If you’re dreaming of living in a sought-after Brisbane suburb, rubbing shoulders with the well-to-do residents of the sunny city, it’s your lucky day! We’ve scoured the listings on to find some fantastic properties in the most prestigious suburbs across Brisvegas, available right now for a fraction of the median suburb price.


With a median house price of $1.825 million, houses in pricey Teneriffe are out of reach for all but the wealthiest Queenslanders—unless a waterfront unit is on your radar, that is! For as little as $575,000 you could call this Beeston Street two-bedder home. It even has two car spaces, perfect for a couple hoping to step onto the property ladder.


New Farm

In New Farm you’ll need a budget of around $1.634 million if you’re hoping to secure a freestanding house, but an apartment will set you back less than a third of that! This two-bedroom apartment on Bowen Terrace is for sale, seeking offers over $429,000. It has recently been renovated and is on the top floor, so it’s ready for you to move in or rent out straight away.



You might not be able to afford a sprawling mansion in Ascot where the median house price is a scary $1.415 million, but you can still enjoy living there if you’re prepared to downsize to a unit. For just $599,000 this three-bedroom townhouse with two bathrooms and a wrap-around balcony could be yours. It’s also close to both Eagle Farm and Doomben Racecourses—perfect if you enjoy a flutter!



With a median house price of 1.335 million, Bulimba is one of the most expensive locales in the Queensland capital. But this townhouse with three bedrooms and just minutes from Oxford Street could be yours for under $600,000. It’s ideal for a buyer who wants the best of the Bulimba café culture without the massive mortgage.



The median house price in Hamilton might be a touch over $1.3 million, but there are still bargains to be had in this coveted suburb. Listed at offers over $699,000, this three-bedroom home on Jackson Street has gorgeous polished floorboards and a private yard, making it ideal for first homebuyers with kids or pets.


Fig Tree Pocket

In Fig Tree Pocket, eight kilometres from the centre of Brisbane, the median house price has topped $1.25 million, making it an exclusive address. If your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, don’t despair! At $859,000, this Farnham Street home is a real bargain, boasting three bedrooms and a stunning pool area.



If you’d love to live in Hawthorne, but your budget maxes out at a million bucks, you’re in luck! This four-bedroom property on Hawthorne Road is up for grabs with a price guide in the mid to high $900,000 range, but you’d better get in quick! Close to the bus and train, with schools and shops within walking distance, it won’t be on the market for long—especially as it’s more than $200,000 below the suburb median of $1.21 million.


Fortitude Valley

Living in “the Valley” doesn’t come cheap, with homes here selling for a median price of $1.15 million. But, if you’re prepared to embrace high-density living, you could snap up an apartment for around half that figure. With a gym, resort-style pool and amazing views, this apartment on Brookes Street certainly has a lot to offer, and is listed for sale at just $600,000.



The median house price in Auchenflower is an eye-watering $1.15 million thanks to its proximity to the CBD and the fantastic lifestyle on offer. Great for a young couple or downsizers, this Kingsford Street unit is up for grabs at just $425,000, and has all the amenities you could want in a home, close to transport, the Park Road dining precinct, and stunning parklands.
