Abstract

Brisbane has many claims to fame. The city affectionately described by locals as Brisneyland or BrisVegas was the world’s busiest submarine port during the Second World War. Thirty years ago, it was the host of Expo 88. It is the home of the Gabba cricket ground, the Bee Gees and the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. It is the birthplace of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment and that Australian delicacy, the lamington. Yet in the not-so-distant past, Tourism Australia promoted the city not as a destination in itself but as “The Gateway to the Gold Coast” or “A Portal to the Pacific”: a mere rest stop before the thrill rides at Dreamworld or an underwater adventure on the Barrier Reef. Brisbane’s other nickname, the Cinderella City, is a reference to her neglect and a dig at her older stepsisters (neither Sydney nor Melbourne are ugly, of course, but both are incredibly vain).
