Suburb Overview

Bardon is an inner suburb of Brisbane, Australia approximately 5 km west of the Brisbane CBD. Bardon is a leafy residential suburb, much of which nestles into the foothills of Mount Coot-tha.

The suburb of Bardon was originally known as 'Upper Paddington', until it was renamed by the Ithaca Town Council in 1925 after 'Bardon', the villa built by Joshua Jeays in 1863 and named for Bardon Hill in his native Leicestershire, England. The house now forms part of the campus of St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, The Drive, Bardon.

The suburb is characterised by stand-alone houses on separate lots, which make up 89% of the housing stock in Bardon.

Bardon is located in the foothills on the eastern side of Mount Coot-tha, and is characterised by ridges separated by steep gullies. Some major streets generally follow the ridgelines, including Simpsons Road and Macgregor Terrace. The side streets connecting to these ridge-line roads are among Brisbane's steepest. Ithaca Creek, a tributary of Enoggera Creek, drains the eastern side of Mount Coot-tha and flows through the suburb in a generally north-easterly direction.

Bardon is a generally affluent suburb, with 2006 census statistics indicating a median weekly household income of $1,671, compared with a national average of $1,027. Over 40% of the labour force in Bardon consists of professionals, more than double the national average, while the proportion of labourers is less than half the national average. The unemployment rate at the last census was 2.8%.

20.7% of the population was born overseas, with the most common foreign birthplaces being England, New Zealand and South Africa. Over nine in ten residents of Bardon spoke only English at home. 0.4% of the population reported being of indigenous origin.

The median age is 35, two years younger than the national average.

Adjoining Bardon is Government House, Queensland, the official residence of the Governor of Queensland in the suburb of Paddington.

The suburb is home to the Wests Panthers rugby league club, Wests Juniors Leagues Club and Brisbane Irish Rugby Football Club. These sports teams are located in Purtell Park where home matches are played. Club facilities are undergoing refurbishment as of 2007.

Bowman Park in Bardon is home to the Bardon Latrobe Junior Soccer Club, one of the oldest football clubs in Brisbane, and the West Brisbane Cricket Club. The park, formerly known as the 'Cobbler's Flats', was named after prominent Queensland Labor politician, David Bowman, as were the adjacent David Street and Bowman Parade.
