Located only seven kilometres north of the city, Hamilton is renowned as one of Brisbane’s most prestigious suburbs. It’s an affluent postcode with a proud heritage. And with its coveted riverside location, Hamilton is often regarded as the home of ‘old money’ where powerful and wealthy people live in grand homes on Hamilton Hill.

In recent times, the suburb has been revitalised with a new wave of residents coming into the suburb. Many are choosing to settle in the riverfront apartments at Portside Wharf, one of Brisbane’s newer landmarks. It’s also home to a cruise ship terminal, retailers, restaurants, apartment blocks and a cinema.

Hamilton is conveniently located near the CBD, the airport, the lifestyle precinct of Racecourse Road and The Albion Marketplace. Residents enjoy the boutiques, bars and restaurants in neighbouring suburbs, Fortitude Valley and Bulimba.
