East Brisbane

East Brisbane is closely located to the CBD, only about 2.5 km south-east. It is one of the inner suburbs consisting mostly of residential properties, although it has portions of commercial establishments.

If you are looking for a new place to purchase or rent, the Queenslander homes in this area are perfect for tenants and property investors wanting a luxury house or prestigious rental property. Aside from the beautiful and spacious dwellings, the suburb is also abundant on heritage-listed sites.

Leisure and Shopping

Residents of East Brisbane will enjoy its close proximity to the central business district, making it a great option for those often travelling to and from the CBD. Although it does not have a major shopping area, many of its streets are lined with local restaurants, coffee shops and specialty stores. There are even several thrift shops for bargain hunters.

From the suburb, you will be treated to views of the central business district and the Norman Creek. The Mowbray Park is the best spot for BBQs, children’s parties, exercising and for just enjoying a peaceful view. Pet lovers can take their dogs to Real Park, an off leash park along Clarendon Street that also offers a playground for children.

If you enjoy sports – football or Frisbee – then you can pay a visit at the Heath Park. Whether you are one of the players or a watcher, the Heath Park will be your perfect place for some physical activity.

East Brisbane is also surrounded with numerous heritage-listed sites, which makes living in this smaller neighbourhood even more interesting. Some of these include the Mowbray Park and East Brisbane War Memorial, Hester Villa and the Classic Cinema (Triumph Cinema).
