St Lucia: The Best of Everything
St Lucia is a riverside residential retreat where you will find a mix of apartments, townhouses and elegant Queenslander and Federation houses along the streets, lined with Jacaranda trees. St Lucia is also an advantageous location for families and students. This is because aside from being bordered by the Brisbane River, it is also surrounded by the University of Queensland’s magnificent grounds and buildings.
Not only is it an attractive location to students and academics alike due to its close proximity to the university, it is also considered as a strategic residential location because it is comfortably close to the CBD where you can find local cafes, flavourful takeaways and nearby convenience stores hidden behind rows of small shopping strips.
Almost everything you need can actually be found within the suburb, but if going out of St Lucia is necessary, you would be pleased to find that the public transport here is a sure winner. You can catch a bus to the city, walk to Toowong Village, ride a bike to Indooroopilly, walk your way to Dutton Park over the Green Bridge or catch the City Cat along the beautiful river.
The suburb itself is very sought after and is one of the best when it comes to convenience for families, professionals, and especially students. It turns out that the lifestyle benefits in St. Lucia are more than just academic.
