Best Things To Do In Salisbury
Salisbury, the old Brisbane industrial suburb of wartime factories and tiny timber workers cottages adjoining Toohey Forest is becoming Brisbane’s newest secret hub of cool, especially in the Ammunition Factory precinct.
In this historic industrial zone, where the weapons and artillery of Australia’s World War II effort were manufactured under cover, the quaint back streets with names like Chrome and Machinery Drive, are quietly coming to life again. Here, old wartime factories and sheds are being converted into funky cafes, a microbrewery and vintage shopping haunts.
