Paddington. Everyone who knows Brisbane knows Paddington. This suburb hosts a plethora of cafes, boutique shops, and restaurants. You can simply walk the strip and find something to tickle your fancy with every step. Paddington’s architecture is fancy, making use of little spaces, gems dotted over rolling hills juxtaposed with modern infrastructure. There’s plenty of greenery here, making this suburb look much further than just 5km away from CBD.
Shortcliffe & Sandgate. Imagine an English fishing village nestled on the seaside and you’ll be pretty spot on with that mental imagery of this suburb – a bustling seaside metropolis with plenty to see and do. The long flat stretch running alongside the water is perfect for early risers to watch the golden sun come up. Of course, it’s lovely at any time of the day and there will always be people going around. Love the sea and its salty air? You belong here.
Samford. The waypoint to the marvellous Mt. Glorious and Mt. Nebo, Samford is just half an hour north of Brisbane’s CBD. A single look around the picturesque Samford and you’ll find yourself traveling for hours into the countryside. This suburb is also situated near a few little secret waterfalls for you to discover. This little gem is the ultimate cross between country town vibes and vibrant city vibes.
New Farm and Teneriffe
These two neighbouring areas are a haven for people looking for a creative urban living. There are art galleries here. Don’t let the large mix of houses and apartments stop you – there’s definitely plenty of space to breath. There are restaurants and cafes adorning the sidewalks, and the Powerhouse stands tall as the centre of arts. The New Farm park is a perfect location for picnics and friendly BBQS.
West End. Here you can go barefoot to your heart’s content. To say the least, there’s no other suburb in Brisbane quite like West End. Laid back’s always the mood and neighbourly love is all around. If you crave the earthly feeling whilst still being near the city, then West End is for you. Here you’ll find multicultural cuisine, fantastic cafes, and local produce. And you heard right, fast foods are rare here.
With all of these magnificent suburbs, it’s not surprising why Brisbane house and land packages are in demand in the housing market right now. Of course, we are not in any way property experts, so try and research yourself what suburb would make a perfect home for you.
