"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.
Pros
  • Very convenient
  • Close to suncorp stadium
  • Lots of restaurants
Cons
  • 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.
Pros
  • Within walking distance to Brisbane CBD
  • Gorgeous boutique retailers
  • The area offers a family friendly yet cosmopolitan lifestyle
Cons
  • 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
