New! Brisbane Outdoor Reads

Council_Centre_Colour_72_15mm-300x164Thanks to the Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Reads you are able to take part in 8 exciting adventures around 3 of Brisbane’s parks:

 

  • 7th Brigade Park (Chermside),
  • JC Slaughter Falls (Mt Coot-tha) and
  • Hanlon Park (Greenslopes)

 

Will you choose to take on the puzzle trail in each park, go on a nature adventure, or explore the park’s history and indigenous culture?

 

Outdoor Reads provides you with an interactive walking and reading experience via the Story City mobile app.

 

The Story City app works on geo-location technology and enables you to choose from one of eight stories, all based on elements of the surrounding natural environment. The stories lead listeners around the park as you choose your adventure and learn more about Brisbane’s natural environment and waterways.

 

These stories have just launched, November 2017! Why not check them out today?
