Eclectic is an apt description for the inner-city suburb of West End, which neighbours South Bank and hugs the Brisbane River.
Welcome to West End
This quirky neighbourhood is a melting pot of multiculturalism and plays host to residents and visitors from across the globe. The result is an impressive array of culturally diverse cafes and restaurants, which jostle with a growing number of bars and craft breweries on the main drag of Boundary Street.
The live music scene in West End cannot be missed, with the suburb’s collection of venues going strong since the early days of local bands like The Saints, the Go-Betweens and the Bee Gees.
West End is not just a destination for the night owls. The West End Markets are one of Brisbane’s most iconic weekend activities. Picture 150 stalls peddling everything from organic veg to handcrafted clothing.
