Brisbane: Colour in the City

Head into the city this spring for a pop of colour at a new experience presented by Brisbane City Council.

Launching 26 August, the Colour in the City walking trail takes in 7 vacant shop fronts, each featuring a vibrant colour-block installation by Sugar Republic, designed to banish the winter blues and put a spring in your step as you sample the new season’s fashion, food and fun.

The Instagrammable installations include:

  • a smiley-face-filled shop window in an unexpected location to brighten your day
  • a pink-on-pink spring floral explosion
  • and lots of other surprises to discover

At the end of the walking trail (around 20 minutes) you are invited to visit the Pastel Palace inside the Wintergarden. At this pretty pop-up funhouse you will find uplifting installations including a pastel ball pit, a confetti shower, and a positive message wall.

Immerse yourself in positive spring vibes as you rediscover the delights of our city.
