Situated 10 kilometres from the city centre, the north-west Brisbane suburb of Mitchelton enjoys a reputation as one of Brisbane’s friendliest and most community-minded suburbs. It’s also a quickly growing suburb, with great shops, cafes, a farmer’s market, library and parks. Families are drawn here by its many quality schools and education facilities, as well as the range of housing stock. In fact, Mitchelton seems to have a family home to suit almost every lifestyle, taste and budget, including federation houses, post war cottages and modern family homes, as well as apartment blocks.
Transport: Residents of Mitchelton are spoiled for choice when it comes to transport options. The suburb is home to both Mitchelton and Oxford Park stations on the Ferny Hill line, which are nine and 10 stops respectively from Brisbane Central. It is also well served by buses.
The name: The suburb of Mitchelton takes its name from an estate in the area which was purchased in 1875 by one of the original European settlers, Nicholas Mitchell.
Landmarks: St Matthews Anglican Church at 35 Church Road, was designed by Charles Tiffin, a well-known architect who devised and supervised the construction of over 300 early Queensland buildings, including Old Government House.
