Exploring Adelaide Street, Brisbane
Bordering the stylishly offbeat suburb of Fortitude Valley, you will be positioned amongst the hive of all activity. Dictated to be Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district, the Valley showcases an exciting live music culture, mixed in with chic and trendy bars, shopping and a vibrant multicultural essence.
Amongst this bustling suburb is a large Chinatown, marked with the large stone guard lions of a traditional Chinese gateway. Enter through to the hustle of a historic tradition and witness the architecture, colours and exotic smells of the Orient without even leaving Brisbane city.
Our position along the banks of Brisbane River means that we are only moments away from the winding boardwalk, paving a leisurely path towards the centre of Brisbane’s CBD as well as the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Spend a day out at Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park to enjoy stunning views of Brisbane River, or enjoy some arts and culture at the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern ART (GOMA) or at the Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, all only a moment’s ferry ride away.
Southbank is a must visit for those travelling to Brisbane, where Australia’s only inner-city, man-made beach resides. The perfect location to lounge about and soak in the warmth of the Sunshine Coast, this exciting precinct is only minutes away from our hotel.
Spend a night’s entertainment at the Treasury Casino, catch the latest live show production at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, watch an exciting footy match at Suncorp Stadium or witness an exhilarating sporting game at The Gabba.
Along the boardwalk, Eagle Street is an iconic precinct for waterfront dining and beautiful views over Brisbane River. Ranging from fine dining options, such as ARIA restaurant and Saké, to take away food joints and cafes, there will be ample choice for everyone.
Southbank provides the perfect domain for an electric dining experience. With a variety of restaurants, ranging between all price markets, scattering both the Little Stanley Street and River Quay precincts, there will be mouth-watering dishes and exquisite drinks to cater to all occasions. Try out authentic Italian food at Julius Pizzeria, head over to Ole for a fiesta of Spanish tapas dishes, or even visit Stokehouse for that special occasion over the river.
Neighbouring us, The Valley, features an abundance of eclectic and exotic food choices. From fine dining to casual dining to a thriving pub culture and late night eats, Fortitude Valley has something for everyone. Experience Brisbane’s exciting bar scene from new heights at Eleven Rooftop Bar or visit one of the many pubs that scatter the streets.
Open every Saturday is the Valley’s bustling street market, where you will find the widest selection of crafted art, designer fashion, original jewellery pieces, fresh food as well as music and vintage gadgets. Mixing in arts, fashion and entertainment into a vibrant and revamped marketplace vibe, you will definitely want to spend a Saturday wandering through the stalls.
For a much more mainstream shopping approach, Queen Street Mall is the city’s major shopping district, stretching between George Street to Edward Street right in the heart of Brisbane. Home to six shopping centres, Queen Street offers an exciting mix of specialty retail stores, department stores as well as international fashion brands.
