Only 7km from the CBD, Ascot is one of Brisbane’s prestige suburbs. It has easy access to the city and excellent local amenities and infrastructure.
A feature of the area is the Eagle Farm Racecourse, which comes alive during the Winter and Spring Racing Carnivals. Ascot is also home to the Racecourse Road Festival, held earlier in the year.
Local street stores and cafes supplement the Centro Toombul Shopping Centre, located only 10 minutes away.
Public transport is excellent, with Ascot train station and regular bus routes to the CBD and surrounding suburbs easily accessible to residents. For those preferring water transport, the City Cat river service is less than five minutes away. Passengers can catch the ferry at the jetty between Quarry Street and Raceview Terrace in Hamilton.
Ascot Primary School and St Margaret’s Anglican Girl’s School are both located in the suburb, with St Rita’s Secondary College, Clayfield College and Hamilton Primary School close by.
Ascot has experienced strong growth in median house price during the past five years. However, the median house price does not reflect the diversity of pricing available within the suburb. As with many suburbs, Ascot has a range of pricing from the most expensive to the more affordable styles appealing to a mix of families, singles and young couples.
