Queen Street Mall extends 500 metres across the heart of downtown Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. This massive retail hub stretches from George Street to Edward Street and over 700 shops attracts tourists worldwide. Queen Street Mall has created a healthy increase of revenue into the downtown Brisbane economy.
An exclusive outdoor entertainment stage and six prominent retail areas cover the vast expanse of the Queen Street Mall. The Winter garden is one of the most popular destinations, boasting three tiers of more than 70 stores and the unique added features of a gymnasium and bowling alley. The Myer Centre is the largest of the six areas offering 200 shopping options spread across multiple building levels. The Myer Centre also contains the Queen Street Mall’s largest department store.
Brisbane’s train network runs routes to the nearest Central Station, making for easy access to Queen Street Mall. Secure parking is plentiful underneath the centre, and many intersecting roads allow for transit by car or taxi. Additionally, the Queen Street Bus Station is located in the mall.
Since the development of the Queen Street Mall in 1982, the location has undergone vast enhancements and renovations. The city spent 25 million dollars in 1999 to replace the original tiling with granite.
