THIS DISTINCT QUEENSLAND SUBURB EXUDES A NOSTALGIC CHARM WITH BEAUTIFUL BORDERING PARKLANDS.
Defined by a sense of community, this distinct Queensland suburb exudes a nostalgic charm. It’s a place with large family homes, tree-lined streets and children are out pedalling their bikes – no wonder young professionals and families alike are moving to Alderley. Only minutes from Brisbane’s CBD, Suncorp Stadium and vibrant inner-city neighbourhoods, Alderley residents can be amongst the action if they choose. A sprinkling of apartment complexes has sprouted up in the area along with some contemporary abodes, but character-filled Queenslander homes are still the norm, and locals wouldn’t have it any other way. Sprawling parklands border Alderley. Banks Street Reserve offers 37 hectares of bushland and open green space, popular with cyclists, bushwalkers and sports enthusiasts.
Its much smaller counterpart, Grinstead Park, has an expansive fort- like children’s playground and sporting facilities. Brisbane City Indoor Sports Centre, Flipside Circus Training and Newmarket Olympic Pool provide the active even more choice. Locals source daily necessities from neighbouring suburbs as they await the highly anticipated Coles marketplace. When it comes to public transport, Alderley is spoiled for choice with a railway station, buses and bikeways that connect to over 40 kilometres of riding trails.
