Acknowledgement of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation the Bus and Coach Show organisers acknowledge and pay our respect to the Traditional Custodians of the Brisbane region and their connections to land, sea and community, and Elders both past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples attending the Show.

The region of South Brisbane is culturally significant to Indigenous Australians and was frequently used as meeting places for visiting peoples from the north and south of the Brisbane River – the Turrbal and Yuggera people.

Pack for warm weather - expect warm summers and mild winters in Queensland, with majority sunny days. The state is subtropical in the south, and tropical up north - it’s the latter that experiences a defined wet season through summer, that’s humid and hot, with a slightly cooler dry season through winter.

When it comes to what to wear, casual, lightweight clothes are reliable. Temperatures can drop in the southern part of the state, where a jacket or sweatshirt may also be required. But no matter where you are in Queensland, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are always recommended alongside a long-sleeve shirt to protect you from the state’s strong UV rays.

Average Temperatures in Spring (September-November): Brisbane: 13°C to 27°C

The seven-day weather forecast can be found on the BOM website.
