A nice pedestrian street with lots of good restaurants and funky shops to visit. Centrally located, it can be visited as you stroll along the riverfront, going from one of town to the other. It was reminiscent of Haight Street in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district.

An interesting range of shops and local characters, musicians and sculptures, Cuba St offers it all. In particular, make sure you check out Pegasus 2nd hand Bookshop down the lane at the northern end (Manners St). A huge variety of book subjects and titles.
