Special Services: Justice of the Peace available on Tuesday and Thursday, 10am -12.30pm on the Gallery level.

History:

The previous site was a sawmill that was operated earlier during the 1900’s. More recently the shopping center was built over the existing Toowong Railway station. Prior to build, there was controversy over its development – the Queensland Government ruled over the Brisbane town planners to permit the construction of Toowong Village. Until then the Brisbane City Council had refused construction because of traffic concerns that would offshoot into surrounding streets.

The shopping centre includes the Toowong Post Office, the Brisbane City Council Library, photocopying facilities and medical centre.

Inside Toowong Village are four sets of travelators and a (very slow) lift. The travelators enable you to take shopping trolleys to different floors of the building without using the lift.

The exit to the Toowong Railway Station is also located from the Gallery level of Toowong Village, near Sizzler.

Toowong Roundabout

The Toowong Roundabout (also nicknamed “death by roundabout”, by some) is a combination of two roundabouts in close proximity to each other. Getting on and off the roundabouts takes considerable navigational skills, and is adjacent to Toowong Cemetery.

The first roundabout is the connecting link between the western end of Milton Road and the eastern end the Western Freeway that passes through Toowong. It also intersects the road that runs up past the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens to meet Sir Samuel Griffith Drive at a T intersection, a popular route that takes you up to the top of Mt Coot-tha.

The second roundabout is for vehicles that pass from the Centenary Highway (or M5 Motorway) onto Milton Rd, or through Frederick St to travel south to Miskin St.

Getting to the Toowong Roundabout is not a pleasant (or particularly safe) experience during peak hour traffic. If you’re travelling south on Frederick Street you can take the overpass to the right over the first roundabout, stick to the right, and get to the second roundabout while staying mostly out of the way of cars.

However if you travel from any other entry point to the second roundabout then you need to get across two lanes of traffic coming from the first roundabout and the third lane coming from the overpass, all of which are accelerating straight ahead to the freeway (bypassing the second roundabout). You need to get across to the right hand side to be able to turn onto the side lane to the second roundabout.

Another alternative is to enter the first roundabout on the road (from Milton Road or Miskin Street) and get across into the right hand lane before the traffic around you has a chance to start accelerating. The overpass lane then joins in from the right and you don’t have much space to get across it as well before you miss the turn off and end up in the middle lane on the freeway (not where you want to be). The traffic coming off the overpass has already had a bit of distance (downhill) to start accelerating, so this is no easy task. This approach is not recommended unless you are really sure you know what you are doing.
