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.

One of the smallest areas of the Inner West, Petrie Terrace abuts the CBD but enjoys some of the best views in Brisbane.
