Places nearby Hamilton


Both the reach of the Brisbane River and the suburb of Hamilton take their name from Gustavus Hamilton, first innkeeper of the adjoining and historic Breakfast Creek Hotel.

This was a part of the colony where there was regular contact between early white settlers and the black guardians of the land. Even as convicts were hewing a carriageway from solid rock on the northern bank of the river, on a line now followed by the major arterial road of Kingsford Smith Drive, Aborigines were still gathering on the Hamilton flats for their corroborrees.

Historic Toorak House was built on what is now Anne Street by one-time Premier Sir James Dickson.Breakfast Creek Road hosts one of Brisbane"s oldest, surviving private homes, Newstead House, which was built for pioneering Darling Downs pastoralist Patrick Leslie in 1846.

Used for some years in the mid-19th century as an official government residence, Newstead House is now in the guardianship of the Royal Historical Society.

The City Cat terminal alongside Cameron Rocks Reserve provides a scenic ferry link with the centre of Brisbane. Just a gentle stroll from the Brekky Creek hotel complex, the reserve is a popular spot for picnickers and wedding parties.

Hamilton: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Oxford Street Bulimba

Embracing Brisbane's sun-filled outdoor lifestyle, Bulimba is a sprawling precinct home to quiet leafy streets and green spaces perfect for picnicking. At the heart of this laid back precinct is Oxford Street, which leads you past a vibrant assortment of shops, cafes, homeware and fashion stores down to a tranquil riverside setting, where CityCats and ferries come and go.

Take a stroll along Oxford Street to discover bustling breakfast bars, boutiques brimming with treasures and local institutions like the Balmoral Cineplex cinemas, where you can still see a movie for less than $10.

Palma Rosa

The elaborate Palma Rosa rose up among the slab huts and shanties of a fast growing city of new and freed settlers in 1887. Originally built as a grand private home by notable Italian architect, Andrea Stombuco, Palma Rosa has seen many interesting inhabitants during its 120 years. It now serves as the Headquarters to Queensland Branch of The English Speaking Union who welcomes the public for tours, hosts events and provides travellers' accommodation.

Bulimba Memorial Park

Take a close look at the sprawling weeping figs on trendy Bulimba's Oxford Street: they are what's left of a living tribute to serviceman killed in action in WWI. The trees, planted between 1919 and 1923, flanked three sides of the memorial park, dedicated in November 1919. Name plaques were once attached.

A wrought iron arch bearing the words 'Memorial Park' presents a formal gateway to the park and a lectern-like concrete pillar bears a brass memorial plaque to the soldiers, sailors and nurses of Bulimba who enlisted.

Local fundraising also enabled the park's two-storeyed grandstand to be built, in 1923, as a further memorial. Its architect is thought to have been GMH Addison who designed the ferry terminal building at the end of Oxford Street. The 4.6ha park is a popular place for family outings, picnickers and sport year-round.

Newstead Park Memorials

Newstead Park, on Brisbane River, conceals many stories-including its part in WWI. A memorial trophy cannon unveiled near the rotunda in 1922 caused controversy: an alderman suggested it was an 'emblem of evil' and that the money would be better spent supporting returned servicemen. The cannon was removed in the 1950s, donated to the 9th Battalion-and made way for the Australian American Memorial, one of only two such memorials in Australia, attesting to Brisbane's importance in the Allied victory in the South-West Pacific.

The grounds of Newstead House, Brisbane's oldest surviving residence, also hosted fundraising efforts during WWI. A dolls' carnival in 1917 was a special drawcard, raising money to send 'comforts' to the troops in the trenches, specifically the 25th Battalion.

Newstead House was occupied by the US Army from 1942 through to the end of WWII. The grounds reflect the American occupation and hold memorials to the Australian Navy Corvettes, submariners and Vietnam veterans.
