Chapel Hill is nine kilometres west from the Brisbane CBD and quite close to the Brisbane River.
With easy access to Mt Coot-tha lookout, botanical gardens, and the planetarium, Chapel Hill is surrounded by attractive recreational facilities.
Continuing modernisation and refurbishment of existing homes, coupled with the recent growth in Brisbane prices generally, has led to strong growth over the past 18 months.
Chapel Hill is neighbour to the suburbs of Indooroopilly and Kenmore Hills. Its main retail facilities are located at Indooroopilly and Kenmore with the large Indooroopilly Shoppingtown close by.
According to the 2001 Census there were 9,797 people living in the suburb with a median age of 37. The median individual income was between $500 and $599 per week. Of all occupied private dwellings 83% were either fully owned or being purchased; 14% were being rented.
