Welcome to Brisbane's North

These neighbourhoods that span the northern banks of the Brisbane River, reaching right up the coastline beyond, are synonymous with entertainment. It’s here that you’ll find the popular duo of racecourses - Doomben and Eagle Farm Racecourse sit within the quaint suburbs of Ascot and Hendra and come to life regularly with epic racing events.  

The Brisbane northern suburbs also lay claim to the closest beach to the CBD, Nudgee Beach, as well as the historic bayside precincts of Shorncliffe, Sandgate and Brighton. These suburbs may just be a short trip from the city, but they feel a world away. When exploring this area, expect to find quaint seaside towns featuring jetties, piers, and plenty of places to enjoy a swim or a sail.
