Brisbane Queen Street Mall
Enjoy strolling in the car-free, open-air zone that is the Queen Street Mall with its historical arcades and side streets, including two retail precincts, the Myer Centre and Broadway on the Mall.
Youth culture dominates Ann and Brunswick Streets. The Valley also includes quality homewares, epicurean outlets, art galleries and an excellent selection of adventure and outdoor stores. The Valley markets are a unique way to spend Saturday or Sunday. To experience a little slice of Asia in Australia, head to Chinatown in the Valley.
Stretching from bustling Caxton Street in the east, through Brisbane’s own Silicon Valley in Milton, to the intimacy of Rosalie Village in the west, the Paddington area has something for everyone. From delicious desserts and live comedy to great steaks and good pubs, Paddington has everything you could want for a night out. It’s also a great place to shop, with a tremendous range of interesting furnishing, fashion and home design stores.
Southbank is Brisbane’s cultural hub and also hosts weekend markets, with 140 food, art and craft stalls. Unique gifts can be found along Little Stanley Street or stores at the Queensland Art Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Queensland Museum, the Science Centre and the Queensland Performing Arts Complex.
