Brisbane’s Chinatown stretches from Alfred St to McLachlan St, and Gipps St to Constance St in Fortitude Valley, just one kilometre north of the CBD. It is centred on Brunswick Street Mall. Locals and visitors alike mingle in this bustling part of the city, crowding the Chinese supermarkets, looking for exotic ingredients, or looking for a Yum Cha meal shared with friends. The area is also one of Brisbane city’s live music venue and bar hot spots.

After you enter Chinatown Mall, passing under the traditional Chinese gates and guarded by huge stone lions, you get to experience a touch of oriental architecture, cuisine and culture which is unlike other parts of this subtropical city. Its diverse businesses cater for all and it is the hub of Asian commercial and cultural activity. Streets are signed in both Chinese characters and English.
