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.

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

One of the best things I find in Brisbane are the bike hires that can be collected from different sites in Brisbane. West End is no exception. A hop-skip-jump from South Bank the suburb is, and has been a hive of activity for decades and is still a prime place to be going to on any day of the week.... More

A large variety of cafe's with a lot of choice for food styles. Old buildings, an old area give it an interesting feel to your experience.

West End is just across the river from the Brisbane CBD. It has a very cosmopolitan vibe with lots of cafes,delis and shops. It often gets quite busy and sometimes can be a bit seedy in places.
