Post Office Square

Post Office Square
Post Office Square is another of the open spaces within the Central Business District. Bounded by Queen Street and Adelaide Street as its main street access, and with buildings either side, it covers an arcade of shops underneath. The shopping area is predominantly eateries and a food court, however, there is also a pharmacy, newsagent and other specialist shops. Post Office Square was opened in April of 2004.

The main lawn area has been affected by the drought, and subsequent lack of watering. That, however, does not stop the large number of city dwellers who congregate here during their lunchtimes to either eat on the lawns or surrounding seats. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants adjoining the square which offer a range of delectable taste delights! There are also trees to provide some level of shade. On a warm autumn lunchtime its a great place to stop.

Post Office Square
The Square is opposite two of Brisbane's feature locations. On one side is ANZAC Square, and on the other is the General Post Office. It is close to where I walk, and a good place to go to just stretch out and grab a bit, and watch a bit of the local colour. It even has public toilets, which are on the National Toilet Map!

Cheers, I Love Brisbane, Wes.

Dear wes. THis used to be one of my favourite lunch spots. Looking rather un-green at the moment (well, still greener than most of Brisbane, I guess).
