Best Things to Do in Moorooka
The inner south side suburb of Moorooka, which backs on to the original Brisbane bush tracts of Toohey Forest, dates from the 1920's when the first housing estate was built in Queenslander Ashgrovian style, with street names taking their names from World War I. Since then the suburb expanded with a major brick war estate built in the late 1960's and in the late 1980's saw an influx of African migrants, who established home and businesses there so that the main shopping strip along Beaudesert Rd became known locally as 'Little Africa'.
Today Moorooka is well worth a visit for its colourful multicultural shopping centre, with its traditional Eritrean, Ethiopian and Middle eastern eateries, grocery stores and mixed businesses as well as funky cafes and Brisbane's oldest Chinese restaurant:
