Tucked away in the inner northern suburbs of Brisbane, Kelvin Grove may be best known as home of the celebrated Kelvin Grove Urban Village, which includes the Queensland University of Technology Campus. Kelvin Grove also sees a lot of families purchasing in the area in order to be eligible for the popular kelvin Grove State College.
Known for its quaint Pre-war Queenslander and workers cottage style homes, Kelvin Grove is understandably a very popular place to live, as it also provides the perfect ‘quiet yet connected’ lifestyle.
