Balmoral (4171) is situated very close to Brisbane’s city centre, 9 km on the Eastside on a hill with fabulous views of the city. It has a quaint, established Queensland feel about it with its large traditional homes which attract well heeled professional couples and small families. However, due to its proximity to Brisbane and general appeal, population pressures have meant an increase in medium density apartment development. Currently, about 3,800 people live in Balmoral, with an average age of 35 years and predominantly of Australian, English and New Zealand descent. Most speak only English at home, although there is also some Spanish.
