Sherwood

Suburb Profile

Overview

Sitting on the banks of the winding Brisbane River, Sherwood is a leafy green suburb just 11 kilometres south of the Brisbane CBD. Known for its impressive heritage-listed Arboretum and picturesque pockets of parkland, Sherwood is a family-friendly suburb with a strong community feel.

Located on the southern side of the Brisbane River, Sherwood is a popular suburb for established couples and families who relish in the charming wide streets, leafy outlooks and quaint heritage-listed sites including the Sherwood Arboretum and Berry and MacFarlane Monument. Location is another promising aspect of the central suburb. With Brisbane CBD just 11 kilometres away, popular Mt. Coot-Tha Lookout a few minutes north and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary just across the river, life in Sherwood is all about convenience.

With just over 5,000 residents living in Sherwood, the population might seem small, but the community spirit is thriving. On any given day, you’ll find children playing out in the streets, families barbecuing at the Arboretum, and young couples enjoying a coffee at one of the many cafes on bustling Sherwood Road or shopping for fresh produce at Brisbane MarketPlace Rocklea.

Venture just outside of Sherwood and you’ll find more amenities and attractions in neighbouring Graceville, Indooroopilly and Yeerongpilly including The Brisbane Golf Club, Queensland Tennis Centre, and Indooroopilly Island Conservation Park.
