From Wynnum to Wavell Heights and everywhere in between, enter your postcode and a new online hub will link you up with the best Brisbane has to offer in cafes, restaurants, retailers and recreation.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the BrisBetter Local online hub launched today in a bid to stimulate local economy and support businesses following a year of pandemic hardship.
“In September, we launched a suite of Brisbetter local videos, profiling hidden gems and new places to discover in your local area,” Cr Schrinner said.
“These videos were just the tip of the iceberg and BrisBetter Local is now expanding on the initiative with detailed blogs to inspire great days out in our own backyard.
“Postcode-to-postcode, this hub is all about getting out and exploring your own backyard with a focus on life in the suburbs and the friendly faces and shopkeepers who give each area its own unique sense of community and togetherness.”
Cr Schrinner said Brisbetter Local was an initiative of the Economic Recovery Taskforce to support Brisbane’s small businesses that contribute colour, community and services to the city
“The economic effects of coronavirus will linger for years to come and getting people back in stores, supporting local jobs is key to fast-tracking Brisbane’s recovery,” he said.
“We want to keep this momentum going by featuring more than 200 small businesses on our new BrisBetter Local hub, with more to be added all the time.
“Brisbane has really come together throughout the pandemic but if we don’t support our businesses now, one day they’ll be there and the next day they may be gone.
“From the $7.9 million business relief package delivered earlier this year, to our ongoing commitment to buy local; we’re committed to being there with small businesses every step of the way so that they can keep their doors open and Brisbane residents in jobs.”
Visit the Brisbetter Local hub on Council’s website at brisbane.qld.gov.au/brisbetter/explore and search for fun by postcode.
The hub is constantly refreshed with new videos, so ensure you check in regularly to uncover more hidden gems and thing to see and do close to you.
