Ascot

Suburb Profile

Overview

Marked by flowering Poinciana trees and Queenslander homes, Ascot is a sprawling suburb just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. With a strong racing culture, the Eagle Farm Racecourse has just undergone a multi-million dollar renovation to attract visitors from all over.

The renowned Racecourse Road serves as the suburb’s commercial hub, and is home to casual and fine dining restaurants as well as a bustling shopping strip.

Locally, Ascot is known for its wide, tree-lined streets and charming character homes, many of which are heritage-listed. Windermere, the home of the suburb’s founder, James Sutherland, is still standing.

On the Brisbane River side, the Portside Wharf boasts modern apartments, gourmet restaurants, a cinema, weekend farmers and clothing markets, and chic boutiques. It is a mini metropolis of its own, attracting many young professionals and families living in the area.

Ascot offers four schools, covering primary and high school education: Ascot State School, St Agatha’s Primary School, St Rita’s College and St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School.

The area is easily accessible thanks to well-maintained roads and regular train, bus and taxi services. It also offers quick access to freeways to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, meaning drivers can avoid going through the city.

The definition of inner-city living, Ascot is a good base for those commuting to Brisbane for work. It’s also the perfect environment to raise a family, with lots of facilities, public transport options and green space available to the public.
