Banyo Real Estate
Banyo’s residents call it the best kept secret in Brisbane. Easy access to the train line, Sandgate Road and Brisbane Airport make it one of the most conveniently located suburbs in Queensland. Local educational and recreational facilities stand head and shoulders above other Brisbane suburbs. Best of all, whether you want to rent, buy or build, Banyo remains remarkably affordable.
Originally populated by the Oondumbi people of the Turrabul Clan, Banyo saw its first European settlers as early as 1849. Then named Clapham Junction, the area was later renamed Banyo after the local Aboriginal word for “a small hill or mountain”. The name change coincided with the opening of the Banyo railway station, which is now the heart of Banyo’s thriving commercial district.
Banyo’s population has a slightly higher percentage of Australian-born residents than the national average, with the next most common countries of birth being New Zealand, India, England, Phillipines and China. While over 80% of Banyo’s population speak only English, the remaining percentage is made up of a vibrant mix of Punjabi, Mandarin, Hindi, Tongan and Vietnamese.
