"Great place to live and so close to the city"

Living in Red Hill has provided me with a great lifestyle for the past 15 years. If you enjoy keeping fit (like me) then this is the place to live. Loads of great walks - The city and mountain views inspire you to keep walking :) However, there are plenty of local gyms if that is your preference.

Our kids went to the local schools and they are fabulous, especially Ithaca Creek State School, a real community buzz alongside terrific education for kids with all abilities.

You cannot go past this area without having a look, you will be surprised by how close you are to many terrific coffee shops and all that Paddington has to offer.

The Red Hill Cinema is an awesome place to watch a movie while having drink or 2, Gold Class at your doorstep. The new restaurant across the road from the cinema also looks great. I haven't tried this restaurant yet, but I get tempted as I walk past it most days and it always looks full. Botanica (next door to the restaurant) will keep you healthy, such great salads.

This area has so much to offer, I know I want to stay in the area for a long time to come.

"Tucked away 3 klms from Brisbane CBD"

Red Hill in Brisbane is more affordable than its closest neighbor Paddington but has all of the amenities from cafes to parks, green areas and local shops. It’s 5 minutes to the CBD and just off the inner city bypass with access to the airport (15 minutes), Sunshine Coast (just over an hour and Gold Coast (less than an hour). Inner city living with less hustle and bustle of the North and Eastern suburbs close to the CBD. It’s quiet but close and the is a real sense of community. We know our neighbors and the owners of the local cafes and shops. Great place to live. Great schools nearby for families both state and private.

"A hidden Gem"

We have lived here for 17 years and absolutely love it.
It's not only very close to the city but you really only have to go 10 minutes to the west and you're on a country drive out to mount Coot-tha ,mount Nebo or even head Northwest and you have a beautiful country drive up to Dayboro.
It's soooo handy if you just want to take advantage of all the cheap parking on the weekends in the city and go in there to walk around the river , go to Southbank or just do that city stuff.
sometimes I ride my bike literally from just down the road all the way into the city by following the bike paths on the creek.
Got a pinch myself some time to think what this is just 3 1/2 k's from the city??
I'm not sure if it's because of covid or not but it does seem like a lot more people congregate and get talking to their neighbours at the small coffee shops that have popped up throughout the neighbourhood.
I haven't tried that new cinema yet but everyone tells me it's pretty good, I have to admit I don't want to go because I'll fall asleep..
It's a very safe neighborhood, as a family we would have walked thousands of kilometres around here and none of us have ever felt unsafe in doing so.

"Known for hills but Red Hill has amazing natural spaces and parklands"

Many people think of Red Hill as a compact inner city location, with - unsurprisingly- lots of hills. The reality is, there is an amazing amount of flat green space with a quiet rural feel and lots of natural beauty... I have actually seen lungfish swimming in Enoggera Creek. Red Hill is really a diverse suburb.

"Great suburb with everything you need"

I loved living in Red Hill when I first moved to Brisbane in 2012 and I still love it now that I’ve bought my first home here.

"Nice but expensive"

Red Hill is quite a nice suburb and super close to the CBD. I lived there for two years. Its obviously very convenient with everything close-by. It has a cat cafe! You are close to the Normanby hotel, as well as all the restaurants at Paddington and Suncorp Stadium which is great if youre into the NRL. The major downfall for me is how expensive it is to buy or rent, better value elsewhere a few more ks out from the city. Street parking can also be an issue, and the houses are very close together. There were a lot of dogs near where I lived, and I was sometimes kept awake by the barking.

Great for

  • Very convenient
  • Close to suncorp stadium
  • Lots of restaurants

Not great for

  • Expensive
  • Noisy
  • Minimal on street parking for residents and visitors
  • Typical Red Hill cottages are built very close together - not good if you want some room between neighbouring properties

"From a Real Estate Agent's Perspective"

Working in the area for the past 10 years as a real estate agent for Harcourts City, I have been a "raving fan" of Red Hill for a very long time. The area itself offers a wonderful cosmopolitan lifestyle for the young yet still holds a reputation for being family friendly. Red Hill is made up of trendy boutique retailers and beautiful residential property which in turn, draws an ongoing demand to live in the area.

Great for

  • Within walking distance to Brisbane CBD
  • Gorgeous boutique retailers
  • The area offers a family friendly yet cosmopolitan lifestyle

Not great for

  • Very hilly!! Not good for the unfit.
  • Typical Red Hill cottages are built very close together - not good if you want some room between neighbouring properties
  • Minimal on street parking for residents and visitors
