We are very centrally located in Brisbane City. Brisbane is well connected by road, rail or water. We are located at 15 Adelaide Street (not inside this high rise) on the ground floor outside and next to Subway and above Snap Fitness. The nearest cross street to us is George Street, the closest hotel is the W, and the nearest landmark is City Hall.
We are around a 5 min walk to Uptown (was MYER), David Jones, right in the heart of the City.
If you are close enough to walk, we recommend this. Pop us into your favourite map application and plan your route.
There are also lots of electric scooters and bikes available to rent. Allow a little extra time if you are not a pro at this. If you have your own bike or scooter, we can safely store it in the salon while you have your appointment.
Bus, train or boat (plus cross-river rail and metro coming soon). Always good to plan ahead using the translink journey planner, as there can be disruptions: https://jp.translink.com.au/plan-your-journey/journey-planner

We are less than a 15 min walk from Central, Roma Street and South Brisbane Stations.
The closest ferry stop to the salon is North Quay - again, less than a 15 min walk.
Uber, Didi and Ola all operate extensively in and around Brisbane. Black and White and Yellow Cabs too. There is a taxi rank less than 5 min walk away, and we recommend having ride share pick up or drop off across the road from the salon where there is a loading zone or on George Street as close to the corner of Adelaide Street as possible.
Pre-book your transport as far in advance as possible and allow for delays.
