywhere Theatre Festival.
