The picturesque suburb of Yeronga lies around 6 kilometres south of Brisbane and has enjoyed a surge in interest in the last six months, as people recognize it as a suburb with plenty of its own amenities while being so close to the cultural institutions and festivals of South Bank as well as the bars and markets at West End.
Yeronga is known for the parklands along Brisbane Corso and its vast cycleways meandering from the Eleanor Schonell Bridge past the Tennis Centre and on in to Graceville. Local supermarkets include Coles at Fairfield Gardens and a new Woolworths being built in Annerley, not far from the op shops and medical centres.
Yeronga Village itself offers two dentists, two bakeries, a butcher, a bottle shop, optometrist, IGA supermarket, gift shop, fruit and veg shop, RSL Club and numerous places to eat. And let’s not forget the nearby Bunnings plus Rocklea markets for produce, flowers and assorted new and second-hand items. To the north of Yeronga are the cricket grounds, parklands and off-leash dog parks. To the east is the local swimming pool, croquet club, Bowls and Rugby Clubs. In the south is the new Ken Fletcher park which has a jetty from which to launch your kayak PLUS the Queensland Tennis Centre which offers world-class entertainment and courts for hire. And of course, to the West is the river, always a pleasure to view whether you are rowing on it or watching a magical sunset from the bank.
Yeronga is also well provided with all levels of educational facilities, having Yeronga Kindergarten, St Sebastian’s Catholic Primary, Yeronga State School and High School as well as Southside Metropolitan TAFE.
A delightful property, Unit 2 was not flood affected and has a motivated vendor, so be sure to inspect this weekend.
