From dairy farm to family haven
Annerley has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a dairy farm, and today the suburb is home to just over 11,000 Queenslanders, with the many restored “Queenslanders” – referring to the houses that are so characteristic of this area – providing shelter to them. A mere 4 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, Annerley takes its name from a township in England, and has been known as such since 1892, when the former Boggo Post Office, dating from 1880, was officially renamed.
Today, Annerley hosts a diverse and eclectic mix of people, architecture and food, thanks to an influx of Greek, Italian, Asian and African immigrants.
Urban renewal and gentrification has turned Annerley’s former low-cost apartments and ramshackle houses into sought-after abodes for the young professionals and families that call Annerley home. Annerley feels too comfortable to be an inner-city suburb, but herein lies its allure.
Facts about Annerley
“The old Australia was like a castle, trying to keep out all possible invasion, cultural or physical. Now the nation is on a cultural adventure, is trying to go everywhere, to take a look at the new world outside, in order to know more about this country, to understand it better.”
