The AUD$625 million fair was the largest event of the 1988 Bicentennial celebrations of the European settlement of Australia.
The event achieved both its economic aims and very good attendances, was successfully used to promote Queensland as a tourist destination and it spurred a major re-development at the South Brisbane site.
Many of the exposition’s sculptures and buildings were retained by various entities around the state and are still in use or on display decades later.
