With a rich history, this northern slice of Brisbane offers everything in one place. Take your pick from the gorgeous cafes, beauty and wellness hubs, unique home décor options, and more.

The Plant Lounge

If you’re a proud plant parent or looking to transform your space into an urban jungle, The Plant Lounge is where you want to be sticking your green thumb! Locally run by fellow plant lover, Rhiannon Meertens, their local grower is based right here in Queensland – which means plants arrive fresh and lush every week – ready to take centre stage in your home. Can’t make it in store? Enjoy delivery to suburbs within a 25km radius and free potting services with purchases.

Cameo Rose Hair Boutique

Your hair is your glory and the crown you never take off, and no one knows this more than the stellar lady behind Cameo Rose Hair Boutique. In the home of sweet caramel tones, sassy cuts, and the beachiest of waves, you’ll find Cara Barrett working up a stunning storm amongst a team of expert stylists who will pamper you through a personalised service that delivers nothing short of perfection.

Cara never leaves the house with undone hair, so you can rest assured that she’ll indulge you with the same A-list treatment. “I’ve cancelled a catch up with a friend when I was blow-drying my hair and the power went out once so I couldn’t finish it,” says Cara. Likewise, you’ll always leave the suave salon with a ‘do ready for the paparazzi and just the way you like it, whether it’s a clean crop or glam lengths. Plus, there’s no need to load up on the dry shampoo to make your look last as long as possible – Cara and her team are constantly educating themselves with world class trainers and will pass on the skills you’ll need to create a look that works for you.

Cara’s divine service speaks for itself in carefully textured lobs and dimensional colour meticulously placed, creating hair that seems to move even when it’s sitting still. “I love making people feel beautiful and confident,” Cara says. “I love to pamper them and give them a journey in the salon.” With a complimentary consultation and quote for all new customers (so there’s truly no unwanted surprises along the way), Cameo Rose Hair Boutique also offer a range of treatments to take your experience to another level. It’s your beauty goals come to life and even better than you could imagine!

CST Direct + The Aesthetic Collective
