All laundromats are open 24 hours.
Lutwyche: 544 Lutwyche Rd
Paddington: 284 Given Tce
West End: 85 Hardgrave Rd
Taringa: 69 Westerham St
All laundromats offer first class, internationally renowned brand Dexter Laundry washers & dryers. Together with an automatic detergent dispensing system, free internet WiFi & Pay by Mobile, we hope to provide all our customers with the best laundromat experience in Brisbane.
Look out for our memorable green & orange colours at these locations, and pop your laundry in for a quick wash & dry at Snap Laundromat.
Typical Australian households can expect to spend approximately 15 hours per week doing laundry chores – yuck!
This is where Snap Laundromats can help:
Wash in less than 25 mins using Snap’s stainless steel washing machines.
Our HUGE machines fit more washing – Our Dexter front loader washing machines have a huge bowl capacity compared to domestic machines. Our customers can wash double loads, triple loads or even 5 plus basket loads in our MEGA washer. The MEGA washer can take up to a massive 23 kilograms and is perfect for huge items like doonas, blankets and curtains.
Wash multiple loads at once! Get a week’s worth of laundry done by loading multiple washing machines at the same time. All the washing is done in less than 25 minutes rather than all day long. Bring clothes, sheets, towels – bring everything – and wash at the same time.
Express drying – our Dexter dryers have the reputation for being the industry’s best performing dryers. A standard load of washing can be dried in less than 30 minutes, compared to household dryers that can take well over an hour to dry.
WiFi while you wait – Use the waiting time effectively by utilising our free & fast internet WiFi to catch up on emails, study, research or Google.
With two Brisbane locations (Taringa | Paddington), our laundries are also located next to some of Brisbane’s best cafes and restaurants – so why not pop your washing in, grab a coffee and start saving time NOW.
Is your laundry so shockingly boring & dreaded that you zone out like a space cadet? It doesn’t need to be: snappy choices can help you get your laundry done in a fast, convenient & interesting way.
Get Snappy:All of the stainless steel front loader washing machines at Snap Laundromats, including the huge Maxi and Mega washers, take less than 25 minutes to finish! The unique benefit of using a quality laundromat is that you can save time by loading multiple washing machines simultaneously – whites in one, darks in a second machine, and dedicates in another – so that the entire week’s worth of laundry is all done at once.
Make Life Ezi:You don’t even need to find cash or detergent to use at the laundromat anymore! Snap Laundromat at Taringa has internet-enabled the washing machines and dryers, so you can conveniently use your smart phone to pay and activate all machines using Eziwash. Both Brisbane laundromats are also connected to an automatic detergent dosage system, providing high quality detergent free of charge!
Be WiFi’ed: Available 24/7, use the time effectively by connecting to the free & fast internet WiFi. Study, research, email or google – while the machines do all the hard work – perfect for all ambitious space cadets!
That’s right – our Brisbane laundromats at Taringa & Paddington never sleep – they are open every day of the year 24/7. This means that you can do your laundry whenever it suits you – day or even during the middle of the night!
And you won’t be bored – you can use our free WiFi to catch up on emails, browse the web, study, research, play games, stream your favourite music, or watch YouTube videos while waiting for your laundry.
Our laundromats offer undercover seating areas with our famous orange tables and stools, where you can comfortably sit and enjoy our facilities. Snap Laundromats are colourful, bright and welcoming, and have CCTV monitoring for our night-time customers. We ensure that both Laundromats are well lit at night.
Come and visit us morning, noon or night – we are Fast, Easy & Clean 24/7!

Snap Laundromats at Taringa & Paddington are family owned. Family is very important to us – that’s why we’ve worked hard to ensure that our laundromats are relevant & suitable for today’s modern families – small or large!
Our laundromat motto is FAST, EASY, CLEAN: we strive to provide a welcoming & clean laundry environment that is a first choice option for families that even have a home washing machine. Here’s a list of family friendly options that our laundromats offer:
Family size washing machines & dryers. We know that families can produce a lot of washing! Snap offers big, family-sized machines & dryers. Save your home domestic machine (and your sanity) and load up the Double or Triple Loads instead – they are fast (only 25 minutes), easy (free detergent is automatically provided) and clean (we maintain our machines & dryers everyday!)
Big choice and variety. Snap offers a variety of washing machines sizes to suit: small single top loaders to massive MEGA front loaders. If you need to do lots of smaller loads – try using multiple Double Loads for $6 each. If you have big items – like doonas or blankets – give the MAXI at Taringa or the MEGA at Paddington a go. MEGA can take up to 23 kilograms of washing!
Mild detergent for sensitive skin. My daughter suffers from sensitive skin allergies, so I am well aware of many family’s requirements for gentle, hypoallergenic detergents and cleaning products. At Snap, we installed an automatic dosing system which automatically injects high quality, mild detergent into the machines with every wash. You only need a small amount of high quality detergent to experience the perfect wash; and this provides a tolerable experience for those with sensitive skin!
Free Wifi to entertain all the family. Need to distract the kids while waiting for the laundry? Snap Laundromats offer free WiFi – horray! – so the kids can happily play online games or watch videos while waiting with you.
Pram friendly. Snap Laundromats are flat, at street level, offer wide doorways and easily accessible for prams.
Breastfeeding is Welcome Here. Snap Laundromats are approved members of the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA)’s Breastfeeding Welcome Here program. For mothers with babies or young children, we provide a smoke free, friendly & safe environment (with room to move a pram) to support breastfeeding.
Coffee is the Key. If you are like me, the only was to survive a hectic family schedule is with good coffee! Luckily, both our laundries are conveniently located next to some of the best coffee shops in Brisbane. Try Place of Stones at Taringa or one of the many cafe options at Paddington. I’m a huge fan of the quirky child-friendly cafe SassaFras up on Latrobe Terrace, in a great spot near Woolworths, for when I need groceries too. You won’t be disappointed!
As you can see, we have lots of options for busy families at Snap Laundromat. Pop down to one of our laundries at Taringa or Paddington, and give it a try! You’ll see how easy family laundry can be.
The historical Paddington Coin Laundromat at 284 Given Terrace, Paddington, has joined the Snap Laundromat revolution, and we have exciting plans for it’s transformation. It’s a great location in a thriving cosmopolitan area of Brisbane, and we can’t wait to get started on the upgrade. Here’s what’s coming soon:
More machines & dryers – Horray! We are expanding the existing capacity at Paddington, so there will be more (and a bigger variety) of machines to choose from: Mega Load, Triple Loads, Double Loads and single top loaders. More express dryers coming too!
Onsite change machine, so that you can easily and conveniently change notes for coins to use at the machines.
Free suds automatically dispensed in all the Dexter Laundry front loader machines. No need to bring your own detergent if you don’t want to!
NEW! We’ll be creating a Bring Your Own (BYO) section for BYO suds. If you prefer to use your own detergent, you will soon have the option to use our brand new Double front loader for BYO.
Free internet WiFi while you wait!
New furniture, signage, seating & wall colour coming soon! The fitout at Paddington will be consistent with Snap Laundromat, Taringa. We design & build all our furniture & signage ourselves. That means we’ll be installing our custom made (and famous!) orange tables & stools, we’ll be painting the walls our memorable green & retro orange, and installing our casual signage.
Renovations begin in May, including the arrival of the new machines and dryers. We’ll be closing the site from Thursday 1 May – Sunday 4 May. Sorry for any inconvenience during that time; you can always visit our Snap Laundromat @ 69 Westerham Street Taringa to see what’s coming soon to Paddington!
Our plans include giving the historical laundromat some love & attention so that it represents our laundry motto – Fast, Easy, Clean – and provides a welcoming & interesting laundry environment for everyone to utilise. We are a very ‘hands on’ team, so Just like at Taringa, we plan to be at Paddington everyday to ensure it is spotlessly clean, reliable & well maintained.

Free detergent. We have installed an automatic dosing system so that the correct amount of detergent is automatically injected into all the front loader washing machines. That means you don’t need to lug your detergent with you! It also means that you won’t accidentally over-suds your washing, resulting in a poor quality wash. Less detergent is also better for the environment.
Save Time. Our Dexter front loader washing machines take only 25 minutes to complete their cycle, and have a huge bowl capacity compared to domestic machines. You can wash double loads, triple loads or up to 20 kilograms in our super Maxi washer. You can also bring their entire week’s washing, and load multiple washing machines at the same time.
Environmentally friendly. The environmentally friendly qualities of our laundromat are extremely important to us. The Dexter front loaders use significantly less water and energy; the Dexter dryers have the reputation for delivering maximum energy efficiency. They also require far less detergent, which is better for the environment.
Breakfast, meals and coffee. Place of Stones restaurant, next door to our laundry, services delicious meals, pizzas, snacks and coffee to enjoy while you wait. This restaurant is extremely popular with students. Try their amazing breakfast pancakes!
See you at Snap.
