Originally, the Market Square was located between Ann and Adelaide Streets and became the site of the Brisbane City Hall. As the Hall was set back from Albert Street, the area was widened and named Albert Square in honour of Prince Albert, who was the husband of Queen Victoria. After the death of King George V in 1936, the Square was widened again and renamed King George Square in honour of him.

Bronze lion sculptures guard the entrance to the Square and statues of famous Queenslanders Emma Miller, Sir Charles Lilley and Steele Rudd adorn other areas. The Square underwent a redevelopment in 2009, although not all like its newer appearance.

However, it is a great place to meet friends and have lunch. Why not catch the bus or train into the city, have dinner early and walk up to King George Square for a couple of musical hours before returning home? It is not a late night for little ones either.
