Defined by its edgy café scene and slightly offbeat character, Red Hill has a unique identity that keeps locals loyal to this small pocket of the west side. Within arm’s reach of alluring Paddington and with its own impressive heritage homes, this suburban gem holds its own as one of Brisbane’s most sought-after locations.
Red Hill may seem a bit quiet at first glance, however the trendy café scene and impressive displays of local street art draw a youthful crowd by day, creating a gritty yet charming character that is all embracing.
The area boasts a neighbourly atmosphere and relaxed community lifestyle that also draws on the success of its neighbouring suburbs and its ideal locality within Brisbane. When locals are looking to mix things up, they venture into neighbouring Paddington for its mouth-watering cafés, boutique stores, galleries and antiques.
Locals live on lush, tree-lined streets with easy access to an eclectic mix of galleries, retail outlets and places for unique activities such as the BMX Dirt Bike Track at Bridge Street Park and the Spec Ops Indoor Paintball.
When large property developments began in Brisbane’s inner suburbs, Red Hill’s heritage buildings remained safe due to the difficulty of building on its hilly terrain. As a result, the suburb is left with a generous number of traditional Queenslanders and post-war timber homes. Because of the elevation of Red Hill’s terrain, some properties towards neighbouring Paddington are lucky enough to have picturesque views over Brisbane’s CBD.
