City of Brisbane
Herston is an inner-city suburb of Brisbane on the same ridge as the more well-known Kelvin Grove and Red Hill. Home to the famous Ballymore rugby stadium and overlooking Victoria Park Golf Club, the Royal Brisbane Hospital and the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Herston not only offers many aspects but also the convenience of its location without the overcrowdedness of other inner-city suburbs. Historically Herston was a farming area that was slowly subdivided into large allotments that became home to some of the wealthy business owners of the city. Many of the old Queenslander styled houses have been restored and extended, sitting comfortably beside more modern developments. Within walking distance of QUT Kelvin Grove and Urban Village, the Royal Brisbane Hospitals, Ballymore and the Victoria Park Golf Club Herston has proximity and a very diverse range of inhabitants. If you're looking for a place close to the hustle and bustle of the city but without the noise and congestion of other inner-city suburbs then Herston is the place for you.
