Red Hill: Home to Brisbane’s Young Professionals

  • Want to live a stone’s throw away from the action?
  • A hop, skip and jump from the CBD?
  • In one of Brisbane’s most well connected communities?

We present, Red Hill.
Neatly sandwiched between stylish Paddington, swanky Kelvin Grove and charming Ashgrove, there are plenty of things to do in and around Red Hill.

Even though you’ll find mostly young professionals residing here, Red Hill still holds a reputation for being very family friendly.

With an edgy café scene and rolling streets providing unbeatable views, it’s easy to see why there is an ever-growing demand to live in this area.

Plus, a wide selection of local hot spots provide residents with lots of entertainment in shopping and dining.

What’s more?

This suburb is the proud home to the most successful club in the National Rugby League; the Brisbane Broncos. Their training ground is located at Gilbert Park along with the Leagues Club.

We are proud to serve Red Hill and here we break down why.

Cosmopolitan living

Red Hill is a predominantly residential area set in hilly terrain offering a wonderfully convenient lifestyle for its young dwellers, who mainly fall into the 20-35 age group.

Households in Red Hill are primarily occupied by childless couples working in a professional occupation. Young families are the second largest demographic in the area, taking advantage of all this inner-city suburb has to offer. 

All who live here benefit from its close proximity to the CBD and quick access to the popular surrounding suburbs, such as Paddington.

With a choice of beautiful traditional architecture and modern apartments, Red Hill offers dynamic style for its residents.

Worthwhile investment

Price trends in Red Hill continue to remain consistent, making it a clever spot for investment.

On average, a 3-bed home will cost $850,000 to buy, or $575 a week to rent. Houses don’t stay on the market long. In fact, a quarter less time than the national average.

Red Hill will only continue to hold its own as one of Brisbane’s most sought after suburbs.


Waterworks Road and Musgrave Road connect here and provide the main thoroughfare.

Council buses 379, 380 & 381 run along here. The 378 is accessible from Arthur Terrace, and the 377 on Kennedy Terrace. Between the service you can reach any area across the city.

Easy school access

Red Hill is serviced by a number of schools in the surrounding suburbs and families can gain easy access to all.  

  • The Petrie Terrace State School is a small primary school situated in neighbouring Paddington and has been educating locals since 1868. They thrive on the empowerment of community spirit and engagement whilst encouraging their students to aim towards academic excellence
  • Kelvin Grove State College has three sub-schools; Junior, Middle and Senior. With a broad curriculum base and programs delivered in a supportive and positive manner, students from year 5 to 12 are sure to be nurtured to achieve their best whilst studying here
  • Ithaca Creek State School is an independent public school in Bardon and one of the oldest in Queensland. With a long history of providing quality education, and an ethos ‘strive to improve’, it is a well renowned establishment for children up to year 6.

Local hotspots

Perhaps one of the most tempting aspects of living in Red Hill is that the area offers so many ways to spend leisure time.

Waterworks Road and Musgrave Road are both buzzing with many options for food, shopping and entertainment.

  • Coffee & Food

We can’t talk about Red hill without acknowledging its thriving café scene.

At the top of the list is Steamtrain Espresso bar. The specialty coffee on offer here makes it an obvious local treasure. Highly recommended for its friendly staff, reasonably priced delicious menu and for being both child and dog friendly, this place is sure to have something for everyone.

Another front runner for locals is the Little Red Providore café. This place dishes up cosy café vibes in abundance, set within a lovingly restored heritage building. With fresh bread, pastries and cakes delicately displayed behind the counter, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Then, at the bottom of Arthur Terrace, you’ll find Scrumptious Reads. This café come book shop is tucked inside a sweet white cottage and offers everything from foodie events to culinary workshops and book launches.

For incredibly delicious and nutritious food on the run, Botanica Real Food is where it’s at. The owners are a husband and wife duo, who also both happen to be trained chefs, serving award winning boutique style salads and a vast range of gluten free cakes. You just have to visit this place.

For an evening meal that’s guaranteed to please, head to Musgrave Road. Here you’ll find the popular Colle Rosso Ristorante Italian. This place cooks up some delicious pizzas and pasta with a modern twist and prides itself on satisfying local taste buds.

·         Nature fix

Woolcock park serves the locals with their nature fix. This pretty outdoor space has public BBQ’s and winding bike paths, providing residents with an inner-city retreat to enjoy all year around. An annual fair is held in the park with lots of entertainment for visitors. The fair boasts a wine bar for the adults, rides for the kids and local artisan markets selling tempting and unique treats for all.

From here, cyclists can set off on a 7 km return trail. Just by crossing the little wooden bridge you’ll take a ride through wooded glades, passing by Ithaca creek on route before finally reaching Banks Street Reserve in Newstead. Once you’re there, you will find more walking and bike tracks that are well worth exploring.
