Live. Loud. Proud
Fortitude Valley is a contradiction in itself, raw yet sophisticated, where elegance and style meets grungy and offbeat. A place where heritage listed properties proudly stand amongst new and contemporary structures.
The Valley, as it’s affectionately known by locals, was Australia’s first dedicated entertainment district and continues to be a hive of activity, alive with the sounds of people and music. Live music thrives in venues such as The Zoo and Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and international DJs are drawn to the super clubs and chic bars.
The impressive Chinatown Mall is a hub of exotic Chinese supermarkets, traditional restaurants serving authentic Yum Cha and trendy markets. Explore the quirky laneways where shopping enthusiasts can pick up unique fashion pieces at the retro boutiques and designer dress shops.
Fortitude Valley is also made up of a number of smaller lifestyle strips, offering a mix of restaurants and shopping in atmospheric settings. The Emporium complex channels a European village feel, James Street showcases Australian fashion labels and Brunswick Street is home to a multicultural assortment of dining options.
