Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said Time’s recognition of Brisbane was welcome but not a moment too soon.


“While this is a fantastic accolade for our city, it’s also about time!” Cr Schrinner said.


“Our residents already know Brisbane is the best place in the world to live and just keeps getting better.


“It’s no accident that Brisbane is the fastest growing capital city in the country with people from southern states recognising that our city’s incredible climate, lifestyle and liveability is second to none.


“We’re investing in fantastic projects like Victoria Park, Brisbane Metro and our green bridges to help make Brisbane even better.


“Precincts like Southbank and Howard Smith Wharves are world-class destinations while our suburbs are great places to live, work and relax.


“With the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games on the horizon, our city will grow rapidly as a destination for tourism and events.


“Time magazine’s acknowledgement is another example of the world recognising that Brisbane just keeps getting better.”
