South-East Queensland is made up of 18 cities, towns and shires and is home to more than three million people, with another one million on the way.

200km City: From Noosa to the Tweed

This exhibition traced the evolution of this region over the last 100 years and encouraged debate about its future. The show included nostalgic images of the past, like the building of the Bribie Island Bridge, traffic jams in the 1920s and trips to the beach.

Importantly, The 200km City provided visitors with up-to-date information about population, housing, green space and transport trends and explores possibilities for this dynamic region in the next 50 years. The 200km City: From Noosa to the Tweed was presented by Museum of Brisbane in partnership with the Brisbane Institute and the State Library of Queensland and was curated by Professor Peter Spearritt.
