Why We Love Windsor
Windsor could easily be one of Brisbane’s most beautiful suburbs. Here is a list of our top reasons why we love it so much:
- Windsor’s connectivity is what makes this Inner North suburb so great. The bus and train lines are exceptional and Lutwyche Road running through Windsor links residents to Brisbane’s northern and southern suburbs and the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. Windsor residents can be in the city, in eight minutes by train from Windsor train station. Albion train station is also nearby.
- The impressive array of parks and playing fields in Windsor is what makes this suburb so family friendly. There is no shortage of green space and recreational offerings in Windsor. Locals can enjoy the Windsor Sports and Community Park along Northey Street in Windsor, Downey Park – home to the Downey Park Netball Association and the Downey Park Netball Courts, Windsor Park, Windsor Bowls Club, Flynn Oval Park, and Eildon Hill Reserve to name but a few.
- Homezone in Windsor offers a range of shopping and eateries all in one convenient spot. Colwill Place, a heritage-listed 1920s shopping strip, is where you will find Bear Boy Espresso, a popular hang for locals. The Low Road Café and The Green Edge are also poplar with residents of Windsor. The Green Edge is a large vegan grocery store and café. An impressive line-up of more options can be found in neighbouring Wilston Village, Newmarket Village and Albion Marketplace.
- Windsor is home to the city’s only farm and Windsor also has its own fresh produce market – Northey Street Organic Farmers’ Market – which is open every Sunday morning at Northey Street City Farm. Locals can pick up organic, fresh, local fruit and veggies as well as a whole host of other produce including local meats, honey, and baked goods.
- The Enoggera Creek and the Enoggera Creek Bikeway both run through Windsor. Locals can cycle through the surrounding suburbs of Wilston and Newmarket and stop along the way at playgrounds and picnic spots.
- The airport is less than 15 minutes away and Wilston is handy to both the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast highways for weekends away.
