Sundays on Fish Lane

From that first sip of espresso in the morning to the final whisky in the evening, there are few things brighter than the sight of Fish Lane on a lazy, sunny Sunday

Charge up and shake off any cobwebs from the night before with brunch at award-winning Gauge. Read the paper and savour fresh, buttery pastries or catch up with friends over Marvel Street coffee and soft eggs with crispy kale and parmesan on sourdough.

Feeling revived? It’s time to devour more than just breakfast – culture is calling.

Head across the way to Brisbane’s cultural centre, where you could spend hours wandering the luxe hallways of GoMA and the Queensland Art Gallery. Admire the permanent Australian art collection, gasp at the rotating modern art and treat yourself to something from the gift shop – you’ve earnt it.

Pacing around art galleries is bound to give anyone an appetite, so wander down the mural-covered laneway to La Lune.

The modern wine bar is the perfect spot for a long lunch, particularly on Sunday when Chef Peter Moon creates the ultimate spread of five courses delectable courses for just $50. Thirsty? Add matched wines for an additional $45.

After you’ve eaten and drunk your fill you have two options. Either you can make your way up the stairs to the top of the Fox Hotel, where you will find the Dandy’s Rooftop Bar Sunday Session in full swing, or enjoy an Old Fashioned in the quiet comfort of Maker.

Sunday might be a day of rest, but there’s always room for play on Fish Lane!
