Pledge to make QLD a cultural hub to focus on Brisbane

QUEENSLANDERS are being urged to have their say on the planned upgrade of the Southbank Cultural Precinct.

Premier Campbell Newman and Arts Minister Ian Walker unveiled a draft master plan for the precinct on Monday (May 05) which the government claims will transform it into a world-leading entertainment and cultural tourism destination.

"The master plan is a bold vision to guide future development and investment over the next 20 years, proposing new theatres, hotels, dining and science facilities as well as a new learning centre," Mr Newman said.

"We want to make what is great about Queensland even better, and the economic advantages of a booming cultural precinct will be felt by all Queenslanders.

"The precinct is currently a magnet for cultural tourists, and we want attract even more visitors to Brisbane to enjoy our great arts scene."
