In case you haven’t noticed, West End has been undergoing a facelift in the past 12 months or so. There are two new developments in the inner city suburb that have added even more character and charm to West End.
The former Peters Ice Cream Factory on the corner of Boundary and Mollison streets, has been transformed into a new village.
The Peters Ice Cream Factory and its 1920s brick warehouse are the heart and centre of West End and comprises of a mix of apartments, townhouses and penthouses set within a retail, lifestyle and cultural precinct.
The old dilapidated buildings have been carefully restored to their former glory, designed to complement modern architecture while celebrating its historic past. Designed with plenty of lush green spaces, restaurants, markets, boutiques and bars buzz amidst covered laneways anchored around two heritage factories.
There is a brand new dining precinct called The Garden Pantry featuring Italian cuisine from Salt Meats Cheese, ultra-fresh seafood from Cheeky Poke Bar, and flavours of the east from Mr Bunz. Here you can sit back and enjoy the peaceful surrounds of the Common, including the magical LightGarden, while indulging in some of West End’s best food and drinks.
The function venue called The Bromley Room #2, is far from your average function room. The room is also open to the public as a gallery and showcase of art, sculpture and homewares from Bromley & Co and other local artists.
During the summer school holidays there is great entertainment for the little ones:
- West Village Twilight Kids – includes Bubble workshops, Slime workshops, Lantern making and a Silent Disco Yoga. Four days per week from 4pm-6pm.

West End Recreation Hub
The West End Recreation Hub, the city’s first ever river hub, officially opened to the public last October. It’s located on Riverside Drive between Kurilpa and Rogers Streets in West End, and provides river access and a way for tourists and locals to access the area and local businesses.
The public pontoon features:
- A new launch site and short-term use area for non-motorised craft including kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards.
