SHERWOOD

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

With wide streets, lush green surrounds and hard-to-beat Queenslander homes, Sherwood is a true gem on Brisbane’s outer skirts. Preferring to keep things low-key, Sherwood is a quiet neighbourhood with a strong sense of community that keeps locals loyal.

Lifestyle

Mature, peaceful and established, Sherwood’s leafy tree-lined streets and established Queenslanders with landscaped gardens set the scene for this community with a small-town feel.

Sherwood’s atmosphere is generous and welcoming. The lush green parklands surrounding Oxley Creek appeal to families and are perfect for leisurely weekend activities. The local action happens at the heritage-listed Arboretum, which is the community heart of Sherwood. This reserve encompasses over 16 hectares of public multi-use space – lawns, barbeque facilities, playgrounds and walking tracks along the river.

On weekends, the scattering of boutiques and cafés along Sherwood Road hum with activity. Come Christmas time, all eyes are on Sherwood for their ‘must-see’ light display that draws crowds from around Brisbane.

Sharing the key thoroughfare of Oxley Road with its neighbour Graceville, Sherwood relies on neighbouring amenities to mix things up. Locals also take advantage of nearby Rocklea Markets, a Brisbane institution for fresh produce, and the educational facilities at Saint Lucia, located just north of the river.

With its enticing parklands, schools, stores and access to public transport, Sherwood is ideal for families. Established couples and families are drawn to the area for its generous family homes and opportunities for spacious living. Long-time locals stay loyal to the area, staking claim to some of Sherwood’s more prestigious properties.
