Great way to spend your Saturday morning checking out the markets down by the river. A mix of food, fashion, craft, etc. Nothing better than grabbing a coffee under the big fig tree and listen to the music playing. Can be a bit hot in summer, so you'll be looking for the shade as you walk around. Do yourself a... More

Eclectic range of food, beverage, arts & crafts, markets, multi-cultural restaurants, parks, backpacker hostels, supermarkets, some upmarket accommodation. A great place to explore during the day, or go out at night.

we were walking to the tourist boat tour and came across the West End at the end of the mall. we decided to explore further on our way back. we stopped at several stalls and had a number of small items for lunch. The mushrooms that we had at the mushroom stall were fantastic, definitely worth a try.

West end is nice for a meal or a few drinks.. It's not as great as it was in the past, but it's an accessible location and a few of the venues are as good as you'll find around town. You'll find a few good bars, live music venues, restaurants and cafes and takeaway food.

West end is a great place to visit to experience something different in Brisbane. There is a strong student culture combined with ethnic restaurants and hippy shops, it has a very different feel to the main city area. There are good restaurants and cheap places to eat, or just wander around and take in some of the characters that live... More
