Brisbane’s wealthiest suburbs revealed

There is always a lot of attention on Sydney and Melbourne’s affluent areas and property markets, but what about the wealthy Australians in Brisbane?

Where do they live?

Unfortunately, Queensland postcodes didn’t feature on the ATO’s recent top 10 suburbs rich list.

However, there is an abundance of wealthy residents and high-priced properties, so with the help of, Domain Group, and census data, I’ve put together my own list of exclusive areas where Brisbane’s richest reside.

1. 4005 (Teneriffe, Inner Brisbane)

Population: 5,335

Median weekly household income: $2,476

Median house price: $2.74 million

Teneriffe, Inner Brisbane

According to CoreLogic data, the Inner Brisbane suburb of Teneriffe has the highest median house price of any area across the Queensland capital.

Despite being an industrial town in the past, the proximity to the city and riverside views has made it ideal for affluent, young Australians with average ages of just 20-39 and median weekly household income of $2,476, according to census data.

With few houses in this inner-city location, the median house price comes in at a whopping $2.74 million.

However, even units in Teneriffe are more expensive than the rest of Brisbane with a median of $683,000.

2. 4171 (Bulimba)

Population: 6,843

Median weekly household income: $2,433

Median house price: $1.54 million


Builmba’s leafy streets and large blocks attract Queenslanders able to spend big on impressive houses and an elegant lifestyle.

Sitting just 4km from the city and with all the amenities you could ever need, Bulimba is popular with young and established professionals.

Bulimba houses are seeing an impressive amount of interest with an average of 609 visits per property listing, way about the state average of 374.

With its close proximity to the city and gorgeous waterfront cottages, Bulimba has a median house value of $1.54 million, and residents earn an average of $2,443 per household, per week.

3. 4155 (Chandler)

Population: 1,442

Median weekly household income: $2,064

Median house price: $1.78 million

Chandler Brisbane

The exclusive suburb of Chandler is a high-demand market with an impressive median property price of $1.78 million to match its median weekly household income of $2,064.

The peaceful and secluded semi-rural suburb consists largely of bushland and residential properties on acreage and is close to Brisbane’s major commercial precincts of Carindale and Capalaba and the CBD is just 20 minutes away.

4. 4007 (Hamilton)

Population: 6,995

Median weekly household income: $1,894

Median house price: $1.55 million

Hamilton Brisbane

Despite a slightly lower median resident income of $98,488, Hamilton houses alone have grown 9% over the last five years to a median of $1.48 million.

The affluent and upscale postcode is popular for riverside high-end dining and a hip weekend food market with live gigs attracting a young average resident age of 20-39.

5. 4005 (New Farm)

Population: 12,542

Median weekly household income: $1,802

Median house price: $2.15 million

New Farm Park

Once the humble home of immigrants and workers, New Farm is now popular and low-maintenance living for people who like food, fun, and farmer’s markets right on their doorstep.

Thanks to the increasing desirability of the area, New Farm has enjoyed an enormous price growth in its property in the last 20 years as some of Brisbane’s high-income earners flock to take advantage of the exclusive lifestyle.

Like Bulimba, property demand in New Farm is strong, with recording 841 visits per property for listings in the area, nearly double the Queensland average of 374.
