St Lucia makes up the postal code 4067. Only 4 kilometres from the city and dominated by the sandstone buildings and manicured lawns of the University of Queensland, St Lucia is unrivalled for convenience, amenities and quality of life. The University is a drawcard for students and academics from near and far, who merrily make their home in apartments, townhouses and sharehouses close to the university campus. The proximity to the city, the striking settings and the unmatched facilities make this neighbourhood a chic and convenient home for established professionals and families, too.
Many of the facilities at the University are open to the public – so if you like pools, gyms, sporting facilities, libraries, cinemas, theatres and galleries right on your doorstep (and who doesn’t?), the amenities here are unmatched. A few small shopping strips around the suburb conceal excellent local bistros and tasty takeaways, as well as handy convenience stores. And of course, coffee here is outstanding – what would students do without it? While you’ll find almost everything you need without leaving the suburb, the public transport here is unbeatable. You can catch a bus to the city, ride your bike to Indooroopilly, catch a ferry to West End or walk across the minimalistic Eleanor Schonell Bridge to Dutton Park.
