111 George Street is a building on George Street in the Brisbane central business district, Australia which was completed in 1993. It is currently the 13th (2012) tallest building in the city and fully occupied by the Queensland State Government. With its repetitive grill pattern, it is sometimes colloquially referred to as the 'cheese grater'. The site covers 1,299 m2.

A sister project known as 33 Charlotte Street was later built on the adjoining site, and has a very similar facade. This smaller building is 75 m high and was completed in September 2004.[2] Architects BVN also briefly worked on the project.[3]
