At only 5 kilometres from the city centre, the leafy suburb of St Lucia is set on a curve of the Brisbane River which beckons with its impressive riverscape and relaxing greenery. To the north lies the up-market residential suburb of Toowong with its glittering Toowong Tower for shopping options and to the west, Indooroopilly where you’ll find the retail and cinema centre of Westfield Shopping Town.
St Lucia appeals to both the family, professional and student markets with its iconic University of Queensland and the primary school of Ironside State School with its 940 students. Secondary students in St Lucia attend the nearby school of Indooroopilly High which celebrates multicultural and socio-economic diversity in their school community or seek out the private Brisbane Boys’ College one of the most illustrious educational establishments in Brisbane.
As well as first-class educational opportunities, St Lucia residents enjoy the leafy parks of Perrin and Robertson Parks. Perrin Park boasts two bike paths one being a figure 8 with kiddies’ street signs and a larger one for adults. It also offers new equipment such as playground equipment for younger and older kids, barbecue facilities and has its own fully fenced, off-leash dog park.
The swift transport links to the city cannot be bettered from St Lucia as it lies a stone’s throw from the Toowong train station (giving commuters a 10-minute trip to the city on the Richlands line) as well as Guyatt Park Ferry Terminal (City Cat)which offers ferries to the city and beyond, and also to the university. Sandford Street is also served by the 402 and the 411 buses that offer a 20-minute journey to the city and a BCC cycle depot lies 20 metres from the complex’s entrance.
With regular transport links, exceptional educational facilities and retail opportunities galore, it’s no wonder a blend of young professionals and families are attracted by the cachet of the 4067 postcode.
