Welcome to a new

edition of your free

BNE Magazine,

brought to you by

Brisbane Airport


he best travel experiences are

often off the beaten tourist

trail when you get to the heart

of a place and meet the locals in the

places they love. In this issue Brisbane

expat Elizabeth Mabin takes us on the

train in the city that has become her

home to show us there is more to see

than Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.

Equally, at Brisbane Comedy Festival

it pays to look behind the headline

acts to find some gems of local talent

– The Pineapple Club and

Speed the

Movie the Play

among them – but

it takes a leap of faith to follow a

different path. This issue showcases

people who have done just that in all

sorts of ways and we hope it inspires

you to do the same
