Chinatown (Brisbane)

Since opening in 1987, Brisbane’s very own Chinatown has become firmly established as a major centrepoint for Asian cultural and commercial activity.

Starting the tour

Start from Central Station.

Section 1:

As you exit the station (via the main entrance) turn left down Ann Street. Continue walking for around 15-20 minutes. Turn left onto Duncan Street (after Gipps Street)


Brisbane’s Chinatown is just one street long – and what a lively, cultural, beautifully decorated street it is. From end to end it is rammed with Chinese restaurants, massage therapists, acupuncturists and herbalists. The stone lions placed at both the Ann Street and Wickham Street entrances represent cultural respect and friendship, also warding off evil spirits. There is also a large supermarket selling everything you would ever need for cooking Asian cuisine.

The Valley Markets in Chinatown Mall run on Fridays (3pm-late) and weekends (8am-4pm) These fresh produce markets are popular amongst both locals and visitors. There are also free tai chi classes every Sunday morning at 11am!
