About Herston

Herston is an inner north suburb of Brisbane, located 3.6km from the CBD. Bordering Kelvin Grove, the suburb is perfectly located for students attending both QUT Kelvin Grove and UQ Herston Campuses. UQ’s Campus exclusively supports their Medical and Public Health faculty while Kelvin Grove QUT is for Creative Arts, Multimedia and Design. The Suburb has one of Queensland’s largest hospitals – The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and Brisbane’s biggest Inner City Golf Course – Victoria Park.


Herston is somewhat of an unsung hero as far as inner city Brisbane suburbs go. It’s central, filled with life, culture and a range of great food options. Herston has all of the benefits of Kelvin Grove, but with the added benefit of being closer to trains and an overall quiet, safe feel to the suburb.
