Put your walking shoes on, travelers! Visitors to Brisbane with an extra hour to spare should find themselves at Central Station. From here, the Albert Street Literary Walk can be accessed, taking people on a journey to 32 brass plaques with literary quotes set in the pavement.
The 32 brass plaques hold quotes about Brisbane as said by 32 Queensland writers, those who have called Brisbane home at one point or another, such as Kath Walker, Steele Rudd and David Malouf. The trail was launched in 1996 after a period of literary reform occurred in the city – putting it on the map with the writing community who then brought the city into a more liveable and lively vibe. The quotes located on the 32 plaques portray visions of Brisbane chosen from text.
