WHILE YOU’RE THERE

Home Beautiful - - {SHOP} -

If you need to put your feet up af­ter a long day of shop­ping, take in an art-house film at the Palace Cen­tro Cin­e­mas (palacecin­e­mas.com.au). You could also slip into Sixes And Sev­ens, a charm­ingly ren­o­vated gabled 1878 cot­tage, and share a restora­tive carafe of wine served from the bar­rel (sixes.com.au). If you’re up for a – longish – stroll, fol­low James Street on to Lam­ing­ton Street and then down to Bris­bane Pow­er­house, an his­toric arts and cul­ture cen­tre on the Bris­bane River (bris­banepow­er­house.org). Even if you don’t book in to a show, the build­ing it­self is worth a look – and you might just catch the lo­cal cir­cus troupe re­hears­ing death-de­fy­ing rou­tines from the ex­te­rior walls. Pre­fer a qui­eter end to the day? Find some shade be­neath a tree, spread out a pic­nic blan­ket and watch the wa­ter life drift by from the river banks.
