Kenmore is a leafy suburb situated along the Brisbane River, approximately 10km from the Brisbane CBD. Kenmore is a popular choice for professional residents and small families with a high number of townhouses and units. Kenmore is well connected to the city, Brisbane’s Northern Suburbs, the Brisbane airport and both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, thanks to Centenary Highway, the Western Freeway and Legacy Way. Residents can enjoy a short commute for work or play, travelling either by car or public transport. Where cafes, restaurants, medical centres and shopping centres abound, such as Kenmore Village, Kenmore Plaza and the Indooroopilly shopping centre, Kenmore offers an abundance of lifestyle choices. Additionally, Kenmore has a wide selection of parkland to enjoy those warm Brisbane days and large sporting ovals to run and play.
Kenmore is known by its locals as a quiet and friendly neighbourhood, close to everything you need. With plenty of schools and dining options, as well as an abundance of choices for shopping, Kenmore locals can have a busy and fulfilled lifestyle without even leaving their suburb. Kenmore is far enough from the city to have homes with large blocks, separate houses and a safe, relaxed community feel – yet close enough for daily commuters.
Travelling to different parts of Brisbane is easy, with most locations accessible by car, and with regular bus timetables available. Indooroopilly and St Lucia are not far if the train or ferry are your preference. The homes in Kenmore reflect its development in the 1950s and ’60s, and many are a renovators dream with large blocks in great positions. Kenmore is another one of Brisbane’s older suburbs that offers classic Brisbane charm along with the perks and ease of modern-day living.
There are several schools in Kenmore, both private and public from Prep-12. These include Kenmore State School, Kenmore South State School, Kenmore State High School, Our Lady of the Rosary School and more private options including the Brisbane Montessori School. The Penrose team can offer their personal knowledge of Kenmore’s school options, with their own children in local schools.
Locals can find work in the many retail and hospitality options within the suburb or close by in Indooroopilly. Alternatively, they can enjoy a relatively short commute into the CBD, or even the Gold Coast, thanks to Kenmore’s extensive highway and public transport connections.
