Whether you’re a bargain shopper or a slave to Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo, Brisbane has shopping options to suit. Spread out across every part of the city, you can shop for everything you need (and a whole heap of things you don’t).

Brisbane has great shopping complexes and districts, as well as an emerging fashionista scene with beautiful independent stores opening. Explore and find local designers you love, big name luxury brands you adore, and bargains galore.

DFO Brisbane

Located close to the airport, DFO is the bargain shoppers dream. Direct factory outlets here include Adidas, Aquila, Bed Bath N’ Table, Bendon, City Chic, Converse, Decjuba and so many others. There’s a food court too, so you can shop all day without leaving- great for those Brisbane steaming hot days. It’s open from 10am to 6pm, seven days a week.

Queen Street Mall, Brisbane CBD

This precinct in the heart of the city is home to all things fashion. There are 700 stores, from the big names and well-known brands through to independently owned boutiques. It’s got six main areas.

Queens Plaza is five storeys of David Jones, with the likes of Sass & Bide and Mecca Cosmetics upstairs, and the ground floor with Louis Vuitton, Dior, Tiffany & Co., Salvatore Ferragamo, Bvlgari and so much more.

Wintergarden is identified by the steel butterfly sculpture, and it has an emphasis on menswear. Rodd & Gunn, Peter Sheppard, Oxford, Peter Jackson and when he’s sick of shopping, there’s a Strike Bowling Bar.

170 Queens Street is a three level centre that is mostly H&M and UNIQLO.

The Myer Centre have a two-floor food court and loads of high street fashion such as Sunburn, Just Jeans, Sussan and Tarocash. There’s a huge number of stores here and for any high-street store, this is your go-to.

The Brisbane Arcade is worth a visit for the surroundings alone. It’s two levels of boutique stores filled with local designers. The mall itself is lavish, built in 1923. Book high tea at Room with Roses, enjoying the delightful interior and the delicious raspberry cupcakes.

Tattersall’s Arcade is another historic building, built in 1926. Shop here for high end jewellery and clothing such as Longchamp, Lannah Dunn Fine Jewellery, and Hunt Leather. It also has Dello Mano, the luxury brownie company- which also has a range of other desserts including tartines and pastries.

Fortitude Valley

James Street is the stylish shopping street in Fortitude Valley, and this is where you go to give your credit card a workout. With Pottery Barn and St Barts, your home interior will look amazing. Zimmerman, Kookai and Sass & Bide mean that you will look amazing. And then you’ll need a wine, so you can pop into Harveys to rest your legs.

Winn Lane used to be a series of dark alleyways, but with loads of cute bars and restaurants popping up, there’s plenty of reasons to visit. Coffee, books, vintage markets, a bridal store and then head to The Zoo for live music. Very boho cool.

Emporium is a luxe precinct, with fine dining and high-end fashion. BIFFI has European-styled clothing, Cheeky Bambino for high quality kid’s clothing, and Cudara for beautiful hand-made goods. Then, a meal at Saiko Teppanyaki finishes the day off perfectly.


Latrobe Terrace in Paddington might be a few minutes from town, but it’s worth the trip. Cafes, clothing and homewares abound, and it’s packed with locals scouting out their next must-have. For clothes different to the high-street norm, find Petrol Boutique, The Little Black Dress Shop and Sacha Drake. Or if vintage is your thing, Maiocchi and Ra Ra Superstar are more your jam.

Oxford Street, Bulimba

On the east side of Brissy, Oxford Street has an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants set around a beautiful park. If you have children, My First Room creates bedrooms you won’t see anywhere else, and then to Riverbend Books to find your next reality-escaping read (and a much-needed coffee).

Independent stores

Molten: At 1/49 James Street in Fortitude Valley, you’ll find an accessories store that does things a bit differently. They turn old jewellery into new, reducing the need for mining and manufacturing,  but still creating gorgeous, one-of-a-kind jewellery.

Apartment: Head to level 1, 115 Queen Street to find streetwear that rocks. A range of international labels from around the world complement the very cool, modern feel and lets you find clothes you won’t find anywhere else in Brisbane.

Sallyrose: This boutique has over 40 Aussie designer labels. Head here for KEEPSAKE, Kindred, and Finders Keepers. It’s got an online store as well, but head to 83 Elizabeth Street to see their full range and ferret out Oz designers that you’ll come to love.

Nook: If you like shops that sell ‘things’, then Nook will be your kind of place. As well as beautiful clothes and jewellery, you can find bags, stationary, and a whole bunch of unique homewares. A cute place for a fossick around.

Brisbane markets

The perpetually warm weather in Brisbane makes it the perfect place for markets. And, they don’t disappoint. There are plenty of options to suit what you need.

The Brisbane Night Market is held every Friday from 4pm to 10pm in Rocklea. There are over 40 food stalls, boozy and non-boozy drinks, churros, craft stalls from local artisans, kids’ entertainment, live music, and there’s free parking close by. The perfect start to your weekend.

If you like picking through things searching for treasures, then consider the Suitcase Rummage at Reddacliff Place. On the first and third Sunday every month, this market is about second-hand clothes and bric-a-brac.

For local foods, there are a number of farmers markets where you can pick up the best, freshest produce of the region. Kelvin Grove market is held every Saturday from 6am to 1pm on Blamey Street. In Rocklea, head to 252 Sherwood Road from 6am to 1pm every Saturday. In fact, there’s farmers markets across every corner of the city, so find one near you.

Except for the large malls, most shops are closed on Sunday.
