Logan lies between the south of Brisbane and the north of the Gold Coast, and is a flourishing destination of its own, with a multicultural vibe and historical sites. Popular with young families, the city of Logan has heaps of fun things to see and do for locals and visitors alike.

Head to the Global Food Market

If you want a true taste of Logan’s multiculturalism, head to the Global Food Market for a taste of seasonal produce you won’t find in your local supermarket, including dragonfruit, jackfruit, custard apples, lychees, rambutan, mangosteen and more.

It’s also a great place to get yourself a delicious breakfast from a range of cuisines, including South-East Asian, Indian, African, Pacific Islands, and the Middle East.   

Admission is free.
