Bulimba and Woolloongabba
The renewal and expansion of Brisbane has seen the proliferation of cafe and shopping strips right across the inner suburbs from north to south. It’s in the suburbs that you’ll find some of the best coffee and most innovative gift, homewares and fashion shops. On the southside, Oxford Street at Bulimba offers a leafy strip that’s a short ferry ride from the CBD, and provides a pleasant break from the city bustle. Logan Road is one of Brisbane’s main thoroughfares, but running south from the Story Bridge through Woolloongabba there's a little dog-leg behind the Gabba cricket ground that's a 19th-century hideaway of antique shops, tiny cafes, top restaurants, young designer fashion and quality homewares.
