why live in Auchenflower?


Auchenflower is a fantastic family suburb! Between Paddington and Toowong, it is central and easy to get around from. Some of Brisbane’s most lovely areas are in Auchenflower, with plenty of character homes and immaculately groomed gardens. It is also a fantastic place for people wanting to live by the river, with units taking advantage of the river and city views. Highly in demand due to Milton State School, Auchenflower is truly one of the Inner West’s best areas.

WHY WE LOVE Auchenflower

Right by the river is a beautiful, tree-lined suburb that stretches past the Toowong Cemetery and includes some of the most beautiful Queenslanders in Brisbane. One of the most interesting stories about Brisbane is the story of the mysterious, murderous, Mayne family and their Auchenflower home, "Moorlands," which happens to be located on the grounds of Queensland's largest private hospital, The Wesley.

Some of Brisbane's prettiest streets are located in hilly Auchenflower, featuring gorgeous character homes and immaculately groomed gardens. The riverfront is densely populated, with many high-rise unit blocks taking advantage of the river and city views. Auchenflower is very familiar with most demographics and property prices, and rental demand is always high.

There have been many quaint cafes and shops that have opened recently within Auchenflower and are worth a visit. Combined with the Milton state school catchment, Auchenflower has become a long desired part of Brisbane’s inner west!
