St Lucia, about five kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, is a prestigious south-western suburb that has benefited from its proximity to the city, the Brisbane River and local facilities.
With access to the City along Coronation Drive or via the ferry or bus network, St Lucia offers quiet suburban living with good infrastructure, dominated by the University of Queensland. St Lucia’s central location, access to the university and other facilities will undoubtedly continue to attract investors and tenants. With the University of Queensland only minutes away, easy access to Mt Coot-tha and other facilities like the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, St Lucia is popular with university students and those working in the city.
The CityCat ferry service, buses, and Green Bridge, also make St Lucia an ideal place to live. During semesters, buses run approximately every five minutes to the campus, and ferry services are also regular. The nearest train station is at Toowong, which can also be reached via the bus network.
Apart from the university, which provides student and employees with many facilities, the local residents also benefit from the university infrastructure. This includes excellent sporting facilities, cinemas, restaurants, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, libraries, and bookshops. The suburb also boasts its own commercial district that features supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and delicatessens.
