West End is my favorite suburb in Brisbane. It has an amazing community. Great places to eat, awesome bookshops, friendly local characters, a really cool involved local member and some beer specialty places. An inner city suburb but has the heart of a country town.

When you drive through or wander around West End, you find a lot of the shop fronts a little on the dilapidated side. There is no real parking in the area and if you get one you need to check the meter. There have been some very good shops (a men's tailor run by two elderly Greek brothers since the... More

West End has a village atmosphere just 2 klms from the city centre of Brisbane. There are countless cafes and restaurants with foods from all around the world. Greek is popular here due to the area having a large Greek population, followed by asain cultures, Italian, Modern Australian, Turkish, Lebanese, French,and more. Easily accessible by bus or train.

West End has so many restaurants and new buildings you will not recognize the suburb if you haven't been there for five years When we wish to go out and enjoy a good meal this is where we go and are never disappointed. Friendly people, nice clean streets and wonderful food are to be found at West End

Brisbane can see very culturally bland until you get out and about and explore places like West End. With the mix of restaurants and cafes, some quirky stores and just the people you see as you wander around, West End is such an eclectic mixture of cultures and styles. Each time I visit there is something different to admire. Worth... More

We stayed in West End and though the area is extremely lively with multi- cultural restaurants, museums, water front on Brisbane river, our condo was very quite with great views. Every place is walking distance. We loved it.
