Chelmer Real Estate

By Krista Sharp

One of Brisbane’s most charming riverside suburbs, Chelmer boasts an idyllic leafy atmosphere and Brisbane’s so-called best street: Laurel Avenue. 

Famous for its restored and often historic Queenslanders, Chelmer also has many examples of restored and renovated post-war workers cottages.

 As its name implies, Laurel Avenue (and many other streets in Chelmer) is home to magnificent camphor laurel trees.

Chelmer occupies an enviable position on the Brisbane River south of Indooroopilly and is only about 8km from the CBD.  

Among its local amenities is a railway station, as well as bus routes with frequent services to nearby Indooroopilly Shoppingtown.

  The commercial element in Chelmer is restricted to a corner store and a hair salon. 

Chelmer is predominantly a quiet residential suburb relying on its neighbours, Graceville and Indooroopilly, for its shopping and entertainment facilities. 

There is also a high school, small TAFE campus and two nursing homes.

  Chelmer has a high proportion of parkland and sports fields — some reaches of the river are dedicated parks for public convenience. 

The Sherwood AFL Club is located in Chelmer; the suburb also has a bowls club and a croquet club.
