The inner-Brisbane suburban of Auchenflower is about 2.5 km west of the city, on the banks of the Brisbane River. There are plenty of dining options in and around the suburb, and Toowong Shopping Centre is just down the road.
The name Auchenflower comes from an early estate in the area, which was named, nostalgically, for the owner's family home in Scotland.
Auchenflower straddles two of the city's major traffic arteries, Milton Road which leads directly into the city and which connects with the Western Freeway, and Coronation Drive which flanks the north-western bank of the Brisbane River.
The delightful riverside walking and cycling track from the city to the University passes through the suburb.
Brisbane, Australia’s third largest city, has plenty to offer: sunshine and space; river cruises and historic walks; top-class restaurants specialising in Queensland seafood and beef.
South Bank Parklands is popular with residents and visitors alike, with its mix of inner-city beach-bathing, restaurants, leafy glades and cultural cocktail of art gallery, library, museum and performing arts centre.
