Precinct in Focus – City East
Step away from the heart of the CBD this BOH weekend and discover some of our city's prime heritage buildings and sites! Who says Brisbane doesn’t have a rich history?
Perhaps start your Sunday morning in the beautiful City Botanic Gardens with a visit to Building No 42 The Curator’s Cottage and continue to Building No 27 Old Government House, QUT. Go on a power trip at Buildings No 29 and No 1 – Parliament House and 1 William Street. On Saturday you can get historical at Building 16 Commissariat Store, Building 21 Government Printery Office and Building 43 Treasury Hotel.
Check individual building opening days and times. There is a whole range of events, tours and more throughout the precinct so learn more on our website.
