Ashgrove is an inner suburb in the City of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. It is located approximately 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) north-west of the Brisbane CBD. Ashgrove is an upmarket, leafy residential suburb characterised by its hilly terrain and characteristic Ashgrovian houses built in the early 20th century. While many of the surrounding suburbs have seen an increase in the number of residential apartments built in the past decade, Ashgrove remains predominantly a suburb of detached single dwelling houses, with many old Queenslander homes in the area.
Ashgrove is serviced by multiple council buses running along Stewart and Waterworks Roads into the central business district. Ashgrove is also a stop on the route of the cross-town Great Circle Line (598/599) which links the four major shopping malls of Brisbane.
It also hosts the northern terminus of the route 61 Maroon CityGlider which is one of two high profile, frequent, and long span “CityGlider” services strongly promoted by the Brisbane City Council. This service provides a cross town function linking Ashgrove with Paddington boutiques and cafes, Suncorp stadium, Caxton Street food and pub precinct, King George Square in the City Centre, Southbank Parklands and cultural district, ‘The Gabba’, Woolloongabba dining and antique district and Stones Corner cafe strip and outlet shopping.
