Shopping in Brisbane
From Queensland’s premier shopping precinct – The City – to local favourites Fortitude Valley and Paddington, you’ll discover shopping experiences like no other in Brisbane. The City offers more than 1000 stores and the state’s largest collection of flagship stores. Fortitude Valley is home to local designers and high-end fashion at James Street and the Emporium, while Paddington is best for homewares, books, vintage and designer fashion.
Queen St Mall, Brisbane
The last few years have seen an explosive revival of the iconic CBD shopping mall, and there’s a bevvy of stores waiting to be discovered, from big brand names lining the main street to off-side gems like Wintergarden and Brisbane Arcade hiding boutique and home-grown goods.
James Street, Fortitude Valley
This is a place where serious shoppers go, with a mix of high-fashion and lifestyle brands (both international and Australian) interspersed with some of the best cafes and restaurants in the city.
Oxford Street, Bulimba
Right in the heart of Bulimba, on Brisbane’s East side, Oxford Street is guaranteed to satisfy your retail cravings. Offering an eclectic mix of stores, cafes, and a beautiful park in the middle, Oxford Street is perfect for a weekend sojourn away from the CBD.
Winn Lane, Fortitude Valley
This revamped laneway has become a stylish slice of hip boutiques, book shops and burger joints tucked away in Fortitude Valley. The Culprit Club is your go-to for local artwork while House of Cards and Sunday Social have your sartorial needs covered. And it’d be a gosh darn travesty if you didn’t get stuck into Ben’s Burgers while you’re in that neck of the woods.
Latrobe Terrace, Paddington
Head out of the city to Paddington, and you’ll find a treasure trove of stores lining the streets of bustling Latrobe Terrace. With cafes galore, fashion boutiques, and homewares stores, it’s not hard to see why it’s so popular with Brisbane locals. Enter vintage heaven at the Paddington Antique Centre inside the heritage-listed Plaza Theatre, where you’ll find all the charms of yesteryear from collectable costumes and antique Australian pottery to retro clothing and accessories.
