West End and surrounds | Cafes, pubs and parks

The inner-city suburbs of West End, Highgate Hill, and South Brisbane are bursting with lifestyle and leisure options, while also offering some of the lushest parks our beautiful city has to offer.

Head to All the Green Things in West End for some plant inspiration, or pick up some wild reads for little hands at the book shop, Where the Wild Things Are.

All that shopping worked up an appetite? Satisfy your cravings with a visit to Dovetail Social in Highgate Hill, or try some craft beer at Saccharomyces Beer Cafe in South Brisbane.
