Suburb Profiles

Woolloongabba

Woolloongabba is a thriving inner city suburb about four kilometres drive from Brisbane's CBD.

The suburb mainly consists of commercial, retail and restaurants, but is best known as being the home of the Gabba, or Brisbane Cricket Ground, which hosts national and international cricket matches and AFL games.

Despite the high level of commercial and retail development in the suburb, there are pockets of prime residential areas.

These consist of some heritage protected early period housing such as Queenslanders, and post-war workers' cottages made from weatherboard.

The median house price belies the potential growth of the area, especially given its proximity to the city, Southbank and other inner-city attractions.

The suburb is also very close to one of Brisbane's major hospitals, the Princess Alexandra, and is provided easy access north and south along the Southeast Freeway.

It has a dedicated stop on the South East Busway, which gives residents easy access to the City and other suburbs.

The closest train stations are at Dutton Park, Buranda and South Brisbane.
