Why St Lucia?

This prestigious Brisbane suburb offers a quiet and safe residence located on a peninsula and is approximately 6 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. The Brisbane River borders it on three sides: the East, North and South. This means you can access St Lucia from either of these three sides by ferry or through the Eleanor Schonell Bridge. Other means of transport to St Lucia are by bus, bicycle, and of course road. You’ll enjoy a very pleasurable walk, run or cycle to the Brisbane CBD as you exercise, although Uber rides cost just $10 — $15. The Toowong railway station is also close by.

It has several restaurants and a few shopping areas. Hawken drive hosts most of these restaurants, which are within walking distance. The variety of restaurants includes Persian, Italian and Thai where you can sample meals from other parts of the world. More shopping centres are only a 5-minute ride by bus or car in Indooroopilly Shopping Centre or Toowong Village.

Being home to the University of Queensland, St Lucia has many advantages including a variety of recreational facilities on campus.
