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.
