Best Things To Do In Stones Corner
Stones Corner has had many incarnations over the years, from its origin as Burnett’s Swamp to the birthplace of Stones Ginger Beer (which was once sold on the corner here), from which it acquired its name. By mid last century it was a fashionable shopping hub with Finney Isles and Co department store and the Alhambra picture theatre, after which decades followed as a factory outlet destination. Today, with most of the discount retail moved on, it’s emerging itself as a quirky alternative eats and drinks precinct with some interesting boutiques and shops thrown in.
So if it’s been a while (or never) since a trip to this laidback tree-trimmed village with the jumble of architectural styles and colourful local characters, here are a bunch of good reasons to visit:
This Middle Eastern grocery store is a longtime resident of the main shopping strip, from where it sells an impressive range of Middle Eastern foodstuffs, kitchen wares and self care products.
A little vintage and second hand shop, Treasures 4 You is a great place to browse with its quirky collection of vinyl, jewellery, comic books, collectables and memorabilia...more
As a bonus getting to Stones Corner has never been easier. The Eastern Bus Way station is a stones’ throw down the road on Old Cleveland Rd for those coming from UQ at St Lucia, Dutton Park and PA Hospital and west-siders can take the Maroon glider from Bardon all the way through to Stones Corner. The green belt bikeway (and walk trail) from East Brisbane and Woolloongabba leads to Old Cleveland Rd and, as mentioned above, it’s possible to walk or ride on the green belt path from Annerley.
