The Queen Street Mall
The Queen Street Mall is a vibrant shopping and lifestyle precinct that lies at the heart of Brisbane City and is arguably Australia’s most successful pedestrian mall, playing host to over 26 million visitors a year.
The Queen Street Mall offers an unrivalled mix of local, national and international labels and flagship stores. Some 700+ retailers have made their homes here – many enjoy mall and street frontage, others are tucked away inside world-class centres and heritage-listed arcades. QueensPlaza, the latest jewel in the Queen Street Mall crown, is a must visit. Other long-time favourites include Wintergarden (that has just undergone a $100 million redevelopment) and Broadway on the Mall, the magnificent and historically significant Brisbane and Tattersall's Arcades, Queen Adelaide Building, MacArthur Central, and The Myer Centre - which celebrated its 20th birthday in March 2008.
But the Queen Street Mall is not merely the state’s shopping hotspot, it has long been considered Brisbane’s city heart, the place you head with friends and family if it’s fun and entertainment you seek. Over 1,000 events take place throughout the Queen Street Mall each year, including the QSM Live music program, QSM Kids school holiday events, an extensive Christmas entertainment program, sporting team appearances, retail promotions, fresh produce markets and community events. In addition, there is a cinema and casino right on the mall, and countless parklands, museums, galleries, salons, day spas, restaurants and bars can be found in the surrounding Brisbane City streets - you won’t find it hard to amuse yoursel
One of the highlights taking place in and around the mall is City Sounds:
Since 2000 The City Sounds music program has been bringing Brisbane’s emerging music talent to light. They have welcomed touring national and international artists to Queen St Mall’s Main Stage, but at the essence of The City Sounds is their commitment to giving our local music talent a public stage. Last year alone they presented over 750 artists, in over 2,300 performances, across 155 days - making it Australia’s largest free live music program!
They are excited to be presenting music in nine CBD locations every week. With everything from Alternative, Acoustic and Folk, to Jazz, Reggae and Electro genres. Head to The City Sounds Facebook page to stay up-to-date with gigs, new music talent, competitions and more!
