Toowong is the first choice for those who want to ditch the commute and spend more time doing their own thing.
Part built-up commercial and residential precinct, part hilly heritage haven – Toowong is a harmonious inner-city duet.
Less than five kilometres from the city and with an enviable range of Queenslanders and facilities, Toowong is a handy home for professionals, families and students. Close to the city, universities, hospitals and some of Brisbane’s best schools, Toowong is ultra-convenient for professionals, students and families alike. With easy access to the Brisbane River, if you love to ride or walk to work (or anywhere really), Toowong is for you.
City Cats on the River, plus frequent buses and trains – Toowong is serviced by public transport like no other location in Brisbane. Hugely popular bikeways and walkways run both to the City along the river and towards the Western suburbs, perfect for fitness fans and family rides.
The two main watering holes, the Regatta Hotel and the Royal Exchange (RE) Hotel, are not just pubs – they are Brisbane landmarks in their own right, with histories almost as long and varied as Brisbane itself. The heritage-heavy western side of Toowong has a family-friendly neighbourhood feel, which can be rare for a suburb so close to the city.
Toowong has a built-up commercial precinct on its city edge, dominated by the Toowong Village Shopping Centre. These shops and offices quickly give way to apartment blocks with city and river views, loved by professionals and students.
But the west of Toowong is quite a different story – renovated workers’ cottages and Queenslanders with huge verandahs define this heritage neighbourhood, set amongst gentle hills and quiet streets.
Handy to the City, with more facilities and variety in accommodation than you could possibly want, Toowong is a suburb that sings for the career, fitness and family-minded alike.
