5 Things to Do in Woolloongabba- A little bit of everything

Woolloongabba, a suburb of Brisbane, has a little bit of everything like shopping, adventure, sports and food for everyone. Here are 5 must-visit places and to do things.


The Gabba

Also known as the Brisbane Cricket Grounds is a major stadium and a famous attraction in the city. If you are a cricket enthusiast, you must be a part of the match from this spot! The first ever match to be held on this ground was on the 19th of December 1896. Despite being called the cricket grounds, the Gabba has hosted other games like athletics, rugby, baseball and so on.



There are many places to shop from; ranging from second-hand bookstores to household items, you can find anything over here! Most shopping areas are in close proximity to many hotels. Woolloongabba, is, therefore, a central location, making it very accessible for you to make a quick dash outside and come back. One such hotel is the Oaks Woolloongabba. There is a local shop named AbsoFab which is well known among the younger generation for the variety of accessories and gifts they have. If you love antique items, or vintage inspired anything, you are bound to find something here!
Fortitude Valley is filled with local designers, while the Emporium targets the high-end fashion market. The Paddington is more of a place where you can find vintage fashion, books and homewares. You could find fridge magnets here which would make an ideal souvenir for either yourself or a friend or family.


The Story Bridge Adventure Climb

Located in Kangaroo Point only a few kilometres away from the centre of Woolloongabba, is one of the best ways to discover the breathtaking panorama of Brisbane. It's a 2-hour journey and including ascending the bridge's superstructure up to its 80-metre summit, from which you are able to see a 360-degree view of the city and its lakes. Anyone and everyone above the age of 10 is allowed to go on this tour. The cost for an adult ranges from AUS $99- 160. Advanced booking is highly recommended.


Adventures galore at Kangaroo Point

Consider abseiling at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, a popular spot for abseiling! Or give rock climbing a go; they offer rock climbing for everyone- beginners as well. The cliff is only about 20 meters high and therefore, not as challenging.
If you are not someone who likes adventures and would rather enjoy a peaceful evening with good food, then head on to the base of the hill, where there are any electric barbeques and a picnic area.


St. Nicholas Cathedral

This is the oldest Orthodox Russian church, built during 1935 and the construction ended during the early 1950s. It was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register on the 21st of October, in 1992 and marks a significance in the evolution of the Queensland's history. The distinctive towers of the church contribute to the streetscape and have an aesthetic significance.
