There’s been great change over the years yet diversity remains essential to its appeal. Where timber mills, boot makers and fizzy drink factories once stood, West End now houses the Queensland Ballet, academies of learning and an assortment of hip bars, cafés and boutiques. Old and new sit side by side in layers of interest, history and excitement.
Since the heady days of the early 70s, The Glass Factory has been home to the Decorative Glass Company. Imbued with local colour and history, it retains a sense of connectedness to what is one of Brisbane’s oldest and most vibrant suburbs.
Boundary Street forms one of Brisbane’s most interesting neighbourhoods with its multi-cultural atmosphere adding vibrancy to its eclectic mix of restaurants, cafés, delicatessens, vintage clothing and bookstores. Stroll along Boundary Street and dip into the cross-cultural vibe where Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian communities live side by side.
