Bardon

Suburb Profile

Overview

Nestled in the foothills of picturesque Mount Coot-tha, Bardon is a tranquil and leafy suburb that attracts young families looking for proximity and easy access to the CBD as well as a bushland environment to raise a family.

Situated six kilometres west of the Brisbane CBD between Ashgrove, Paddington, and Auchenflower, Bardon was originally called Upper Paddington until 1925 when it was renamed after Bardon House, a stone residence built by the early mayor of Brisbane, Joshua Jeays. Bardon House remains today and is one of several heritage-listed sites that add to the beauty of Bardon.

Bardon is predominantly a residential suburb with countless old-style Queenslander dwellings. Development in recent years has seen many modern and lavish properties added to Bardon’s landscape, which has brought a feeling of grandeur to the area. Proximity to the Brisbane CBD is one of Bardon’s most promising characteristics, ensuring residents are never far away from everyday conveniences. For daily amenities close to home, there are specialty stores and restaurants in and around Macgregor Terrace.

Sport is the order of the day in Bardon with several sporting facilities catering to players and enthusiasts including Purtell Park, home of the Wests Panthers Rugby League Club, and Wests Juniors Leagues Club. Bardon is also home to Bowman Park, one of the oldest football clubs in Brisbane.

Bardon offers the best of both worlds; while only a short drive to the expediencies of the Brisbane CBD, savouring the serene surroundings and idyllic Mount Coot-tha backdrop is just part of the perfect Bardon lifestyle.
