Hamilton Real Estate
Hamilton is a hilly waterfront suburb along the bank of the Brisbane River, with stunning views of the CBD and surrounding areas. Just 7km from the inner city, Hamilton is close to everything and is known for its upscale retail and residential development and international cruise terminal, Portside Wharf.
Hamilton is believed to take its name from the Hamilton Hotel, which opened in the mid-1860s as the first hotel in the area. The elevation and spectacular views made Hamilton especially appealing to wealthy aristocrats and clergy, and soon all manner of villas and mansions filled the landscape, many remaining to this day.
Early Hamilton was a predominantly residential area, nestled comfortably between the Eagle Farm and Albion racecourses, and the Royal Queensland Golf Links. Designated a town in 1904 and then incorporated into Brisbane in 1925, Hamilton continued to develop. Inter-war housing facilitated impressive population growth, while services such as tram lines, Hamilton Primary School and large shade trees along main roads continued to keep Hamilton as one of Brisbane’s most-loved suburbs.
