@statelibraryqld's 'Lifestyle: a sunshine state of mind' exhibition explores how Queenslanders live and play across the state.
A great hands-on exhibition that explores the myriad of ideas and identities that are quintessentially Queensland.

Come and sit with our friends from @statelibraryqld in the BRAG park ⭐️ 🌳 anytime from 7pm – 9pm. #regionalartgalleries#anzac#qanzac100#statelibraryqld
The baton relay reaches Brisbane this weekend 🏃🏻♀️ 🏃🏻... AND it's the design we're really interested in!
This year's baton is made from natural fibres and plastic collected from Gold Coast beaches.
The entire design process is unpacked in @statelibraryqld's new exhibition: Bright Bold Boundless. It features videos of the design process as well as rare past batons!
It's on until 12 August!
The Corner is the @statelibraryqld’s free creative and reading area for children under 8 years and their carers and it's a great place to visit for quiet play.
The acid-laced nib of Donald Friend's pen, writing to Patricia Bennet from Sri Lanka, 18 August 1961. Collection : Australian Library of Art, State Library of Queensland 'Colombo can be very funny. There is (the new taxes) a limit of £3000 in incomes. NO ONE is allowed more: the surplus is simply taken as tax, even all foreigners. The new poor created by this go about looking like stroke victims. "£3000..... why, you couldn't buy a pair of earrings for that! -", and really, their jewells [sic] ARE charming - anklets of star rubies and that sort of thing. They all gibber with fury at Mrs Bandarayake [sic] (the P.M-ess) who is sullen, dumb, unsmiling, stubborn, without charm or intelligence - BUT she is strongwilled, stupid, and very very forceful - a cross between Queen Zenobia and an orphanage wardress.' #art#artists#australianartist#donaldfriend#letter#handwriting#history#arthistory#srilankanhistory#writing#document#srilanka#gossip#statelibraryqld @statelibraryqld
:: TIMELESS ELEGANCE :: I’m a sucker for a white wedding so it seems, and the timeless elegance of white, green + grey always makes me swoon... Choosing a style now that you know you’ll still love in years to come, rather than the ‘IT’ trend of right now can sometimes be the better option ✨✨✨
