Albert Street, Brisbane
Albert Street Mall from King George Square.
Albert Street is a road in Brisbane, Australia. It was named after Prince Albert, the Prince Consort of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, and it originally ran from Alice Street to Wickham Terrace. The section between Adelaide Street and Ann Street has now been included in King George Square.
The section of Albert Street between Queen Street Mall and Adelaide Street has now been converted into part of the Mall, in connection with the busway tunnel from the Queen Street bus station to the King George Square busway station.
The southern part of Albert Street is low-lying and prone to flooding. It was part of the Frog's Hollow district.
Albert Hall was an entertainment venue from 1901 to 1969 on the north side of Albert Street between Ann Street and Turbot Street, to the left of Albert Street Methodist (now Uniting) Church. Albert Hall was replaced by the SGIO / Suncorp Building.
