Messengers of Brisbane

Festivals and Celebrations

4 Sep 2020 to 26 Sep 2020 Once Only Event

Six giant Gouldian Finches will fly into Brisbane to spread messages of hope this September.

Created by internationally renowned artist Florentijn Hofman and brought to life by Brisbane’s Urban Art Projects, these spectacularly coloured birds invite us to look up and smile.

Perched atop iconic Brisbane locations in the inner-city river area, Messengers of Brisbane can be viewed on a leisurely stroll, bike ride, or even from a CityCat.

Learn more about this endangered species through workshops and activities at Queensland Museum and on Brisbane Festival’s website.

Party hats are on!
