Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Sensory overload. So many food options and cool to have different live music options also. Would be better if stalls made smaller portions so you could try more different foods.Written 20 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This was just a couple blocks from the W hotel that we stayed at W while in Brisbane. It’s immediately next to the City Hall and King George Square. There are lots of shops and food options here. Interesting for us is that a lot of the stores were American stores and brands. There’s definitely a lot of American influence in the Australian cities. This a nice place to walk around looking in store and have a bite to eat. We did this on the morning that we were leaving on a redeye flight back to the states so we didn’t spend as much time here as we probably would have liked to.Written 7 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We decided to see the 'Qld to a T' exhibition through their T-towels display & we were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed looking back over time through the various T-towels displayed...who could forget Joh & Flo Bjelke Petersen for a laugh or two?Written 24 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It's been there a long time. Fastidiously maintained. If you want to see the best effort in Christmas decorations hot foot it to this two level arcade. But some hand made chocolates have a coffee in one of the two cafes. Upstairs has many antique jewellers, watchmakers and the Room with Roses restaurant. Upstairs you can get the best view of the Christmas decorations .
There is a fascinating history of the Patrick Mayne family whose land investments in the late 1800s funded this arcade as well as the land for the Uni of Queensland and the Herston Medical School. If you go to the lift the history of the arcade in on the wall. A Brisbane Ghost tour has a fascinating story also of the arcade and any other time you might run into a ghost or two upstairs of a previous milliner and maybe Mrs Mary Mayne herself from the 1860s occupation of this area of Queen Street.
Brisbane is lucky to still have this rare arcade. A fascinating selection of stores and heritage architecture. May it last forever.Written 6 December 2023
- Quiet little place tucked in a basement. Food perfectly prepared- I went with the unadventurous option - lamb cutlets and a salad- both were excellent. Also at the table a perfectly cooked roo steak. Indigenous artworks, bags and jewellery around the walls , available for purchase .
Great place for a quiet lunch.Written 7 October 2022
- Not the greatest mall in the world in terms of design but certainly a staggering array of shops. By the number of outlets perhaps the biggest mall in Queensland? Worth visiting if you're a shopaholic - and on a warm day it has great air-conditioning!Written 6 December 2023
- Free to enter unless you want to go to one of the special exhibitions.
Lots of general knowledge about the planets and history of space travel. We just had a quick look while waiting for the bus !Written 14 October 2023
- It's a local favorite and lots came around 1+pm to grab the last minute specials (the market closes at 2pm)! We bought 5 large and delicious avocados for $3 at one stall!
There are also ample space for picnic in the park besides the market.Written 30 December 2019
- Quite an easy market to find and walk along. A good range of stalls. The tarot card reader must be good as they had a queue waiting for a reading. Lots of great restaurants nearby if hungry.Written 15 January 2023
- Nice place for finding asian food in brisbane area. A lot of choice asian food compare to brisbane chinatown which the shop almost all closing down (dont go to brisbane chinatown, wasting time)Written 13 July 2023

- In flowers always, we can find a worth beyond its beauty, how the choice and fragrance measure against the sweetness of a soul. There is no mystery in the design or concept of flowers, they simply bloom where they grow, each one unique in the Colors on show.
Planted in buckets, a complexion bursting from different shades, welcome to the Rocklea flower markets with their row upon row of bouquets to delight. Your visit will have you designing the perfect arrangement whether it be for a wedding, birthday, celebration or special event.
As you enter the cold rooms Each flower will test your knowledge of floristry and horticulture. Whether it be an orchid, a rose or the natives as your pick, each is but the mirror to the smile you’ll want to share. It’s fragrance what we all seek to replicate and find.
At the Brisbane flower markets, What you will hold in your hands, is yours alone to give, flowers picked by and for you are but the love sending its way back to show the care. These markets really will have you cultivating the art of floral arrangements to share with those you love or to bring further warmth and beauty into your home. Walking through the cold rooms will nurture your spirit and replenish the soul, flooding your mind with pooling thoughts about the abundance of color, the texture by touch and how you will want to form a combination that represents or reminds you of the one you are choosing for. Your purchase really will signify the look you love.

- Maybe without the throng of tourists, the factory outlet was relatively quiet and we had a nice time walking in/out of the shops. Decent food court in the center of the outlet mall if you need to recharge before more shopping.Written 29 July 2022
- The range of shops and eateries is quite good and it is an easy centre to navigate. Parking spaces are plenty, even at busy times but there is no automated rego plate reader system which makes it necessary to stop and use tickets and it costs after 3 hours. Hope that changes soon. The movie theatres are modern and very comfortable.Written 17 January 2020
- Aboriginalartco is the place to buy genuine aboriginal art and artefacts in Brisbane. The gallery is run by a cooperative. These are all indigenous people.
Also priced very reasonably so covers everybody's expenditure. Staff are polite and do not push you into purchasing anything.Written 5 October 2023
