Esk Trading Post

Esk

Esk, a tiny township just an hour and half’s easy weekend drive from Brisbane, is home to Esk Trading Post, an indoor and outdoor source of country and antique treasures and procurements.

Here, you will find everything from furniture to thimbles, with heaps of unexpected treasures and finds in between.

Petrol heads and motoring enthusiasts will be fuelled with anticipation of a visit, and it’s a common weekend sight to see motorbikes lined-up out front, with Esk being a popular destination for a cruisey bike ride and a spot of vintage shopping.

Retro engine oil signs make a great addition to any man cave, and the aged wagon wheels are just the thing as a statement piece for a country garden look.

Need to know – The range is ever-changing so make sure you ask the staff if there’s something in particular that you’re after or call ahead before your visit.
