Alderley is named after Alderley Edge, a village in England. It sits on part of the traditional lands of the Turrbal and Jagera First Nations people who lived here for thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans. Like most of inner Brisbane, Alderley and the surrounding areas were successively opened up to free settlers after the closure of Morton Bay penal settlement in 1842.
Qld Heritage Property Hot Spot
The local Post Office opened in 1878, and a parcel of residential lots were offered at auction in 1890. Today some of the oldest buildings in Alderley are heritage-listed – Strathearn, Farrington House, the Newmarket Brickworks Chimney etc.
Transport Options For Residents
Part of Alderley’s attraction for residents is its convenient location on Enoggera Road, one of the main arterial roads into the Brisbane CBD from the north. Other major roads Samford Road and South Pine Road also terminate in the middle of Alderley where they join Enoggera Road. These roads provide commuters with a straight run into the CBD.
Excellent Public Transport
For those who prefer to park and ride, Alderley is also conveniently located on the Ferny Grove railway line into Brisbane and has its own station. Plus there is a regular bus service into the city.
Good Local Travel Options
Getting around Alderley and surrounding suburbs is also similarly convenient with major suburban roads and residential streets. However, Alderley locals have access to what they call a ‘never-ending’ bike path. They can access all the important amenities – schools, shops, cafes, entertainment, parks and recreational facilities – on 2 wheels rather than 4 if they want to.
As is to be expected of one of Brisbane’s older established suburbs, there are plenty of well-maintained Queenslanders nestled amongst more modern homes, apartments and townhouses. Many have a current market value of 1 million+ but we’re also seeing large homes being listed for over $3 million.

For more substantial fare, the iconic Alderley Arms Hotel, a much-loved favourite with locals, offers bistro dining options and has a popular sports bar. Lovers of ethnic cuisines are likewise well catered for, and most of the major fast-food chains also have local outlets.
Healthcare Facilities and Services
One reason Alderley stands out as a family-friendly suburb is its proximity to health facilities. The Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital is in Hershey, a few suburbs away. Within Alderley itself there is a general practitioner, chiropractor, and the Alderley Child Health Service paediatric clinic.
Neighbouring suburbs likewise have medical centres, private practices, GPs, alternative therapies, and a range of other medical and health services. These all make Alderley a prime location if you’re looking to rent your property to families.
Parks and Outdoor Facilities
For Alderley’s many young families, its most popular assets are the green spaces and playground and recreational facilities. Local parks Sedgley Park, Grinstead Park, and Banks Street Reserve are firm favourites with locals. They offer playground facilities, bush walks, nature hikes, picnic facilities and plenty more.
