Eat, Drink and Play in Brisbane
When you're visiting a city for the first time, there's nothing better than getting tips from a local on where to eat, where to shop, and for unique suggestions beyond the usual guide book inklings!
We caught up with fashion blogger Juliet Siu for her insider scoop on Brisbane.
Sono, Hamilton – Found in the riverside setting of Hamilton’s Portside Wharf, this Japanese restaurant has the freshest, most authentic-tasting seafood.
Brisbane Jazz Club, Kangaroo Point – This former boat shed sitting on the riverbank has plenty of style and mellow tunes. The live jazz gigs are awesome!
Paddington – Paddington, a couple of kilometres west of Brisbane’s CBD, is a vintage lover’s heaven, with antique shops as well as local designer, vintage and retro clothing stores.
North Stradbroke Island – Who wouldn’t want to be stuck on an island with clear blue water, sandy beaches and curious local wallabies? It’s what honeymooners’ dreams are made of – and just a short ferry ride from Brisbane!
Insider info – Brisbane is home to internationally acclaimed fashion labels Gail Sorronda, George Wu, Black Milk Clothing, Maiocchi, Dogstar and Sabo Skirt.
