GRANGE At A Glance
With its abundance of multi-use green space, peaceful, neighbourly streets and traditional weatherboard homes, Grange is an example of how pleasant suburban living can be. Known for its family-friendly atmosphere and community-centric lifestyle, if it isn’t already, this small yet sweet haven should be on every families radar.

Paddock Espresso is a daily ritual for locals, serving up freshly brewed coffee and classic café fare.
The local community was shocked by a gas explosion on Days Road in the early 1970s.

Bounded by lush green parklands and Kedron Brook Creek, Grange is more than generous when it comes to places for family activities. Locals enjoy over 19 hectares of public green space with playgrounds, picnic areas, dog parks and a walking and bicycle trail that follows the creek.
A few well-regarded cafés are scattered along Days Road and in nearby backstreets, but locals generally head to neighbouring Wilston for a livelier food and coffee culture.
Although Grange may be a quiet pocket of suburban living, it is very close to some of Brisbane’s most popular precincts north of the river. Brisbane City and Fortitude Valley are easily accessible via regular public transport, and key arterial roads and tunnels connect Grange commuters to all areas of Brisbane.
Most who call Grange home seek a safe and quiet lifestyle – the suburb appeals to young and established couples and families. Older couples and independents are also attracted to the area because of its peaceful nature and close proximity to the medical facilities in nearby Herston.
