This historical stretch of Brisbane Street bordered by Ellenborough and Waghorn Streets, has cafés, restaurants, vintage stores, clothing boutiques, a luxury massage/spa, homewares and collectibles on offer. You’ll be impressed by the original shop façades and heritage buildings such as the Old Flour Mill Building, designed by renowned architect George Brockwell Gill, and now a retail centre.

For sustenance, choose from Rafter and Rose Café, The Retro Diner or Fourthchild Café and Restaurant. Pumpyard Bar and Brewery at 88 Limestone Street is the local place to be with its funky industrial décor and onsite-brewed craft beers.
