How would you describe Brisbane in three words?
How would you sell Brisbane to the rest of the world?

And we’re seeking your views as well – go to the comments section and tell us what three adjectives you think would work well to promote the city.
Cr Quirk today told us the city’s vision as a “smart-thinking, easy-living world class city” was not going to change, but he wanted to find ways for Brisbane to promote itself.
“We know we have tremendous weather, it is a fantastic climate to visit,” he said.
“But it is that other thing, that other hook that will attract people that we are looking for.”
