Hendra Real Estate
Hendra is a Brisbane suburb located approximately 6km north-east of the city centre. Blessed with several transport options and many parks, walkways and the scenic Kedron Brook, Hendra feels close to everything while being away from it all.
Hendra began as a farming district connected to Nundah, and supplied much of the horse trainers and stablehands 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 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. 72.1% of households are families, almost half of which are couples with children. 74.8% of Hendra’s population is Australian-born, with the next most common countries of origin being England, New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland and Philippines.
