Housing and Realestate

One of Brisbane's more prestigious suburbs, Clayfield is located about 7km north-east of the CBD, near Ascot and Albion, and is home to many superbly restored Queenslanders.

The suburb has seen the growth of medium density units, resulting in a strong rental market capitalising on the close proximity to the CBD, the airport and major transport routes.

Despite this, housing still makes up the majority of accommodation in the area. 

A progression from older residents and retirees to young families and couples has seen residential development slowing with people opting for renovation of older housing. 

Clayfield residents have access to a wide variety of transport, services and retail facilities, either in the suburb itself or a short distance away.

The Royal Brisbane Hospital is approximately 15 minutes away and there are a number of state and private schools in the area catering for both primary and secondary school children, including the private girls' school Clayfield College.

Toombul Shopping Centre and Nundah Village are the closest major shopping centres, with Westfield Chermside -- the largest regional shopping centre in Queensland -- a 20 minute drive away. 

Residents are also well catered for in the outdoor recreational stakes with parks, bike and walkways. 

The suburb has a lively cafe lifestyle and is close to Racecourse Road and the Eagle Farm and Doomben Race Courses. 

The revitalised restaurant district at Albion also offers residents a good choice of cuisine.

Public transport includes the train line with stops at Clayfield, Albion, Wooloowin, Eagle Junction, and Toombul. 

Bus routes are also available and residents also have easy access to the airport and Gateway Arterial.
