The first of the suburban villages to undergo revitalization, Milton is recognized as sparking Brisbane‘s love affair with exciting, individual precincts. A favourite with the in-crowd, this lively precinct is characterised by the expensive sports cars that line Park Road while their owners sip coffee in cafes. This is where the well dressed and well heeled rub shoulders and make plans for tomorrow.
The shopping is classy here too, with the shops boasting everything from antiques to one-off jewelry pieces to Cuban cigars. There are plenty of choices if fine dining (or simply picking up a delicious item from a deli) is what you are looking for, and the kitchens often stay open late.
Milton is also home to the buzzing Coro Hotel, a beautifully refurbished historical landmark that is now a magnet for sophisticated party types. Drive by on any given Sunday and you’ll see the patrons spilling from the verandas as they get into the swing of things and celebrate the weekend.
Other attractions worth visiting in the area include the iconic Castlemaine Brewery built in 1878 and the incomparable Suncorp Stadium, home to the Brisbane Broncos and the Queensland Reds.
