Red Hill is a suburb on the City fringe and everyone who lives in the area can easily take advantage of its central location. It’s still a fantastic mix of family friendly properties as well as offering easy accommodation for students, first home owners and the like. With its ridges and hilly reputation, Red Hill can be challenging to get around, but it is still close to transport options. Shops include trendy stores and small businesses, but with the City at your fingertips, you can happy find shops to suit your taste.
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.
One of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs, Red Hill has one of the Inner West’s most iconic vistas. The Normanby Hotel with its fig trees, St Brigid’s church, and the high ridges are classically identified with this suburb, and Musgrave Road, which runs through the suburb, gives all its residents easy access to the many shops and Brisbane’s CBD.
Nestled between Paddington and Kelvin Grove, the Red Hill Ridge affords the area beautifully elevated views and gives the region its great outlook over the tinned roofs. A mix of traditional Queenslander and unusual contemporary properties, Red Hill lends itself to families looking to be Inner City without being too near major thoroughfares.
Shops are within easy reach, with lovely cafes and restaurants scattered throughout. Being close to the CBD, the Red Hill area is also mere minutes drive to the Inner City schools and Paddington’s shops.
