World Expo 88 Public Art Trail - 30th Anniversary
I'm sure everyone can remember Expo '88
when the city of Brisbane came alive with entertainment and events of a type never seen before. Emerging from that inspiring event, the City of Brisbane
grew to a vibrant new level of art and craft, technology and wisdom, which we see today in Brisbane's place as an energetic city of the future of Queensland and Australia.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of World Expo '88
, the Brisbane City Council is extending the existing self-guided art trail to include additional artworks and artefacts from Expo '88. This includes restorations and relocations of some of the artworks, giving visitors and residents a chance to rekindle their memories while enjoying a walk around the city. Most artworks are within walking distance of the Brisbane CBD, although two are at the Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha.

Trekking around Brisbane to view these artworks will not only take you down memory lane but will be an excellent day out in our amazing city. Writing this article has made me very nostalgic and only wish an event like this could once again come to Brisbane.
