It’s a beautiful suburb with lovely parks, plenty of greenery, very little traffic, plenty of areas to walk around, and a steadily increasing number of good places to eat. Close to Paddington, Bardon allows you to enjoy the closeness of being an “inner city suburb” without being too close to your neighbours. It’s also one of the most lush areas in Brisbane that is still 20 minutes to the CBD. It’s an amazingly family friendly pocket of Brisbane!
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.
Famously leafy and highly regarded as one of Brisbane’s most family friendly suburbs, the primarily residential Bardon holds a variety of great parks, mountainous backdrop, no through traffic, gorgeous forest and walking tracks and, increasingly, excellent cafe options.
Close to Paddington for shopping/restaurants/bars and is surprisingly central for such a “fringes of the city” feel, Bardon is a large suburb, which means that the properties enjoy much more generously sized blocks.
With many post-war homes nestled between traditional Queenslanders, many have taken the opportunity to develop grand contemporary homes in this area, and as such, the property values of the suburb have soared in some pockets. Being very close to the national parks and Mt Coot-tha also gives families plenty of space to grow and play.
