While Kelvin Grove is best known for being home to the Queensland University of Technology Kelvin Grove campus, the neighborhood has grown into a busy hub of restaurants, cafes, shops, markets, arts and activity as students have begun to populate the area.
Kelvin Grove is a multicultural neighborhood, where the lifestyle is social and laid-back. Central to the suburb is Kelvin Grove Village, also known as ‘the Creative Heart of Brisbane’. Here residents and visitors have access to not only the essentials, but also the weekly Kelvin Grove Village Markets, community activities, student bars, La Boite Theatre Company and Wicked Wednesdays Putt Putt at Victoria Park.
The creative heart of Brisbane, the rolling hills of Kelvin Grove surround the QUT campus, where an Urban Village of shops, eateries and even a Farmer’s Market are the meeting place for local students.

It’s a quiet and multicultural neighborhood
I’ve lived here for a year. I love it because it’s a quiet and multicultural neighborhood. I love going to plays at La Boite Theatre Company, playing paintball at Spec Ops or catching a movie at Reading Cinemas. On the weekend, I usually play soccer at the QUT Kelvin Grove campus and grab food at the Village Markets.
