West End Walk (Self Guided), Brisbane

Experience the rich and varied cultures that make the West End one of Brisbane's most bohemian and culturally diverse suburbs. This small inner-city enclave is the city's grungy and organic hub where trendy types chug on boutique craft beers, browse delis for artisanal foods and dine on hearty organic meals. Signs of urban renewal can be seen in many places, but despite this the West End has successfully managed to maintain its cozy village-like feel.

Take your taste buds on a mouthwatering journey around global cuisines with visits to the district’s assortment of restaurants, including Chinese, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian and Turkish. Continue your cultural journey with pit stops at ethic cafés. There are many to choose from, a fact that contributes to the West End’s nickname of the city’s café central.

Discover many more restaurants and cafés on Boundary Road, the West End’s main strip. It also encompasses live music venues, bookshops and a tattoo parlor. If you are here on the weekends, rummage through the stalls of the weekend market, where aspiring designers sell their wares, often at good prices. Night owls are well catered for in the West End with bars and clubs that are jumping well into the small hours.
