Since the 1860s, Paddington, which includes the village of Rosalie, has been considered a top place to live. Rich in history, traditional Queenslanders, quaint workers’ cottages and stately residences, such as Government House, grace the steep streets feeding into the terraces. Paddington Water Tower, Ithaca Fire Station and many other structures, are on the Queensland Heritage Register.

Highly diverse, the friendly locals range from singles, professionals, families, retirees and students. The leafy neighbourhoods, cafés, restaurants, designer clothing retailers, op shops, antique dealers, bars and art galleries, add to the lifestyle appeal. Much of the suburb’s character has been retained and there are no high rises.
