The market closed 111 property sales with an average of 37 days on market. Investors bought three- and four-bedroom houses the most as interstate migration continues to drive housing demand. In spite of the increase, affordability has been a key factor in Brisbane’s property market in general compared to other locations.

Sherwood’s housing market has been steadily trending upward for a few years given its family and child-friendly appeal. With heaps of access to parkways and green spaces, this suburb favours a variety of demographics from young families setting their roots, to dynamic professionals or entrepreneurs, and retirees.

About Sherwood

Sherwood is found 11 kilometres southwest of the city and is popular for its stately Queenslander homes, leafy riverside location, and wholesome outdoor lifestyle. Bordered by the suburbs of Corinda, Graceville, and Tennyson, Sherwood is the home of the heritage-listed Sherwood Arboretum, a 15-hectare parkland with thousands of trees. 

Far away enough from the city bustle, Sherwood has a convenient train station that takes commuters approximately 20 minutes to their work or school in the inner city. The suburb, however, is filled with heaps of quaint shops in an established business district along Sherwood Road, where residents can have all their essentials.

Sherwood has a number of good schools, both private and public, as well. It’s not unusual to see kids cycling around or groups enjoying a picnic or barbecue at the parklands during the weekends. Its laidback lifestyle makes Sherwood such a lovely location to raise a family.

“It has SO much going for it. Not only is it great for resale value, but it’s also close to everything – city, shopping, recreation, entertainment, transport, the river. It has a great sense of community about it, with excellent schools & general facilities. It’s the kind of place we not only want to live in…but would like to invest in also.” 


“There aren’t many suburbs with the old world feel and values left in Brisbane and those that have the same feelings are far and few. Most streets are tree-lined (mature trees), the classic Queenslander architecture and so many well-renovated homes on big blocks and space for kids to run around is wonderful! It’s just a wonderful place to start and bring up your family!”
