The Renaissance Precinct of Brisbane is located at Woolloongabba.
Some say Woolloongabba means “meeting place” in local Aboriginal dialect and certainly for ‘The Gabba’ (as it affectionately known to locals) and East Brisbane, it’s a fitting phrase. On game day, the footpaths that wind from the Central Business District towards the commanding structure that is The Gabba Cricket Ground overflow with fans dressed head to toe in the colours of their favourite cricket or AFL team.
Boasting Brisbane’s most well-known road and street names outside of the Central Business District, including Vulture, Stanley, Lytton, Logan and Main, Woolloongabba and East Brisbane are home to old facades, creative industries, quirky boutiques, trendy restaurants and antique stores that carry the fragrance of old timber, books and bric-a-brac.
The Gabba Village and surrounds has created a cosmopolitan vibe with boulevards and streetscapes shaping the perfect environment for European footpath dining among the outdoor lounge spaces and quirky street furniture.
