There’s no denying that Brisbane is going through a transformative period right now. Like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, recent developments across Brisbane have transformed the River City into a world-class city that no longer hides in the shadow of its southern counterparts (we’re looking at you, Sydney and Melbourne).
One such development that is bringing new energy to Brisbane is the revitalisation happening in the inner-northern suburb of Hamilton, spearheaded by Frasers Property Australia’s Hamilton Reach master-planned community. Known across Brisbane for its enviable balance of dining, shopping, and lifestyle, Hamilton has emerged as one of Brisbane’s most desirable suburbs for couples, families and retirees alike. Toeing the boundary between inner-city and suburban, Hamilton-residents are lucky enough to experience the best of both lifestyles!
Here’s 6 reasons why we’re packing our bags and moving into this inner-city suburb, stat!
Eat Street Northshore
Of course, we’re no strangers to Brisbane’s iconic Eat Street Northshore, which opened in 2013. In fact, we’re regular attendees of the evening market that is arguably one of Brisbane’s best foodie experiences. After the markets grew too big for their previous location, Eat Street Northshore moved to a larger site in Hamilton Northshore and transformed into an epic multi-million-dollar destination for locals and tourists alike. The new Las Vegas-style renovation is home to almost 200 dining and entertainment shipping containers, all overlooking the river. Is it too much to say that this foodie precinct is enough to entice us to the neighbourhood? However, that’s not all…
Catering to the sophisticated homeowners of Brisbane, Hamilton Reach is a contemporary residential development that promises to bring all the best aspects of Brisbane lifestyle into one master-planned community. Situated right on the river, the development takes full advantage of its location and creates a community that benefits from resort-like amenities and services. How about your very own riverside beach and café? Or exclusive community events such as masterclasses and wine and cheese tastings?
However, all of these are just the icing-on-the-cake of what is a truly special addition to the inner-north. With a wide range of properties to choose from (including 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, freehold riverfront homes as well as a limited selection of penthouses), the residences that make up Hamilton Reach have all been designed to best-capitalise on the benefits of the community while also offering stylish, low-maintenance living. They’ve been designed by top Brisbane architects who understand what Brisbane locals want from their home. With apartments and homes that feature open-plan designs, premium fixtures and fittings, large windows, and balconies that are perfect for entertaining, there’s no reason why you can’t have it all.
Another benefit of living in Hamilton is the close proximity to some of Brisbane’s favourite lifestyle precincts. From the bustling retail strip of Racecourse Road and the exotic restaurants of Portside to the energy of Eagle Farm Racecourse and the local Royal Queensland Golf Club, the neighbourhood has plenty of drawcards if you enjoy getting out and about.
As much as we love the Hamo, sometimes there are reasons to leave. Whether you’re catching the CityCat into the city or making use of the Gateway and Pacific Motorways (beach trip, anyone?), this little pocket of Brisbane is one of the best-connected suburbs of Brisbane.
From new bars and restaurants opening each week to the foodie festivals that keep popping up on our calendar, no one knows more than us how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle. After all, we’re only human. However, suburbs like Hamilton make it so easy to live a healthy lifestyle! With most of the highlights mentioned above within easy walking distance and with plenty of free fitness classes daily in the local park at Hamilton Reach (courtesy of the Live Life Get Active program), adding some extra physical activity into your life couldn’t be easier. Now you don’t need to feel guilty for grabbing that extra ice cream sundae on Saturday night at Eat Street Northshore!
