With a history of eccentric characters and a taste for the alternative, Brunswick Street Mall in Fortitude Valley is a magnet for all things boho. Today it's a highly accessible and flourishing destination that has clung to its left of centre edge.
Considered the heart of The Valley's live music scene, its offer is second to none.
