A little bit off the grid, Spring Hill is right next door to the CBD. It’s an urban oasis with a village atmosphere and street upon street of charming cottages as well as cafes and take away restaurants in abundance.
It’s an always-evolving suburb, with newest arrival La Cache a Vin a very welcome addition to the food scene, not only in Spring Hill, but right across Brisbane. Thierry Galichet (ex-Montrachet), is your consummate host, and there you’ll dine on Lyonnaise dishes for which he’s famous.
Being sandwiched between the CBD and Fortitude Valley, elevated Spring Hill enjoys wonderful breezes and has numerous iconic landmarks to boast about.
These include the historic Spring Hill Baths, Centenary Pool and The Old Windmill. Do your laps at one of the pools, or take a jog around this super-quaint suburb.
