Opposition leader Bill Shorten has stopped short of endorsing a Brisbane bid for the 2028 Olympics Games, saying he'd like to see what the city is offering.

Southeast Queensland Councils are yet to conduct a full feasibility study into the pros and cons of bidding for the Games, although Brisbane City Council is keen for the report to proceed.

"It's a very interesting idea and we will certainly look at it," Mr Shorten told reporters in Brisbane on Monday.

"Everyone knows that Queensland contributes more than its fair share of top athletes to our Olympic team."
