PROXIMITY TO PADDINGTON
Although Red Hill has much to offer in its own right, the suburb smoothly blends into neighbouring Paddington, which creates an even wider spread of mouth-watering cafés, unique boutique stores, galleries and antique shops.
Enoggera Terrace boasts some of Red Hill’s most popular cafés. This quaint stretch of shopfronts looks onto an integral part of Red Hill history, the now abandoned Skate Arena, which is covered with local street art.
When large property developments began in Brisbane’s inner suburbs, Red Hill’s heritage buildings remained safe due to the difficulty of building on its hilly terrain. As a result, the suburb is left with a generous number of traditional Queenslanders and post-war timber homes. Because of the elevation of Red Hill’s terrain, some properties towards neighbouring Paddington are lucky enough to have picturesque views over Brisbane’s CBD.
