ABQ is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's television station in Brisbane, Queensland. It began broadcasting on 2 November 1959 and is based at purpose-built headquarters on Brisbane's South Bank. The station is received throughout the state through a number of relay transmitters, and satellite transmission on the Optus Aurora free-to-view platform. ABQ's schedule largely consists of national ABC Television programming with opt-outs for news and current affairs, rugby league and state election coverage.

For many years, the station was based at studios in the inner-western suburb of Toowong, with a transmitter at Mount Coot-tha. In late 2006, the Toowong studios were abandoned due to an unacceptably high rate of breast cancer at the facility. An independent study examined 10 cases of breast cancer reported at the studios, and found the incidence rate was 11 times higher than the general working community.

Up until January 2012, staff worked from several sites around Brisbane, with ABC Radio based in nearby Lissner Street, Toowong, ABC News staff working from Network Ten's Mount Coot-tha studios, ABC Innovation and Online staff working at QUT Kelvin Grove, and other staff based in locations including Coronation Drive and West End. On 10 January 2012, ABC Brisbane moved into a new facility in South Bank.
