Shopping in the City
There are more than 1000 stores in Brisbane City - an overwhelming number if you don’t know where to look. Luckily, we’re here to help you discover something cool in every direction, whether you’re looking for new shoes, a birthday gift or a big-ticket item.
Shopping in Brisbane City is an experience like no other in Queensland. The CBD buzz centres on Queen Street Mall, where you’ll find 700 stores from international luxury brands and department flagships through to Brisbane designers and boutiques. Your favourite Australian brands and chains are all here, alongside more unusual and unique fashion finds.
Between bursts of retail therapy, slip down laneways to find hidden bars and cafes for a pitstop, or hunt out lunch or dinner for any budget around the mall and neighbouring Edward, Adelaide, Albert and Elizabeth streets.
Maybe the first time you stepped foot in Queen Street Mall was on a shopping trip with your grandmother. She took you for afternoon tea and you visited a department store. Or maybe you’re planning your first visit. Either way, the City is a place for making memories.
