About Herston

Get directions

Herston is 3km from Brisbane CBD. Sir Robert Herbert, Queensland’s first premier, built a farm in the area and lived in the farmhouse with his then Attorney-General, John Bramston. The pair named their house Herston, a combination of their surnames, which eventually became the name of the suburb. The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital is located here and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research shares its campus.
