One of Brisbane’s oldest and most in-demand suburbs, Clayfield is home to families and professionals. It’s conveniently located halfway between the CBD and airport, and is close to excellent schools and amenities as well as the wharf.
It’s an ideal place to raise kids, with plenty of parks, sporting facilities and schools around, such as Clayfield College, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School and Ascot State School. There are a few shopping complexes to cater to residents’ needs, including Eagle Junction Shopping Centre and Ascot Plaza. The fashionable Racecourse Road and Portside Wharf are just a stone’s throw away, and also offer a slew of dining and entertainment spots. Clayfield has top-notch medical services, and Brisbane Royal Hospital is nearby.
Clayfield is easily accessible by public transport. Several bus routes run through the area, and trains depart regularly from Clayfield Railway Station and Eagle Junction Railway Station. For those who commute by car, the CBD is a 5-10 minute drive.
The suburb’s wide, leafy streets are dotted with a range of housing options. Along with Queenslanders, potential buyers can look at larger homes (many with pools and big backyards) as well as older and more contemporary apartments. Thanks to Clayfield’s prime location, properties tend to be snapped up fairly quickly.
