King George Square - FURTHER INFORMATION

King George Square - Brisbane visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'King George Square' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Queensland.

King George Square is a focal point of Brisbane. The square was created after the death of King George in 1936. On the southern edge of the square is Brisbane City Hall, guarded by lion sculptures. These originally stood on plinths as part of the George V memorial, unveiled in 1938 as a tribute to the King from the citizens of Brisbane. The Albert Street Uniting Church stands on the western edge. A fountain used to stand in the middle of the square but this has now been demolished. The square also has a 'Speakers Corner' with statues of Steele Rudd, Emma Miller, and Sir Charles Lilley, reminiscent of the Speaker Corner by Hyde Park in London. Much of the eastern half of King George Square was boarded up at the time this panoramic image was taken as the car park beneath is was being redeveloped into King George Square Busway Station.
