About Our Area

Tennyson


One of Brisbane’s most charming riverside suburbs, Tennyson boasts an idyllic leafy atmosphere and a row of some of Brisbane’s most expensive riverside real estate along King Arthur Terrace. In contrast, the suburb also has a selection of properties that border onto an industrial estate, which are modestly priced. The suburb is very small but, despite its size, boasts its own railway station with limited services to the City (Corinda and Yeronga are the next stops on the line). It also has good bus services in two directions — towards Indooroopilly Shoppingtown and the CBD via Fairfield. The commercial element in Tennyson is restricted. The old electricity power station, positioned in a prime location on the Brisbane River, was transformed into the Queensland Tennis Centre, which opened in January 2009. The Centre hosts the Brisbane International and also runs coaching and fixture programs for the general public. Shopping and entertainment facilities are available in nearby Graceville and Indooroopilly.
