Hendra is located about nine kilometres north-east of the Brisbane CBD and borders the Gateway Motorway, Nundah, Clayfield, and Ascot. As with its neighbouring suburbs, Hendra is predominantly a family-oriented community. The local school, Hendra Secondary College, is supplemented by state and private schools in neighbouring suburbs. Toombul Shopping Centre complements Hendra's local stores, and services residents with major retail and supermarket outlets. For those willing to travel a bit further, Lutwyche shopping centre and Westfield Chermside are also close by. Hendra plays host to the Doomben Racecourse, parks, bike and walkways. Kedron Brook runs through Hendra, Nundah and Wooloowin and has walking and biking paths running alongside. Public transport services in the area are excellent with the northern train line running through the area and Hendra, Albion, Wooloowin, Eagle Junction, and Toombul train stations all close by. Regular bus services also make getting into and out of the City easy for Hendra residents. Brisbane's domestic and international airports are just as easily accessible by car or the Air Train. Apart from some light industrial and commercial lots, Hendra is zoned Residential A and therefore all residential properties are houses. The area has seen a progression of residents from retirees and older residents to young families and couples. Source: REIQ
