History: BCL.com.au began as Brisbane City Life in May 1995 at www.maxlink.com.au/bcl later moving to www.brisbanecitylife.com.au. In January 2003, when the site went nation-wide with a site for each Australian state at www.BCL.com.au, Brisbane City Life remained on the original domain. In 2012, Brisbane merged into the main site at www.BCL.com.au/brisbane/
What is it? BCL.com.au is a regional community guide providing an easy way for readers to find information, events and services around Australia with links to many non-profit groups, government sites and commercial sites. It is an online only publication, there is no related print version.
BCL Subsites: BCL is split into several interlinking subsites:
How is it funded? BCL.com.au is funded by selective commercial advertising.
