As the area’s popularity grows, so does the coffee scene,
with more boutique cafés popping up as the area continues to flourish.

complex, a large-scale supermarket, and dining and retail stores alongside
luxury residential apartments.
With no shortage of parklands, reserves and sporting fields,
locals make the most of the multitude of green spaces. On the border of
neighbouring suburb Camp Hill you’ll find the generous White Hill Reserve, a
natural outdoor precinct featuring sports facilities and wide expanses of green

hilly Coorparoo has an eclectic mix of traditional Queenslanders, Post-War
homes, Spanish Mission architecture and modern contemporary developments, many
capitalising on city views. Apartments
