Toowong is located about four kilometres from the CBD and is less than five minutes’ drive from the University of Queensland at St Lucia.
Toowong has a vibrant and thriving commercial and shopping precinct, and also offers lively night life options, thanks to the ready supply of university students in the area who frequent The Regatta on Coronation Drive and the Royal Exchange Hotel.
Toowong has been called the North Sydney of Brisbane because it combines commercial and professional space with top quality residential areas, close to the Brisbane CBD. It has easy access to Brisbane’s CBD and boutique shopping areas, such as Park Road in the neighbouring suburb of Milton.
Major works have improved the flow of traffic along Coronation Drive, and added to the amenity of the river by better catering for pedestrians and cyclists along the river edge.
The suburb features an ever-increasing number of units to cater for the strong demand in the area from young professionals and university students. High-rise complexes have been completed along Coronation Drive, with a number of new high-end projects also taking advantage of the city and river views on offer. Toowong is well serviced by public transport, via City Cat, bus or rail.
