Once a little-known area, Stones Corner is becoming a sought-after suburb following recent urban renewal and increased demand. Under 6 kilometres from the city, it’s just a ‘stone’s throw’ away from public transport, shopping, dining and entertainment.
What’s in a name
Innovation has always been at the heart of Stones Corner. In fact, it was an eager businessman named James Stone who purchased the ‘corner’ junction between south-east Logan Road and Old Cleveland Road back in 1875. Planning to build a hotel, he instead made the switch to brew ginger beer and the rest is history. In 1975 Stones Corner was included as neighbouring ‘Greenslopes’ before claiming its own 42 years later.
Stones Corner is still a relatively new Brisbane suburb. In a small population of over 2,000 the average age are young professionals aged 20 to 39 with flats and apartments existing as the main housing structure.
After reclaiming its name in 2017, it’s hospitality and shopping had a refresh following gentrification to the area. Brisbane City Council added free wi-fi, an updated parkland and a speed limit to 40 km/h to accompany for the increased foot traffic as the suburb’s expected boom began building momentum.
Cafes like the popular Lady Marmalade drew crowds and Melbourne-styled-laneway eateries were added for the suburb to expand. It even has its own annual festival, complete with live music, food trucks and local brewers joining in the celebrations.
Proximity to essentials Stones Corner is incredibly central for both drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. Just a short commute to the city, Stones Corner also has a dedicated bus station and a new Veloway cycleway on O’Keefe Street connecting Buranda to South Brisbane and Underwood for cyclists.
The Princess Alexander Hospital and Greenslopes Private Hospital are in close range, alongside a mix of both private and state schools, as well as easy access to universities such as Griffith and QUT. For those looking to get active, Hanlon Park is a superb, open-green space connecting Norman Creek to the nature park. Ideal for a morning jog, kicking a soccer ball with the kids or catching up with neighbours for a barbeque, it’s a great spot to relax and unwind.
