Hendra Real Estate
Hendra is a Brisbane suburb located approximately 6km north-east of the City centre. A phrase commonly used is ” pretty as a picture” as it is blessed with many parks, walkways and the scenic Kedron Brook giving the feeling of being away from it all whilst still located close to all infrastructure including numerous transport options. In Spring the flowering Jacaranda trees turn the streets purple. Known for it’s majestic Queenslanders boasting “Ashgrovian” 3 gable features on large blocks, generations of families have chosen to remain and enjoy their lifestyle choices. If you reside in the Stable district side of this suburb you can often hear horses walking up and down the streets.
Hendra began as a farming district connected to Nundah, and supplied much of the horse trainers and stable hands for Eagle Farm Racecourse in the early-to-mid 20th century. Following the First World War, Hendra was significantly built up, with many shops, churches and schools opened over the years. The Hendra Primary School was opened in 1864, drawing students from farms in neighbouring Ascot and Clayfield. The construction of the Gateway Arterial road in 1986 proved a major boost to Hendra’s appeal and property values, and industrial sites gave way to more attractive commercial areas for residents.
Hendra today is a peaceful, family-oriented suburb with a diverse mixture of cultures.
