Every city in the world has distinct pockets of colour, culture and character. London has Covent Garden, Paris has Montmartre, New York has Time Square and out of Brisbane’s many precincts - James Street, Portside, Valley, Oxford Street, South Bank, West End, Chinatown, Manly, the CBD – one stands out from the crowd - Caxton Street.

The famous Caxton Street Precinct with its renowned nightlife and divine dining is the jewel in a crown that includes close proximity to Suncorp Stadium games, Brisbane Arts Theatre, Barracks Cinema and Cafes, Roma Street and South Bank Parklands within walking distance, specialty shopping on Latrobe Terrace or Park Road while right on the doorstep of the CBD.

Today, the Caxton Street Precinct is the heart of Brisbane's burgeoning “place to be scene”. Famous for its diversity of nightclubs, pubs and restaurants, you can also relax in the divine Queensland sunshine while sipping coffee on the street and watch the endless parade of the Street’s miscellany of people.

The surrounding streets in every direction are filled with original Queensland architecture. There are entire Petrie Terrace streets that look like as if they stepped out of the pages of a historical novel.

Petrie Terrace is one of Brisbane’s oldest historical sites with the areas surrounding Caxton Street amongst the earliest parts of Brisbane to be settled by Europeans from the 1850s. Originally known as Green Hills, the site of the notorious Petrie Terrace jail (1860 to 1883) and later the Petrie Terrace Police Depot (early 1880s to late 1980s) – the top end of Caxton Street drips with heritage.
