One of the oldest suburbs in Brisbane, Woolloongabba is famous for The Gabba Cricket Ground, antique shops, boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Wandering the Woolloongabba antique precinct is a wonderful way to spend the day.

A stone's throw from The Gabba, the Woolloongabba antique precinct is lined with beautiful heritage listed buildings and whimsical street lights with lampshades.

One of the more memorable buildings is the Moreton Rubber Works Building, with two fine dining restaurants located on the lower level: Bistrot Bistro French Restaurant and 1889 Enoteca Italian Restaurant, Cellar and Wine Store.

This small shopping and dining precinct, on Logan Road, has a cornucopia of coffee shops and restaurants to choose from. The Pearl Cafe is famed for its brunches. The Crosstown Eating House is another popular choice for breakfast or lunch. Thai Rose offers traditional Thai food, eat in or take away.

For coffee and a sweet treat, try Five Sugars located inside Lavish Essentials, or Brewed Awakenings located opposite The Gabba in the Moreton Rubber Works Building.

There are a number of antique dealers to discover including Colonial Collectables, Twice Upon A Time, and The Gabba 5 Ways Antique Emporium. Also check out the nearby Woolloongabba Antique Centre on Wellington Road, for antiques, vintage fashion, and retro homewares.

Visit Absolutely Fabulous and Lavish Essentials for modern and retro-inspired homewares, jewellery, fashion, stationary, and gifts.

Other recommended restaurants in Woolloongabba, close to the antique precinct, include Purple Gorilla, Desmond and Molly Jones , Goa-Doodle-Do, and Vespa Pizza.
