08 Jan FRIDAY FILES – Local Travel QLD
With international travel plans put on hold for now, this month we are looking at local travel and attractions in Boyac’s home states. This week is dedicated to Queensland, and just a few of our favourite local hot spots and attractions.
EAT + SHOP: Steak & Oyster, James Street, Fortitude Valley
James Street is the social hub for all things lux, the perfect place for a little bit of up market retail therapy. Dotted with designer stores and luxury independent boutiques, it has become known as Brisbane’s high-end shopping strip.
Boutique hotel, The Calile, is situated on James Street and is known for its luxury day spa, and a number of award-winning restaurants. Steak & Oyster is it’s newest addition, a modern, upmarket take on the classic bar and grill.
