Toowong – Inner-west Brisbane
Toowong is an incredibly accessible suburb, connected to the CBD and education institutions via nearly all forms of transport. Students can reach the University of Queensland via a 15-minute bus ride from Toowong, feel the wind in their hair as they cruise to St Lucia via the CityCat, or snake along the river on foot or bicycle along the bikeway.
Toowong Village provides all the essentials, including supermarkets, Kmart, a gym, medical facilities, cafes and restaurants. The train station will take you to Central station in five minutes, the bus runs along the river and takes about ten minutes to the city or fifteen to South Bank, or the CityCat will pick you up at the Regatta and bring you to Eat Street Northshore.

In Toowong you have everything you need...
I am Hazel from Nairobi, Kenya and I have been living in Toowong for 3 months. I chose to live here because you have everything you need a short walk or bus ride away. Especially for someone who does not have a car, I can easily get to most places in Inner Brisbane. It blends together the city feel as all the students and different accommodation types bring life to the area but also has the quiet green suburban feel which adds to Toowong’s charm.
