Things To Do
Fortitude Valley is a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat, and heritage-listed properties proudly stand among contemporary buildings. The Valley, as it is affectionately known, was Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district and continues to be a hive of activity. Live music thrives with the nation’s best acts drawn to the concert halls and bars. The impressive Chinatown Mall is a hub of exotic Chinese supermarkets and restaurants. James Street showcases Australian fashion labels and local boutiques, and is home to renowned The Calile Hotel and the award-winning fine dining restaurants of Ada Lane. Brunswick Street is home to multicultural and cheap dining options.
From the cranking of a coffee grinder to the final closing doors of nightclubs – Fortitude Valley is the suburb that never sleeps.
Home to some of Brisbane’s best boutique shopping, the Valley is a hive of local, independent stores filled with unique finds. Stop by to pick up your new favourite thing.
