126 Brisbane Street‚ Ipswich

If you love discovering something a little different and eclectic when you’re shopping, Ipswich’s Top of Town fits the bill. 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 & Rose Café, Nourish, Deann’s Coffee House, Cactus Espresso Bar, or Fourthchild Café and Restaurant. Pumpyard Bar & Brewery at 88 Limestone Street is the local place to be with its funky industrial décor and onsite-brewed craft beers.

Fashionistas will be obsessed with Obsession Shoes, which carries overseas cult brands, while Diamond Dames has custom-made and limited edition retro frocks and accessories. Other specialty shops are Daily Planet comics, C.J. Vogler & Son – a hobby and model store which opened in 1877 – and stylish kitchen and homeware store, Gemütlich.
