Ascot Real Estate
Ascot is one of Brisbane’s most well-established suburbs, known for its tree-lined Racecourse Road shopping district, horse racing carnivals and rich mix of beautiful old and new homes. Just 7km from the city centre, Ascot is conveniently accessible but manages to avoid the hustle and bustle of inner-city suburbs.
The Aboriginal Turrbal clan first occupied the area where Ascot stands today, naming it Yowoggerra. Convict labour was used to clear land and build roads from the 1830s, and wealthy free settlers began to purchase land along the Brisbane River. In 1863, the Eagle Farm Racecourse was built and the surrounding suburb named Ascot, referencing the prestigious Ascot Racecourse in England.
The popularity of the racecourse prompted the construction of both a railway line and a tram service. This fuelled residential and commercial development in Ascot and Hamilton, with a shopping strip developing along Racecourse Road. This strip today consists largely of cafes and boutiques offering high-end products and services for the discerning customer.
