Newmarket is a thriving inner city suburb with tremendous character. It’s central and convenient, well positioned for local schools, and also offers spacious properties that give families room to grow. Local properties are a blend of classic character homes and cutting edge architecture.
Despite being so central and convenient, Newmarket is immersed in nature. It’s home to the Banks Street Reserve, a reserve which contains over 30 hectares of bushland as well as a large open space that was once a market garden. Enoggera Creek forms the southern boundary of Newmarket and contains a linear park and bike path.
Newmarket is rated the 45th most walkable neighbourhood in Brisbane, with a walk score of 71. Most errands can easily be accomplished on foot or by catching public transport, which is another in a long list of reasons why Newmarket has a reputation for being environmentally friendly and green.
Newmarket is characterised by its vibrant and energetic local community spirit. It has an eclectic cafe and restaurant scene, and there are amazing places to eat dotted all over Newmarket, including Homeslice, Crust and Co, and Golden Wood Teppanyaki. The recently revamped Newmarket Village is the area’s favoured entertainment and dining hub, and residents can now catch the latest flick at the newly completed Reading Cinemas Newmarket, which has wall-to-wall screens that offer a truly unique cinema experience.
