A neighbourhood pretty as a picture and characterised by illustrious Queenslander homes which are surrounded by brightly coloured Jacaranda and Poinciana trees. Ascot is a family friendly area of beautiful leafy streets and quiet parklands. This charming district has attracted established families who are eager to own one of the many heritage homes that line the streets.

Ascot is not without its lively movements. Doomben and Eagle Farm are two of Brisbane’s most notable racecourses which can be found within its borders. Ascot has been associated with Queensland horse racing industry for many years. The suburb also had one of the earliest rail services in the state to enable punters easy access to the tracks.

This is certainly the suburb to be in when racing season starts. The district sees a large number of visitors not only during racing season but also when the season is over. Instead of accommodating horse racing, the open space hosts weekly markets, a mecca of fresh produce, food stalls and other bits and pieces.

A further attraction nearby is Racecourse Road which stretches between Eagle Farm and the Brisbane River. This stretch hosts an array of eateries, grocers and bars to entertain the locals and visitors to the area.

As a result on the grandeur of the suburbs homes (or their increasing price tags) the neighbourhood has attracted quite the polished crowd. Well established families form the majority of residents who are attracted by the family friendly nature of the district, its parks, playgrounds with top schools nearby.

The state school options for Ascot include the highly desirable Ascot State School and high schools Aviation High & Clayfield College. Most families in this area choose to enrol their children into private schools which include St Agatha’s Primary School, St Rita’s College, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School and Nudgee College.

A railway line was extended all the way to Ascot due to the popularity of the horse races. The train runs alongside the racecourse which gives locals easy public transport option to the Brisbane CBD.
