West End, QLD

It takes all kinds to make a community. And ‘all kinds’ is exactly what you’ll find in West End. From dreadlocked Rastafarians lazing on couches sipping tea to Chinese restaurateurs cooking up steamed pork buns, from indigenous artisans offering their wares to Greek grandmothers gossiping on the corner, it’s all here in West End.

West End

The rich tapestry of life in West End is largely due to the fascinating migrant and indigenous communities that have called this precinct home from the very beginning. Today, this intoxicating collision of so many cultures is the main draw card, with many locals and visitors spending time here to take in the sights, sounds and exotic tastes on offer. Generations-old stores sit side by side with non-pretentious newcomers, modern European restaurants mix with budget Asian eats, and somehow it all seems to work perfectly.

With Boundary Street as the focus of activity, you’ll find laid back cafes are in plentiful supply, as are restaurants, bars and pubs. And when you are not eating, there are many weird and wonderful boutiques, book stores and small galleries to insatiate the appetites of visitors.
