Alderley has a lot of long-term residents who maintain that sense of community which is lacking in so many other areas. Whilst there are plenty of senior citizens, there are also heaps of young families, young professionals and the like. You only have to go walking in the morning to see the diversity of friendly locals. It is hard to believe Alderley is as quiet as any outer suburb, but it is only 6km from the CBD. With the redevelopment of the Alderley shops happening soon, it will make the area even better.
Know for its picturesque hills and beautiful cottages, Paddington is the vein of the Inner West, running outwards from the City and adjoining Red Hill to the North, Bardon to the West and Auchenflower to the South. As you travel down Caxton Street, past Suncorp Stadium, onto Given and Latrobe Terraces, you will see why Paddington is such a desirable place to live in Brisbane.
Alderley is one of those suburbs that has always had its charm, and being so close to the CBD, it is perfect for young professionals who are looking for a relaxed lifestyle!
Why do people love Alderley? It’s a great suburb, close to the CBD, with regular bus options and a direct train line. They love all the little shops in the area, and the local Alderley Arms puts on a great meal! Plus, you can leave the car at home and explore the incredible bike network and park life Alderley has to offer.
There are plenty of parks and playgrounds, including the massive Grinstead Park, which has a huge playground for kids, Sedgley Park and Banks St Reserve, to name just a few. With a natural corridor to the City, this really is a perfect place to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle.
