Sherwood 4075

Why Sherwood?

Sherwood is among the oldest Brisbane suburbs that’s only about 10 km from the CBD. It’s a leafy, discreet and alluring area with the Brisbane River bordering it on its western side. The name is derived from that of an original property around the place, which was so-named after England’s Sherwood Forest.

There’s ample bus and rail transport as well as its own Sherwood train station linking Brisbane to other inner-city areas like Springfield Central and Ipswich. The bus services, based along Oxley Road, offer the often much-needed yet convenient transport to the CBD.

Sherwood boasts several heritage-listed sites, such as the Berry and MacFarlane Monument on Sherwood Road. The most popular heritage site is the Sherwood Arboretum on Turner Street; the location of a huge botanical garden covering 15 hectares of green space.

The arboretum is perfect for family outings as it is just nearby and has no entry fee. There are numerous activities to engage in as it has a great collection of trees, a park and a children’s playground, which is ideal for kids to play and run around. Fitness activities, bird trails, guided walks, photo sessions and jogs are sure to keep you busy in these expansive grounds.

Sherwood’s proximity to the river provides a serene, natural atmosphere to spend your weekend with your loved ones. The main streets have a cinema, shops and cafes that are a walking distance of the residences.
