Feels like I am in Europe with a few squares in this city especially this big square. Big space in the city centre. Lots of people, cafes and activities. Quite lively even in the evening/night. Very nice with the night lights.

King George Square is an open public space in the centre of Brisbane and is surrounded by fine buildings including the Museum of Brisbane and two churches. The military inspired statues are a reminder of sacrifice and courage.
