It isn’t all serious politics for G20.

Brisbane has come alive with a feast for all the senses.

Jacinta Lal reports.


Brisbane is putting on its best face for the G20.

The CBD has been covered in colour since last month in preparation for visiting world leaders and their entourage.

The Colour Me Brisbane Light Show has been on every night at 6pm.

It’s been so popular, the show has been extended until Sunday.

Thirty-two city buildings have been decorated with coloured lights or images using cutting edge technology, it’s one of the biggest laser lighting and projection events Brisbane has seen.

The public also has had the chance to express their creative flair.

These ‘Paint Your City’ touchscreens allow anyone to change the colour of the iconic Story Bridge and landmark buildings.

With one touch, you can control what colour you’d like to see the city transform to.

VOX 1: “That was entertaining; it was good, really nice display on the building.”

When the sun sets, the city is a colourful place to be, but there is also plenty of entertainment to be enjoyed during the day.

Street performers, dancing and of course food all showcasing Brisbane’s cultural lifestyle.

VOX 2: “Yesterday we been some like barbequing, rock climbing at Kangaroo Point and we did some City Hopper and we did a bit of sightseeing.”

If visitors are unsure where to begin their cultural journey, they can go to the new Brisbane Visitor Information centre in the Regent Theatre.

The centre is expected to cater to more than 1800 visitors each day.
