Boundary Street is the heart of West End, with a string of services, shops, restaurants, cafe's and bars providing a very cosmopolitan experience. Nearby weekend farmers markets offer some excellent fresh produce, and the whole area is river bound providing access to long bike & walkways. Don't make plans, just go and check it all out, stopping wherever takes your... More

West End has lots of different options for food and drinks. Trendy atmosphere. People are happy and friendly. It is busy, but you can still get a park without too much trouble (most of it is metered street parking). It was easy walking distance to the SouthBank area (about 15 mins). I would go back here for sure.

Still one of the "in" places. Lots of little popular cafes and restaurants and bars. About 1 kilometre walk from the city centre, or catch a bus. parking can be difficult, especially on a Saturday or most evenings. Some interesting little shops too - from the new age to 2nd hand books. Worth a look around.

If you are looking for a little hippy chic then West End is the place to go..It is only a short bus ride or maybe a 20 minute walk from the Brisbane City Centre. There is a very multi-cultural feel to the centre represented by a wide range of restaurants, bistros and cafes from traditional Australian to Italian to Asian... More

West end is a nice area to visit is Brisbane, it has several interesting restaurants and bars with good drinks and good music. However, if you go out be prepared for a large bill at the end of the night.

West End is a representative slice of Brisbane if only because of the various cultures present in the list of places to eat here. You can't run out of places to eat if you decide to go to West End for a bite. There's also a lot of cafes if you just want to chill or have a nice cup... More
