About This Community

Central Ward is at the very centre of our growing city, in the fastest and most vibrant area of a growing state.

Geographically the Ward is made up of the Central Business District, Fortitude Valley, New Farm, Spring Hill, Wilston, Herston and parts of Bowen Hills, Grange, Kelvin Grove, Newmarket, Newstead, Teneriffe and Windsor.

These suburbs in our historic inner-north are very special to me and I know the quality of life and atmosphere of these “Villages” is very important to our local residents.

The amazing depth and breadth of experience, capacity, and knowledge concentrated in our small area tells me our suburbs in Central Ward are going to lead the way in getting things done here in Brisbane.
Every day you can feel the excitement, the expectation, the belief in Brisbane written on the faces of mums and dads, the old and the young, business people and artisans, the students and the stockbrokers as we all make our way around this great Ward.

Central Ward truly represents the area where Brisbane comes to Work – Rest – and Play.
