The Epicurious Garden
The Epicurious Garden at Brisbane’s South Bank Parklands is a must-visit destination for green thumbs and foodies alike.

Explore an exquisite green space which is both an ornamental and edible garden. All produce in the garden is organically grown and plantings are rotated seasonally throughout the year.

Between 7am and 11.30am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, dedicated garden volunteers are on site to answer your questions. Learn about inner-city gardening or read recipe suggestions for cooking with fresh produce in your own home.

You can also sample free produce from the garden’s harvest cart. It operates on a first-in, best-dressed basis – so get in early!

Museum of Brisbane
Museum of Brisbane, located in City Hall, brings alive the city’s vibrant art, culture and history through exhibitions, workshops, tours and special events.

The museum examines how Brisbane and its people change over time – revealing the way our individual and collective stories continue to shape the city’s evolution.

Brisbane’s seemingly ordinary people and places are rich with unexpected and fascinating tales – and these are shared through the museum’s constantly changing schedule of displays and exhibitions.
