Central Business District Shopping (Self Guided), Brisbane

Spend some time in Brisbane's Central Business District (CBD) and you'll discover great shopping at every turn. Known colloquially as ‘the city’, the CBD is the state of Queensland’s premier shopping district with more than 1,000 stores.

Check out flagship boutiques, splash out on some designer jewelry and peruse the racks of the sleek stores lining Adelaide Street. Treat yourself to a shopping expedition at Queen Street Mall, a vast lifestyle and shopping precinct. Every year, more than 26 million visitors pass through here, so it must be doing something right. The pedestrianized mall encompasses local, national and international labels as well as a cinema, restaurants, casino and farmers market. It also hosts the plush, high-end Queens Plaza, the Wintergarden shopping area and the heritage-listed Brisbane Arcade, built in 1923.

The mall is also where Brisbane comes to be entertained. More than 1,000 events are presented here every year, and on Friday nights and weekends there is the City Sounds free live music program. This cultural extravaganza features local and touring bands and artists. The Central Business District is also a must-see destination for its dining opportunities, from fast-food joints and hidden cafés to swanky restaurants and riverside bistros. In fact, there are more Good Food Guide-awarded venues here than in any other Queensland location.
