Brisbane has a bit of a reputation for being a sleepy town. Don’t let that fool you though – we have some fantastic attractions, food, great shopping and the best weather around. Make sure to arrive on an empty stomach and bring your sunscreen!
Start your day by utilising one of Brisbane’s beautiful walking routes.
If you’re gluten intolerant but still a massive foodie, this place is for you. GF waffles, donuts and pulled meat burgers are their jam, and they do them well. For the dairy intolerant, we recommend an iced coffee with almond milk.
Paddington’s Sassafras is one of the most well known cafes in Brisbane. They do a good hearty Aussie breakfast in a relaxed setting.
88 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington, Brisbane, Australia +61 07 3369 0600
This place is a mecca for fashionistas. Here you will find mega stores like David Jones and Pottery Barn, to independent boutiques such as Gorman, Calexico and Sass and Bide.
Paddington has everything from brilliant local designers and manufacturers, to the best of Brisbane’s vintage and antique stores. Take your time to stroll down this long terrace.
Grab a picnic from Popolo and soak up some fresh air. Place your picnic order with Popolo and you’ll be given a red picnic blanket. Mosey on down to the grassy knoll and enjoy the view. The Popolo staff will bring your picnic feast over so you don’t have to lift a finger.
Gerard’s has a reputation for consistently good service and quality food. They are also brilliant at pairing wines and delicious tapas if you’re after a lighter option.
Wander down West End’s main streets (Vulture and Boundary). Visit SWOP for vintage, The Happy Cabin for gifts and fashion and Avid Reader for books and a cuppa.
The lane ways in Brisbane are a somewhat new addition. Bakery Lane (not just bakeries) and Winn Lane are definitely worth a visit with sweet little boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Try I Heart Brownies for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Bakery Lane – 690 Ann St, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Australia
Winn Lane – Winn St, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Australia
Beautiful fit-out, knowledgeable staff, this place has it all. Super easy to find on the Fortitude Valley lane ways too.
It’s all about over the top flavours, like caramelised ginger bavarois with sesame. You can even opt for the paired wines too. Which obviously, you should.
Ice cream sandwiches are Mister Fitz’ speciality. Our warning would be to take a friend because these can be a bit too much for just one person. You may want to do this pre-nightcap and wash the sweetness overload down with something strong.
