But where do you find such wonders?
Lucky for you, no matter where you find yourself in Brisbane, there will be restaurants on your doorstep. However, it’s good to know where some of the best have found their homes. As you would expect, the CBD is packed with places to eat, from local spots to the more upmarket restaurants, so take a wander around Eagle Street Pier, George Street, North Quay and Elizabeth Street and you’ll be in for a treat. Across the river, West End is brimming with funky bars and restaurants that Brisbane locals – most notably students – would be more than acquainted with. Craft beer bars and hipster hangouts have found their place here, and you’re in for a banger night in this part of town. For Asian delights, further south is what you’ll be wanting, and a visit to Sunnybank will leave you in heaven, no matter if it’s Sichuan, Vietnamese, Cantonese or Thai cuisine. And of course, the Fortitude Valley, New Farm and Teneriffe area is packed with some of the best up-and-coming restaurants around. Wander through James Street or indulge in the Gasworks complex before hitting the dancefloors, or relax in a rooftop bar and knock back some seriously stellar tipples.
