St Lucia

Suburb Profile


One of the most affluent and picturesque suburbs in Brisbane, St Lucia is bordered by the river on three sides. Along with its riverfront location and proximity to the CBD (six kilometres), the suburb is known for its University of Queensland campus and facilities.

Residents have plenty of dining, entertainment and shopping options on their doorstep. Fairfield Gardens and The Village cater to most shopping needs, while larger complexes like Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and Toowong Village are just minutes away. The Esplanade is a hub, and St Lucia Golf Links and Indooroopilly Golf Course attract locals and visitors alike. Parks and walking trails are dotted around the suburb, as are top-notch fitness centres and sporting facilities. Wesley Hospital is close by.

There are many great schools in the area, including Ironside State School, St Peter’s Lutheran College and Brisbane Boys’ College. St Lucia is well serviced by CityCat ferry and bus services, and trains in the neighbouring suburbs of Yeronga and Indooroopilly. The city is a 15-minute drive away.

St Lucia has a strong and diverse property market, with a mix of Queenslanders, townhouses, high-rise apartments, townhouses and large blocks – some of which are right on the river.
