"The Perfect Place to Live"

We’ve recently moved to Hendra and honestly can’t believe how happy we are here.
The suburb itself is extremely picturesque and charming - old Queenslanders mingled with lovely new builds in tree-lined streets, with the clip clop and whinnying of horses making you feel like you’re much further than the city than you actually are (a mere 6kms away).
There’s plenty of cafes nearby for the caffeine addicts, fabulous childcare options and great gyms for the fitness freaks. Racecourse Village is a few minutes walk away for all your grocery shopping needs, complemented by some beauty options and cafes too. Meanwhile Racecourse Rd and Portside are a 5 minute drive for restaurants, bars and cinemas.
We live in a gorgeous house near the old stables and have horses walking down our street twice a day. Outside school hours kids are always in the street playing, whilst neighbours always say hello and often share a glass of wine at the end of a long week.
Coming from Sydney, we’re pinching ourselves at what we were able to afford in Hendra and are so glad we made the move up North. We never want to leave!

"Family and work friendly"

There is so much here for young families or professionals who want to feel like they're in the burbs but not far away from the city. Hendra has 3 large playgrounds within 5mins drive. We have gorgeous race horses walk by almost on a daily basis and the commute to work is within a 15-20min drive (peak hour) to the city. Where else can you get that in Brisbane? I've always felt safe here with a good community of people who actually know each other. Since we've moved here about a year ago they've slowly been knocking down or renovating old buildings so the streets have such a nice variety of architecture. For those wondering, Hendra is not in the main flight path so not noisy. I would only advise not to live on Nudgee road as it is quite busy as with any main road.

"Gentrification in Hendra"

Hendra used to be filled with post war houses, but these have been steadily knocked down over the past decade, and is now filled with high end new builds and large renovated properties. We have lived here for about 7 years and it’s a genuine neighbourhood with young families chatting comfortably with their older long term residents. I’m bewildered by the crime comments in this thread. As Hendra is zoned Res A, we have no apartments/ short term tenants. This is a pretty suburb with excellent public transport options, and a great neighbourhood vibe. Possibly the only negative is that while coffee shops are easy to find, you’ll need to go to Ascot/Hamilton or Nundah for restaurants.

"Great place."

Been living her for about 3 years and I can’t complain at all. We are a young family, it’s got great parks around and they are upgrading a lot of the big ones. It’s safe and quiet.
Also great selection of public transport options with both buses, trains.

"Pretty as a picture"

Hendra is a suburb in Brisbane, approx. 6 kilometres from the city. It is also very close to the airport and the Gateway Arterial (easy access to the Sunshine coast and Gold Coast). Hendra is renowned for its pretty Queenslander houses on large blocks, quiet roads and wide tree lined streets. In spring, jacarandas turn the streets purple. It is a popular suburb for families due to its proximity to some of the best private schools in Brisbane. Neighbouring suburbs of Ascot and Hamilton are popular for restaurants and activities (Eat Street Markets, Portside, Racecourse Road and weekend markets). Although, Hendra itself has popular coffee shops too). In the middle of Hendra, is one of the prettiest parks in Brisbane, TC Beirne Park, popular for children's birthday parties and weekend picnics. Healthworks Gym in Hendra is like a country club with a tennis court, swimming pool and sauna. DFO at the airport is only a few minutes away with a 24hr Woolworths, Hendra is a beautiful, safe, family oriented suburb. House prices are increasing, and not just because of a ripple effect from neighbouring, blue chip suburb of Ascot. Hendra is becoming very popular with many famous sports stars owning property in the suburb due to its location and beauty.

Great for

  • Close to airport and city
  • Beautiful parks
  • Great schools
  • Country feel in city area
  • Large Blocks of land
  • Old Queenslander houses waiting for some love

"A city suburb with country character where beautiful old Queenslanders sit alongside large new houses with character (you have to like horses"

Hendra is a quaint suburb where horses can be heard walking up and down the streets, (this is particularly true if you live in the Stable district side).
The architecture and general feel of the area is similar to its surrounding suburbs of Clayfield, Hamilton and Ascot, but with more houses becoming available to restore or demolish (only late 20th Century houses as most of Hendra is Demolition Controlled) as the old residents pass-away or move on due to the increased land value, this is also true with many of the large stables closing up and selling their vast lots of land.
Queenslanders dominate the area, particularly the interwar 'Ashgrovian' three Gable style, with a few earlier workers cottages also found, most new house are large luxury homes, with people choosing to build houses that compliment the older Timber homes rather than building concrete McMansions.
Great area for families with a general transition from blue collar racing industry workers to white collar taking place quite rapidly as is expected for a location only 7km from the city and walking distance to Racecourse Road. The only downside is lack of public transport with only one bus travelling through the suburb and another skimming the side of it alongside Clayfield.

Great for

  • Country feel in city area
  • Old Queenslander houses waiting for some love
  • Large Blocks of land

Not great for

  • Lack of Public transport options
  • Possums love to live in your roof

"Perfect in Everyway"

Fantastic location, very quiet, no planes, walking distance to a gorgeous cafe, fabulous schools. Only 10 to the airport and 3 min drive to the train station. This is an area that when people discover the hidden treasures of Hendra they won't go back...
