With its strong sense of community, St Lucia balances its peaceful nature with University life. St Lucia looks to its neighbours for vibrant nightlife and restaurants, but when it comes to cafés and casual eateries St Lucia more than holds its own.

Renowned for its educational precinct, a large swathe of the suburb is dedicated to the University of Queensland (UQ). The good news for locals is that many of the UQ recreational facilities are open to the public. The university provides well-groomed sporting grounds, parklands, eclectic cafés, bars and local theatre shows.

Locals take advantage of cycling and walking tracks, picnic facilities and lush green grounds. Sporting fields and the local golf course also attract a crowd, with the prestigious Indooroopilly Golf Course just next door.

With the university comes great public transport – bus services and the CityCat Ferry provide links to the nearby CBD, shopping hub Indooroopilly Shopping Mall and adjacent riverside locations.

Neighbours

With its ideal location adjacent to the University of Queensland, students and young professionals make up a large proportion of the suburb. Young families are also drawn to the area for its educational facilities, with older residents staking claim to the quieter pockets of the neighbourhood.
