About Balmoral

  • Postcode: 4171
The small suburb of Balmoral, only 8.5km from Brisbane's CBD, is another area that has benefited from growing consumer interest in living close to the city. For a suburb so close to the city, Balmoral offers several parks, is within five minutes of Colmslie Reserve, and corners onto Hawthorne Park. For water lovers, Colmslie Reserve also provides boat access to the Brisbane River. The suburb has a lively cafe and local cinema precinct and Cannon Hill Shopping Centre complements local stores in the suburb. Although Balmoral doesn't have its own rail station (the closest are Cannon Hill and Morningside), regular bus services, as well as the CityCat, ensure residents can access the city and other major centres easily. Residents are also close enough to the Gateway Motorway and the Southeast Freeway to make weekend trips to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. Schools in and around Balmoral are Bulimba State School, Lourdes Hill College, Balmoral High School, and Cannon Hill Anglican College. University students are also within 15 minutes of the Griffith University campus at South Brisbane and a short ferry or bus ride from the QUT Gardens Point campus.
