Milton is an inner suburb of Brisbane, Australia, located approximately 2 kilometres west of Brisbane’s central business district. The suburb is a mixture of light industry, warehouses, commercial offices, retail and single and multiple occupancy residences.

The main roads are Milton Road, which runs beside the main western rail line and Coronation Drive (formerly River Road), which runs along the Brisbane River.

Notable landmarks in Milton include the Castlemaine Perkins brewery, known for the “Fourex” range of beers, the Suncorp Stadium (formerly Lang Park), and the Park Road strip of trendy restaurants and caf├ęs.

The suburb also once was the site of Brisbane’s major tennis courts where major international and national tournaments were held until the courts closed in the 1990s. As at 2006 a small ten-pin bowling alley is located at the Rosalie end of the suburb.

By Train, the Milton Railway Station is the first station on the Ipswich line west of Roma Street Station. It is served by commuter trains only.
