The inner south-eastern suburb of Woolloongabba is full of surprises. Uncover treasures in the neighbourhood’s antiques stores or find your own cosy space in a café. Old-fashioned corner pubs still man the crossroads, while local restaurants serve up modern Australian fare. See history in the making at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, otherwise known as the Gabba. Cheer on the Brisbane Lions at a home game or reserve a seat for international cricket matches.

Apparently very unsafe suburb to walk around at night which is the whole reason I chose to stay there as it is a very short walk to the PA hospital & to reduce hospital car parking charges however hospital staff advised not to walk on my own at night
