Fortitude Valley, Brisbane Area
Situated in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane's Chinatown Mall is a hive of activity that draws as many locals as it does visitors. From the moment you pass under the traditional Chinese gates, complete with 320 kilogram stone guard-lions, you'll be treated to a feast for the senses.

Whatever the case, Chinatown is always at the ready to enthral and delight.
It's not just the food that's impressive. Walk around and you'll see Chinatown is alive with the architecture, fabrics, colours and emotions of the Orient.

Every visit to Chinatown takes you on a tour of one of the world' most time-enduring cultures, without leaving the city.
