Get Christmas Shopping with Our Fortitude Valley Accommodation
With Annexe Apartments, be a stone's throw from Fortitude Valley: one of Brisbane’s leading shopping precincts where you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking to shop for gifts, homewares, fashion and more.
Fortitude Valley hotspots include Brunswick Street Mall, Winn Lane and Emporium, with a superb restaurant choice on Wickham Street, James Street and Ann Street. This December, you’ll also find a number of pop-up market stalls selling a variety of festive goods and treats. For another world-class shopping experience, head to Queen Street Mall, which you can reach within a short walk after viewing the Christmas tree in King George Square.
Jo Koy Just Kidding at Brisbane Convention Centre
For an evening of laughter this holiday season, catch Jo Koy’s upcoming performance at Brisbane Convention Centre. A global name in stand-up comedy, Jo Koy will stop in Southbank for one night only on his brand new tour Just Kidding, and for fans and anyone looking to laugh it up Christmas, it's the must-see stand-up event this December.
Loved the world over for his hilariously relatable anecdotes on family and culture, Jo Koy, armed with brand new material, is all set to leave Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre howling in laughter on December 6.
Love Actually in Concert
If Love Actually is your go-to film each Christmas, don’t miss it on the big screen this December with a live orchestra performing the memorable film soundtrack in full.
At Brisbane Convention Centre, re-enjoy the 2003 romantic blockbuster starring Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Colin Firth and the rest on a state-of-the-art screen with the full soundtrack by Craig Armstrong performed live with an orchestral twist. Love Actually Live in Concert is coming to Brisbane for one date only, so make sure you’re part of the audience on December 12.
A Christmas Carol
Everyone loves Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and this December, it’s coming to Queensland Performing Arts Centre - a 10-minute drive from our Bowen Hills apartments - for ten whole days.
Brought to you by Shake & Stir Theatre Co, don’t miss this all-new stage adaptation featuring some of Australia’s most talented stage performers with authentic costumes and live carol numbers.
