Due to its close proximity to the Brisbane CBD and its position alongside the Brisbane River, Fairfield has experienced very strong growth in the last five years. As one of Brisbane’s river suburbs, Fairfield is ideally situated and attracts buyers who want to secure attractive property close to the water.
Fairfield has easy access to major arterial roads, schools, shops and the other infrastructure. It is well located with close proximity to many public and private amenities. The closest hospital is the Princess Alexandra Hospital and the neighbouring suburb of Yeronga has two primary schools and one high school. It is also close to the University of Queensland across the river at St Lucia — the City Cat service and the Green Bridge are located in nearby Dutton Park. The major shopping centre is at Fairfield Gardens, which supplements high street outlets. It is also close to the restaurant district of West End. There are plenty of parklands such as Downs Oval and Goodwin, Leyshon, Robertson and Fehlberg Parks, bikeways and access to the river at the Fairfield Canoe Club at the Brisbane Corso Reserve. A train station is located in the suburb and plenty of bus routes heading to the university and the city are available to residents.
