Sherwood QLD


Postcode: 4075

Sherwood is one of Brisbane’s oldest and most beautiful suburbs bounded by some magnificent reaches of the Brisbane River.

Located on the southern side of the Brisbane River only eight kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, Sherwood has benefited from the enormous buyer interest in near and inner city living.

Residents also have easy access to Indooroopilly Shoppingtown and the University of Queensland. Public transport is good; Sherwood has its own railway station central to the suburb.

Like its neighbours, Corinda and Graceville, Sherwood is a leafy quiet residential suburb with some homes located alongside the Brisbane River. One of the city’s older suburbs, Sherwood has fine old Queenslanders and post-war homes and many opportunities for renovation.

There is a thriving small business and commercial centre on one side of the railway line, including a newly constructed Woolworths – there is also good access to nearby retail areas in Graceville and Corinda. The suburb is supported by a number of churches, primary schools, and sporting fields.

Sherwood’s popularity with Brisbane residents is guaranteed by its beautiful older homes and its easy access to the city and other facilities.
