Everything old is new again, though in Woolloongabba, time seems to stand still. Oh modern lifestyle is here: the concrete behemoth that is the iconic Gabba is a benevolent reminder to all things sports while the constant ebb and flow of cars and buses on Stanley Street remains a clear indicator of contemporary city living. But step onto the Woolloongabba Precinct on Little Logan Road, and it’s almost a step back in time. Clearly, the area has been wonderfully preserved, as the iconic and heritage-listed Moreton Rubber Works Building lines flush with other heritage-listed architecture and classic street lamps, setting the scene for a nostalgic streetscape. Absolutely Fabulous, Lavish Essentials, Pearl Café, Crosstown Eating House, Canvas, 1889 Enoteca and BirdCage Restaurant keep to a timeless style and panache that marks Little Logan Road as one of The City’s most exclusive independent business addresses.
And to this distinctive boulevard comes The End Of The Line Festival, a unique block party especially crafted to suit Woolloongabba, where café culture, fine dining, fine wine-ing and antiques are testimonials to the lifestyle incubated by postcode 4102. Food, wine and antiques are celebrated in this unique fair, with street markets, live music and entertainment, an antique roadshow, historical displays, an open air cinema and the Penny Farthing Parade, presented by the Queensland Penny Farthing and Historical Cycle Club.
