Favoured by the well-heeled, Ascot is a family-friendly haven of leafy streets and quiet parklands. Renowned for its illustrious Queenslander homes which are surrounded by stands of jacaranda and poinciana trees, Ascot is also a big name on the national horse racing circuit.
Pretty as a picture, Ascot is a neighbourhood characterised by its grand Queenslander homes rather than its entertainment options. With greenery in abundance and parks aplenty, this charming district has attracted established families eager to own one of the heritage homes that decorate its streets.
Quiet Ascot is not without its lively movements. Doomben and Eagle Farm, two of Brisbane’s most notable racecourses can be found within its borders. Ascot has long been associated with the Queensland horse racing industry – the suburb had one of the earliest rail services in the state to enable punters easy access to the tracks. Nowadays, the races prove no less appealing – racing season sees large numbers of visitors to the district.
Even when racing season is over, the course remains the district’s heart. Instead of accommodating the betting brigade the open space hosts weekly markets – a mecca of fresh produce, food stalls and bits and bobs.
A further attraction for foodies is nearby Racecourse Road, which stretches between Eagle Farm and the Brisbane River. This stretch hosts a plethora of eateries, grocers and bars to entertain locals and visitors.
For fans of traditional Queensland architecture, Ascot is a must-see. There are heritage homes that have been painstakingly restored to pristine condition – or modernised just a touch. These homes feature sweeping decks and sit on generous blocks of land. For a glimpse of the best you need look no further than Lancaster and Alexandra Roads and Yabba Street.
That’s not to say that Ascot is without a modern touch. There are impressive new homes aplenty, with Windermere Street and Kitchener Road offering a stretch of eye-catching (and jaw-dropping) homes.
