Facts about Brisbane Airport
Brisbane Airport is one of Brisbane’s newer suburbs, located approximately 14km east of the CBD. The airport was previously part of Eagle Farm, but with over 360 businesses and over 17,000 people working in the airport precinct each day, the decision was made to formalise the area as its own suburb. At this stage, there are no plans to add residential areas to the suburb, but it is growing daily as a business hub, as well as providing a number of services to tourists spending time in the city.
The Brisbane Airport area has a long history in Queensland aviation history as well as the general history of Brisbane. In 1839 the area was used as land for a convict farm, and was named Eagle Farm after the presence of wedge-tailed eagles in the area. Almost 90 years later in 1923, the site was officially chosen as an aerodrome only for flights to be stopped in 1931 as the area was determined to be too much of a swamp land to be used for an airport. By the 1940’s the aerodrome was re-commissioned and used as a US military base during WWII. The decision was made in 1946 to re-open the airport under the name of Brisbane Airport, utilising the runways and infrastructure built by the American military.
Fast forward to 2014 and the airport now sits on 2,700 hectares of land and has undergone major road and infrastructure upgrades and is the third busiest airport in Australia behind Sydney and Melbourne seeing around 1.23 million passengers moving through it each year.
For those who use the airport on a regular basis, and want to live close by, the airport lies adjacentto the suburbs of Pinkenba, Nundah, Ascot and Hamilton, and the amount that you have to spend on housing will likely determine which suburb you choose. Pinkenba offers an average property price of $385,000 or an average rental price of $420 per week; Nundah’s average property price sits at $610,000 with the average rental price at $420 per week; properties in Ascot sell for an average of $1,100,000 and rent for an average for $680 per week; and properties in Hamilton average a sale price of $1,015,000 or a rental price of $750 per week.
