With its tree-lined streets, historical shops and riverside location, Hawthorne combines old-world charm with modern appeal. Though the suburb has gone through a huge transformation over the last decade, it hasn’t lost its village, neighbourly feel.
The suburb is home to the classic Hawthorne Cinema, as well as alfresco cafes, boutiques and playgrounds. Its major park, Hawthorne Park, features an AFL field and also caters to kids, cyclists, runners and dog owners. Thanks to its spot on the Brisbane River, Hawthorne is popular with boat owners and those interested in an active, outdoorsy lifestyle.
Bulimba’s shopping and dining strip, Oxford Street, is a short walk away, while Cannon Hill Shopping Centre is the nearest major retailer. There are several medical centres and primary and high schools in the immediate area, and more a few kilometres out.
As for public transport, bus and Citicat ferry services leave from Hawthorne regularly, and Morningside train station is in the next suburb over. The CBD and Fortitude Valley are a 20-minute drive away, and residents are close to the Gateway Motorway and Southeast Motorway.
Properties for sale in Hawthorne include Queenslanders (many of which have been recently renovated), contemporary homes and riverfront apartments.
