West End Overview

West End is an inner-city suburb of southern Brisbane.


Public Transport

The suburb is well serviced by buses and ferries. Bus services include Route 199 BUZ to New Farm-City-West End Ferry, leaving every 5 minutes, Route 192 University of Queensland to City, Route 198 Highgate Hill Hail & Ride (Coles West End-PA Hospital-Woolloongabba-Vulture St-Coles West End) and a City Glider service along Montague Road. CityCat services leave from the West End ferry wharf in Orleigh Street. The ferry terminal was destroyed in the 2011 floods. It was replaced and operating on the 24 July 2011. Electronically secured BCC bicycle sheds exist near the West End Ferry Terminal and on Montague Road.



The area's major attraction is its cafe and restaurant scene, as well as its shopping, which is centred along Boundary Street. It is also known for its high concentration of ethnic and organic grocery stores. Davies Park on the riverside hosts one of the largest Farmer's markets in Greater Brisbane every Saturday between 6am and 2pm. West End has an industrial backbone, in particular, along Montague Road down to Riverside Drive. Given the value of riverside property now that flooding is better managed, factories are now being sold to make way for upscale waterfront apartments. This is part of a plan to increase population densities in near-city suburbs. It will significantly affect the ability of working class people to remain in the area and change the economic make-up of the area. As such, West End is currently undergoing urban renewal, with an enormous change in real estate prices, and new development changing the area demographic.



West End was named by early English settlers who found the area reminiscent of the West End of London. West End was one of the first suburbs of Brisbane to be serviced by a tram line, being opened in 1885. Initially the tram was horse-drawn and terminated in Boundary Street, but in 1897 the line was electrified and extended to the southern end of Hardgrave Road, via Vulture Street. It was subsequently extended down Hoogley Street to the ferry terminus at the end of Hoogley Street. The tram line closed on 13 April 1969. The former Tristram's Drink Factory, 79 Boundary St, West End, built in 1928 and one of Australia's best examples of the Mission Revival Style architecture was converted into a market in the 1990s and remains a heritage landmark of West End. Scenes for the feature film Jucy (2010) were shot at the now-defunct video store Trash Video in the suburb. The suburb was affected by the 2010 - 2011 Queensland floods as the Brisbane River broke its banks. From 11 January low-lying areas of the suburb and other places in Brisbane were evacuated.
