Housing Styles and Demographics

Cannon Hill is going through quite a transition with a lot of exciting developments for shopping and entertainment. There are several new and historic Queenslander properties to be found.  These are perfect for young families, or even older couples. In the 2016 Census, the median age of people living in Cannon Hill was 34 years.

Some residents describe Cannon Hill being like a country town just outside a city.  This is because it has close proximity to Brisbane City, but with a pleasant family orientated community. While most properties are stand-alone, new developments are bringing more apartment living options to the area.


Cannon Hill, the suburb, was established in 1867.  This is the same time Cannon Hill House was constructed, before it burnt down in 1927.  The owner of the house, Thornhill Weedon, called it Cannon Hill House because of two fallen trees which resembled a cannon.

The Cleveland railway line opened in 1889 and went through Cannon Hill. The next notable addition to the suburb was Cannon Hill State School in 1915, and is one of the main Heritage listings for the area.

In 1931, the sale yards for Brisbane’s livestock were relocated from Newmarket to Cannon Hill.

Since then the area has transformed adding St Oliver Plunkett School, and Cannon Hill Anglican College, and many shops and restaurants.
