Shipping Containers Become the Latest Event and Expo Trend
Eat Street Markets, Brisbane’s newest food expo, is using an amazing blend of shipping container to create a vibrant mix of shipping container restaurants, pop up shops, markets, gourmet spaces and much more.
Hamilton Wharf, a former industrial area, plays host to the Eat Street Markets on Friday and Saturday evenings. This vibrant dining destination is built from over 50 shipping containers that have been modified to become bars, restaurants, market stalls, produce stores and more.
Visitors can stroll through the containerised village atmosphere, meet with friends and experience fabulous food, wine, cocktails, boutique beer and enjoy live entertainment.
Hamilton Wharf is a former shipping container wharf which offers 3 hectares of space on the river in Brisbane’s inner north, an ideal location for the installation. The use of shipping containers answered the need for a creative space with novel architecture while addressing the challenges of security, portability and flexibility.
