Getting here

Fortitude Valley is in the heart of Brisbane, right next door to the CBD. The Valley is easily accessible for everyone, with plenty of parking and public transport from pretty much anywhere.


Searching for a taxi? You’ll find them at the taxi ranks spread throughout the Valley, but there are four secure taxi ranks.

Wickham Street, outside McWhirters

Ann Street, opposite Cloudland and another between Warner and Ballow streets

Brunswick Street north (near Wickham Street)

Brunswick Street south (between Ann and McLachlan streets)

Public transport

For those of you catching the train in or out, Fortitude Valley Station is in the Valley Metro and there are plenty of bus stops in the Valley. For more information and to plan your trip, have a look at the TransLink Journey Planner.

If you’re driving, check out the details below for best parking options.

Like we said – getting here is easy, you might never want to leave!


Parking is no challenge in the Valley, with four convenient options to choose from!

In the very centre of the Valley is McWhirters Car Park and Cornerstone Parking, great for anyone visiting The Fortitude Music Hall, Valley’s restaurants, pubs and clubs – and of course for those looking to shop at McWhirters. It’s also centrally located for anyone wanting to check out the Valley laneways. Entry is via Warner Street or Ballow Street. 

Seeing a show at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts or shopping in Brunswick Street Mall? Head to Secure Parking or Wilsons Parking in Brunswick Street. Secure Parking Brunswick Street

At the other end of the Valley you’ll find the Valley Metro Car Park – the best parking for the Brisbane Showgrounds and easy entry from Alfred and Alden streets. 

Heading into Chinatown Mall? Best parking is Chinatown Car Park, of course! Entry is off Gipps or Duncan streets (not sure which…just kidding, you can get in from both).
