New flagship event for Brisbane: Curious? - Choose Brisbane


New flagship event for Brisbane: Curious?

Visitors will be invited to challenge their Curiocity when imagination, innovation, creativity, science, technology and art intersect in Brisbane over three weeks in 2019.

Curiocity Brisbane is an immersive, interactive and multi-sensory experience that will link the city from South Bank to New Farm from March 15 to April 3, 2019.

The concept of this flagship event for Brisbane has grown from a close collaboration between Brisbane City Council, through Brisbane Marketing and the Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland.

The inaugural Curiocity Brisbane includes:

  • The World Science Festival Brisbane 2019 (March 20-24);
  • QODE - brand-new global technology and innovation event (April 2-3); and
  • Curiocities - a trail of 10+ eye-opening interactive installations (March 15 to April 3).

The Curiocities will be positioned along the Brisbane River from South Bank’s Cultural Precinct to Brisbane Powerhouse and operate both day and night over the 20 days.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said Curiocity Brisbane would once again demonstrate the city’s reputation for staging major events.

“Brisbane is Australia’s New World City and Curiocity will deliver a three-week festival of innovation, showcasing our city’s aptitude for science and creativity” Cr Quirk said.

“Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to Brisbane for this event, contributing to a $150 million annual boost to the local economy as well as the local tourism, hospitality, retail and service industries.”
