Hamilton & Ascot


Hamilton is about 5km from Brisbane's CBD. Leafy streets and upmarket riverside suburb with European style plazas. Hamilton is fast developing as a major apartment area and eventually there will even be a beach and numerous other facilities.

The riverside and prestigious suburb of Hamilton is in easy reach of the CBD, Gateway Bridge and the airport. It is surrounded by landmarks of Brisbane's past and present including the famous Breakfast Creek Hotel and the international cruise terminal Portside complete with cinema.

Hamilton has a mix of old and new architecture and one of the busiest connecting roads in Brisbane, Kingsford Smith Drive, named after our famous aviator and the man on the old paper $20 note, Sir Charles Edward Kingsford Smith who was born in this very suburb in 1897.

There are plenty of great dining options in and around Hamilton. Visit the nearby Ascot dining strip at Racecourse Road or dine by the river at Portside.

For shopping try Racecourse Road and you'll find many trendy boutiques and cafes, and if you’re after a larger shopping centre, Toombul Shopping Centre isn't far away.
