ANNERLEY

Suburb Profile

Annerley has seen a resurgence in recent years with people flocking to get their slice of the suburb which is only 5km from the CBD and is filled with character homes, charming shopping areas and great public transport.

A recent renaissance has happened with the local Annerley Junction shopping district (near The Junction Hotel) on Ipswich Road where interesting, independent stores are trading alongside the stalwarts of the suburb. The Annerley Junction Traders Association also runs two major events each year with the Jumble Sale during mid-year and the Christmas Fair in December.

Annerley is eclectic with a mixture of younger families, artists and older generations who come together in a rich tapestry of culture and interest. Near Chardon's Corner Pub is another great shopping area with the famous Cafe O Mai, a Vietnamese cafe which has authentic and delicious food and a beautiful atmosphere.

Where Annerley used to be characterised by share houses and boarding houses, it's now housing young professionals and those who are used to inner-city living. There is still an eclectic mix of all types of people which contribute to a distinct and multi-national environment.

Around 1866 a hotel was licensed at the corner of Boggo and Ipswich Roads called The Junction Hotel around which a host of shops sprung up to service the surrounding farmland.

Annerley was named by the Hon. Digby Denham, former Premier of Queensland (1911-15) after a township in Surrey, England known as Annerly. Denham Street was named after him and his house still stands on the corner of Annerley Road (previously Boggo Road).

Before it's renaming, Annerley was known as Stephens Shire after Thomas Blackett Stephens. Stephens acquired 76ha of property in 1857 which is now known as Ekibin where he established a fellmongery and tanning business in in 1862 in Essie Street. He also started a farming business which became the largest in the district. He became alderman and later Mayor of the Brisbane Municipal Council and served on many committees.
