Kelvin Grove

    Kelvin Grove, Brisbane (0-5km)

Rent: apartment rents are in the lower to mid range, house rental prices are higher

Vibe: mostly bland but an evolving community feel

Location: Parks, Inner city, Near QUT/Shillington

Kelvin Grove is one of those places that you have to live in to appreciate. It has attractive streets, but lacks an overriding identity or  soul, which might explain why the Kelvin Grove Urban Village has been built. This is a very convenient suburb for students at QUT, and anyone who works at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. It is close to Paddington and the city centre. In recent years, more apartments have gone up. The best thing about this suburb is the weekly Village Markets held very Saturday morning. (More info below and to your left <<<)
