This November, Brisbane City Council and News Talk 4BC are teaming up to welcome our international visitors to Brisbane for the G20 Leaders Summit in November.

Roma Street Parklands will host the 4BC Floral Welcome Mat community project and centrepiece from Thursday 6 November for the summit, a spectacular outdoor floral carpet made up of over 6000 locally sourced plants. The idea of the piece is to encapsulate the Team Brisbane spirit, showcasing Queensland’s sub-tropical wonders and agricultural industry.

Environment, Parks and Sustainability Chairman Cr Matthew Bourke believes that the project would be a fantastic opportunity to show visitors what Brisbane has to offer. “This is a great way to show our visitors what Brisbane has to offer,” he said. “Local businesses, garden clubs, Roma Street Parkland volunteers and horticulturists will work with Parkland staff as a team to build the Floral Welcome Mat.”

Construction for the piece will kick off in late October and be launched during the summit held from the 15th-16th of November. This project and the vision of the 4BC Floral Welcome Mat has been made possible through the support of the Brisbane City Council and the work of volunteers and horticulturists.
