Chinatown Mall

Fortitude Valley, Brisbane Area

Maybe it's the hustle and bustle of the Chinese supermarkets, the smells and sounds of exotic ingredients meeting a sizzling wok, or the steaming Yum Cha breakfasts shared with friends that bring people back time and time again. 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. The Chinatown Mall is an animated shopping and entertainment destination that plays host to weekend markets and special events.

Milton is all about the restaurants and is a little corner of Europe within Brisbane with the iconic La Dolce Vita taking centre stage since 1989. It has the charm and the sophistication but with the everyday casual flamboyant attitude to it. A favourite with the in-crowd, this lively street is characterised by the expensive sports cars that jostle for prime parking positions outside gift shops, fashion houses and restaurants that surround a replica of the Eiffel Tower - now a symbol of Park Road's cosmopolitan nature. Milton is also home to the XXXX Ale House and Brewery where on any given day, the fragrant smell of hops will envelop you. Head towards the river and take a casual stroll along the picturesque riverside walkway to the famous Heritage-listed Regatta Hotel - one of Brisbane's oldest pubs.
