Messengers of Brisbane

Party hats are back on!

By popular demand, our glorious Gouldian Finches will fly back to Brisbane this September.

Created by internationally renowned artist, Florentijn Hofman, and brought to life by Brisbane’s Urban Art Projects, these spectacularly coloured birds will be perched atop iconic Brisbane locations to surprise and delight passers-by.
