Now one of Brisbane’s most sought after suburbs, Camp Hill gets its name quite literally from being a camp on a Hill for early settlers stopping over on their way to the coastline.
Today, Camp Hill is a highly populated suburb of families, retirees and young professionals who are drawn to the leafy, elevated suburb known for its incredible offering of amenities and close proximity to the city.
The area is dotted with wonderful cafes, numerous shopping precincts and large parks and is growing every day. The community spirit is celebrated frequently with volunteer-run events, contributing to one of the reasons why residents never want to leave once they call this place home.

The buzzing vibe, convenient location and choice of parklands.
In 1873, the White family purchased over 50 acres on high land that became known as White’s Hill, which is still the name of the locality within the suburb. This one of many parks which features sporting fields, a playground, BBQ facilities, picnic areas and bushwalking trails. Perth St Park and Lavarack Park are other local favorites.
Camp Hill is constantly growing and evolving, meaning locals always have something new to look forward to. Having recently undergone an impressive expansion, Samuel St Village, also known as Camp Hill Marketplace, caters to most needs, offering a multitude of dining options, beauty, retail, medical services, a vet, carwash, banks and more. The nearby Martha Street precinct is home to a delightful restaurant scene to suit any craving at any time of day. Large complexes like Westfield Carindale and Cannon Hill Shopping Centre are close by.
THE REAL ESTATE & PROPERTY
Is diverse and offers something for everyone.
Large, traditional Queenslanders are the favourite, standing proud throughout the suburb alongside colonials and post-war cottages. New Contemporary and Hamptons homes on smaller blocks are replacing older homes where allowed, bringing a new life to the suburb. Due to zoning restrictions, you’ll only find the odd townhouse complex or apartment block in Camp Hill that are low – medium rise. This is reflected by the fact that there’s total of 4,726 residential addresses, 84% of these being houses; very high compared to the Brisbane average. To top it all off, the suburb is very high and famed in part for its incredible City vistas, aptly named Camp Hill.
NEIGHBOURHOOD & LIFESTYLE
Is family oriented and always evolving.
The 10,000-odd residents are slightly younger than the national average for a residential suburb, at just 35. This is roughly divided equally between singles and families, around one-third being renters. Families are drawn to the suburb for the amenities, parklands and fantastic school options. People who grow up in Camp Hill, tend to find their way back.
The suburb is extremely well-serviced by public transport thanks to its position in between the city and major hubs like Carindale and Cannon Hill. Residents have no issues travelling to the city, Southbank or Suncorp stadium in as little as 10 minutes, with regular bus services and nearby trains. When it comes to transport, its close enough to the city that the commute isn’t long, but distanced enough that the streets are quiet, the houses are grand and there’s plenty of traditional character.

Whether you’re after a late Sunday brunch, fresh homemade salads or a quick afternoon pick-me-up, you can find it in Camp Hill.
