On the cusp of Brisbane CBD, Toowong is as much about inner-city convenience as it is about being in the great outdoors. Situated between Brisbane River and Mount Coot-tha, and moments away from Brisbane CBD, professionals, families and students are drawn to Toowong because it offers the perfect work-life balance.
At the heart of the commercial precinct is Toowong Village which boasts a well-equipped shopping centre and office complex serviced by trains, buses and the Brisbane River City Cat. Close by the main commercial hub you’ll find the prestigious Brisbane Boys’ College and Toowong Park, a sprawling green space with impressive gum trees, football fields and a basketball stadium. The area also boasts two enduring pubs, the Regatta Hotel and the Royal Exchange Hotel.
You’ll find streets lined with waterfront apartments on one side and beautifully renovated Queenslanders and workmen’s cottages on the other. These neighbourly streets extend up towards the historic Toowong Cemetery, Anzac Park and Mount Coot-tha, all of which are popular with cyclists and walkers.
There are walking trails, road cycling and mountain biking trails around the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium, Mount Coot-tha and Anzac Park. Closer to the Brisbane River the Bicentennial Bikeway connects Toowong to Brisbane CBD.
Moments from the University of Queensland, Brisbane CBD and Wesley Hospital, Toowong is centrally positioned and really does have it all.
