Less than five kilometres from the city and with an enviable range of services and facilities, Toowong is a handy home for professionals, families and students. Close to the city, universities, hospitals and some of Brisbane’s best schools, Toowong is ultra-convenient for professionals, students and families alike. With easy access to the Brisbane River, if you love to ride or walk to work (or anywhere really), Toowong is for you. City Cats on the River, plus frequent buses and trains – Toowong is serviced by public transport like no other location in Brisbane. Hugely popular bikeways and walkways run both to the City along the river and towards the Western suburbs, perfect for fitness fans and family rides. Regatta Hotel and the Royal Exchange (RE) Hotel, are not just pubs – they are Brisbane landmarks in their own right, with histories almost as long and varied as Brisbane itself. The heritage-heavy western side of Toowong has family-friendly neighbourhood feel, which can be rare for a suburb so close to the city. Toowong has a built-up commercial precinct on its city edge, dominated by the Toowong Village Shopping Centre. These shops and offices quickly give way to apartment blocks with city and river views, loved by professionals and students. But the west of Toowong is quite a different story – renovated workers’ cottages and Queenslanders with huge verandahs define this heritage neighbourhood, set amongst gentle hills and quiet streets (Realestate.com.au) https://www.realestate.com.au/neighbourhoods/toowong-4066-qld).
