This Brisbane restaurant uses reclaimed timber to create an interior design inspired by a former mining town. Located in Northern Territory, Jabiru is a former mining town that now has a place in the Central Business District of downtown Brisbane. Called Jabiru Bar & Restaurant, the enchanting eatery features a conceptual ceiling installation that resembles the abandoned mining site located within the town of Jabiru.

Designed by agency Creative 9, Jabiru Bar & Restaurant generally feels like a tribute to the Australian outback, with materials like rusted metal, sandstone and recycled copper recalling tones contained in the desert. The establishment boasts casual seating options that recall the imagery of enjoying a picnic, which is balanced out by the mixture of organic materials.
