Known as a peaceful leafy suburb, Brookfield offers a combination of city opportunity and a rural lifestyle. Acreage is commonplace in Brookfield with expansive views, yet the city with its wealth of work and education opportunities is a mere 20-minute drive away. With new shops and restaurants popping up in nearby precincts Indooroopilly and Kenmore, Brookfield only continues to thrive and grow.
Residents of Brookfield enjoy a short commute into a relaxed and comfortable suburb with ample open space and green views, making it a great place for families to grow and thrive.
The Legacy Way Tunnel has made commuting from Brookfield to the rest of Brisbane much more streamlined, almost eliminating congestion to make commutes even easier.
Although the dining options in Brookfield are more limited compared to the vibrant restaurant scene in nearby Brisbane City, the dining-rooms of Brookfield are rare gems.
For example, Wild Canary Botanical Bistro is a true farm to table experience, located amidst the lavish Brookfield Gardens’ retail shop. Diners delight in meals loaded with fresh produce and garnished with bright herbs, all supplied from local farmers within the region.
Another unique dining establishment within the area is the Brookfield General Store and Cafe. At this charming, restored 1800s school building, diners relax in the laid-back, country-style chairs and tables in an al fresco dining area. The General Store serves family favourites such as wood-fired ribs, burgers, and pizzas with generous toppings. Additionally, on their way out of the restaurant, diners can grab a loaf of bread or a jug of fresh milk from the convenience store.
The local community also comes alive with regular markets and the annual Brookfield show held at the show-grounds. The uniqueness of Brookfield’s acreage combined with its proximity to the CBD makes this an incredibly unique and treasured suburb. Once you become a local, we doubt you’ll want to leave anytime soon!
