Why Hawthorne?

If you love a green leafy environment with a community feel, then Hawthorne is the ideal place for you. It’s perfectly nestled against the Brisbane River and is located about 6km South East of the CBD. It neighbours Bulimba, Teneriffe, Balmoral and New Farm, which are all wonderful inner-city areas. The transport system is well laid out with various options for public use: bus, ferry, taxi and train. You can use your bike to Brisbane to arrive in only half an hour.

Hawthorne is close to many amenities, such as the Hawthorne cinemas, charming cafes, hairdressers, restaurants, gyms and boutiques. In case you need more than these, you can always walk down the road to Bulimba for the likes of delis and supermarkets.

Your kids have plenty of favorable activities to participate in since there are toddler swim schools and numerous lush parks. These include Hawthorne Park, Hardcastle Park, Vic Lucas Park and Love Street Park. There are also community sporting clubs and family-friendly parklands.
