Things To Do
Few other suburbs can match Kangaroo Point for its views and natural beauty. Standing atop the ancient cliffs, the unmasked views of the river, city attractions and mountains show Brisbane at its best. Woolloongabba is said to mean meeting place in Aboriginal dialect and it has been a gathering point for sports lovers. The Gabba is part of cricketing folklore as the scene of some magnificent performances and the famous tied Test in 1960. Woolloongabba is also known for its reputation as Brisbane’s antique precinct and has bargain hunters and furniture enthusiasts flocking to its stores on weekends.
Perched along Stanley Street East next door to Foxy Bean in Woolloongabba, The Catbird Seat Bistro serves up a hearty menu of modern Australian cuisine inspired by French, Nordic and Scandinavian flavours.

The Bride’s Market is a wonderful new way for brides to plan their special day and for vendors to showcase their work in a beautiful, creative retail space.
