Wooloowin Real Estate
Located a short 6 km from the Brisbane CBD, Wooloowin is as close to the city as possible while still enjoying a relaxed suburban lifestyle. This in-demand suburb has only gone from strength to strength over the decades, and is now one of Brisbane’s most popular areas for people of all ages to live. The name is derived from the language of local indigenous people thought to mean pigeon or a species of fish.
Only 1.1km in radius Wooloowin is a tight knit community making it a great buy for investors, renters and owner occupiers across all walks of life.
Wooloowin began as an outlying suburban middle class district, serviced by both the Wooloowin and Eagle Junction train stations. As the suburb developed, more and more services came to call it home. Wooloowin primary school opened in 1914, a local shopping area was established in 1924, and Kedron State High School satisfied post-primary education needs from 1956. By 1996, Wooloowin was a highly desirable location due to its proximity to major shopping centres, reliable public transport and having 70% of its dwellings as free standing.
Wooloowin is home to several heritage-listed sites. These include the Holy Cross Laundry, Albion Fire Station, Kalinga Park and Kedron Lodge. Kedron Lodge in particular is noteworthy for being the original home of Alfred Lutwyche, the first judge of the Supreme Court Bench of Queensland.
