Kevin says: Toowong is beautifully situated on the north bank of the Brisbane river, it is serviced by transport by ferry, bus, train and a lovely walk along Coronation Drive to the city. Toowong is snuggled nicely at the foot of Mt Cootha in the west, the river and the city. Toowong has a friendly mix of youth, multicultural residents and the elderly.
