Housing and Realestate

Located about 10km north of the Brisbane CBD, Chermside is a well-established Brisbane suburb and is known for several local landmarks including the Prince Charles Hospital, Westfield Chermside and the very popular Kedron-Wavell Services club.

While the suburb still has many weatherboard homes constructed during the 1950s and 1960s, many higher density developments including a number of new townhouse and unit developments have been constructed in recent years.

Chermside residents have witnessed a renewal phase in the suburb's lifecycle in recent years, which has been assisted by the development of retail shopping facilities along Gympie Road and the relocation of the Australian Taxation Office. 

The recently built Holy Spirit Hospital on the grounds of the Prince Charles Hospital has also assisted in the renewal phase.

Westfield Chermside, the largest suburban shopping centre in Queensland, is the major retail anchor for all the surrounding suburbs.

A scattering of parks in the area provide good walk and bikeways however, for those looking to spend the day by the water, the bayside suburb of Sandgate is also only a 10-minute drive away.

Families are serviced by schools in neighbouring suburbs including Wavell State School, Wavell State High School, Our Lady of the Angels Primary School and Somerset Hills Primary School.

Chermside contains a variety of restaurants, retail businesses and leisure facilities such as the Chermside aquatic centre and a cinema complex at the Westfield Chermside shopping centre.
