It’s the place to be

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 1st December 2021

Think you know the Brisbane suburbs like the back of your hand? Think again, because we’ve rediscovered an inner-city utopia bursting with charisma. Red Hill is the nostalgic centre of Brisbane that continues to offer all you need for work, rest, and play. From popular cafes to luxe apartment living at Vue at Red Hill, here are six reasons why Red Hill should be your new go-to.

Rich in history

As one of the oldest suburbs in Brisbane, Red Hill is a goldmine for history buffs. It’s biggest claim to fame has got to be the Red Hill Skate Arena – a heritage-listed icon that was once the place to be for groovers and shakers all over the city. But did you know its previous iterations included a club for teens in 1964 and an open-air cinema way back in 1912? Nowadays, it’s gone back to its roots with the five-screen Red Hill Cinemas, while the roller-skaters cruise past the area’s abundant collection of quirky local street art brimming with character.

Boutique paradise

Strolling through this leafy ‘burb will reward you with a treasure trove of goodies for even the most eclectic tastes. Your bookshelf will be very happy when you visit the adorable Scrumptious Reads, while oenophiles around town have the Craft Wine Store amongst their go-tos. Bride-to-be? White Lily Couture has been trusted by thousands ready to say ‘I do’ with their team of caring stylists and breathtaking collection. You can also follow the tune to Simply For Strings – the very popular home of quality string instruments that musicians swear by.

Booming cafe culture

We all know the Brissy dining scene has gone through a major elevation as of late and Red Hill’s cafe culture is no exception. You’re always bound to start your day right with a visit to one of the many buzzing eateries, like the cosy Gramps Cafe, electric Black Rabbit Espresso, eternally fresh Little Red Providore, and renowned Red Hill Bakery. Plus, the OG place that actually made you like salads started in Red Hill – Botanica, baby!

Iconic local living

Red Hill’s inner-city location and quaint characteristics means property here is always in its prime. Take Vue at Red Hill – the area’s crowning development on Lower Clifton Terrace, that offers contemporary living in surrounds that has it all (did someone say views?). Owning an apartment here is a rare opportunity because who doesn’t want to live across two expansive floors with a generous lounge, well-designed kitchen, spacious bedrooms, and a breezy courtyard? The modern and bright space oozes cool, with a private rear balcony and front entertaining deck, where Brisbane’s city lights will serve as your disco ball. Plus, the stylish apartment offers a close proximity to recreational havens like Paddington’s dining scene, the popular Barracks development, Caxton Street, and Suncorp Stadium, as well QUT Kelvin Grove with its Creative Arts precinct and the Kelvin Grove Urban Village.

Charming night life

For fun after dark, Red Hill has got it going on! In fact, its iconic local draws from over 130 years of good times. The Normanby Hotel is no stranger to any Brisbanite, with a tipple for everyone and a newly refurbished beer garden perfect for relaxed evenings out. The Red Hill Cinemas is also a crowd favourite, showing the latest flicks alongside a healthy dose of suburban nostalgia.

For young, old, and everyone in between

The neighbourly atmosphere of Red Hill makes it the perfect place to lay down your roots, no matter where you are in life. Not only is the community lifestyle very compatible for little ones, but its proximity to Kelvin Grove offers a plethora of educational opportunities. Those looking to downsize will also enjoy being close to the hustle and bustle of the city, with all you need at your doorstep.
