Best Things to do in Red Hill

The charming historic inner Brisbane suburb of Red Hill, with its tin-roofed Queenslanders, steep windy streets and sweeping views is well worth checking out for the many hidden gems tucked away in its leafy locale. At its highest point of Waterworks Rd stands St Brigid's church, which was built in 1912, its striking design by Robin Dods inspired by the 15th century French Albi Cathedral.

From chocolate boutiques, French style bistro and bagel bakeries to quaint cafes, art house cinema in an historic skate centre, book shop, gallery and gorgeous parks, here are some of the best things to do and check out in Red Hill:
