Welcome to a new

edition of your free

BNE Magazine,

brought to you by

Brisbane Airport


hen the original Cloudland

was built in Brisbane back

in 1940 its architect wanted

it to be the best ballroom in the

Southern Hemisphere. Although he

wasn’t there to see it, Cloudland did

become the scene of many midnight

to dawn dance parties, attracting

hundreds to tap out a quickstep,

foxtrot or even a jive to the sounds

of a live Big Band or orchestra. The

original dance hall has long gone but

its namesake, in the heart of Brisbane’s

clubland, has reinvented the meaning

of dance party for a new legion of fans

– favouring steps from swing to samba

and salsa. See page 12 to be inspired.

There couldn’t be a better way to

celebrate the festive season ...
