Wilston

Suburb Profile

Overview

Just four kilometres from the CBD, Wilston still has its 1920s character and charm, but with all the modern amenities. Professionals and working families with kids are drawn to the area for its inner city location and friendly, village atmosphere.

The recent revamp of Kedron Brook Road has made the suburb livelier than ever, with al-fresco dining spots popping up. Wilston Village is the main retail strip, while bigger shopping centres are in neighbouring areas like Windsor, Stafford and Brookside.

Wilston promotes an active lifestyle, thanks to green spaces like Wilston Place Park and Flynn Oval Park, and walkways running along Enoggera Creek. It is also home to the Wilston Grange Australian Football Club, St Andrews Ladies Hockey Club and Grange Bowls Club.

There are two schools in the direct area, Wilston State School and St Columba’s Primary, and dozens more in the surrounding suburbs. The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital is close by, as are sporting grounds like Ballymore Stadium and Downey Park.

Residents have a few public transport options. Wilston railway station offers services to Brisbane and its surrounds, and there are regular buses to the city. The CBD is a 20-minute drive away.

As for properties, part of Wilston’s appeal is its mix of old and new styles of architecture. There are Queenslanders and charming homes peppered throughout the suburb, and contemporary houses with sweeping views on Wilston Hill.
