Loulou Moxom’s Top Braddon Experiences

Posted on

In collaboration with VisitCanberra, we asked Loulou Moxom, owner of Moxom + Whitley florist on Lonsdale Street, for the low-down on Braddon’s must-do experiences.

I first moved onto the strip in 2012 when the Lonsdale Street Traders worked out of an old warehouse—we were surrounded by mechanics and car yards, and there was precious little to eat or drink in the vicinity.

Now you can grab your turmeric-laced green smoothie with charcoal, kombucha, and activated raw frothed acai pretty much anywhere. But jokes about the hipster invasion aside, I feel blessed to work on a street where there is a common bond of pride and love. It’s a community, a neighbourhood, a hub, and a vibe.

So, where do I go when I am not creating floral artistry or teaching the fine art of flower arranging to the masses?

COFFEE FIRST

Firstly, I will be drinking my early almond flat white from Elemental next door. I love this little family-run joint and you’ll often spot a Raider or cool politician or two there.

At 7.45 am it’s also dog central so if you need a woofer cuddle it’s the place to be.

BRADDON IS COVETED FOR ITS SHOPS

Shopping on our street always means buying something different, something thoughtfully curated, something handmade by bespoke creators.

Shops like HiveTimber & TailorEnigma ChocolatesBlissiimoBisonhomeKINSancho’s, Lellow… and that’s just the first half once you cross the rainbow roundabout. Yes. You read that right. It lights up at night too.

FEAST AT LUNCH

Try Sweet Bones Bakery for my vegan loves or eighty/twenty and Barrio…And that’s just morning to arvo treats.

For lunch and dinner, you will find me every week having a burger with Mr Moxom at Grease Monkey, and we always love Zaabeightysix, and Rizla.

GET GLAM FOR A NIGHT OUT

But, wait. Did you know that Lonsdale Street is also a place for getting yourself beautified? Whether that means a blow-dry, tattoo, colonic or tan, we have everything you need.

Once you’re looking hot, try Assembly for great food, drinks, a cheeky outback garden and proper good people watching.

Do this too at Tipsy Bull but inject gin and Spain into the mix and also Hopscotch but minus the Spanish part and inject cheeky Aussieness instead. Back over the road and always the best—ye good olde Civic Pub please! Steaks, pool, darts, front beer garden… noice.
