Located about 3 km from Brisbane’s central business district (CBD), Wilston comprises old- and new-style homes, including workers’ cottages and modern-style homes on Wilston Hill. This Brisbane residential suburb was named after Wilston House, a house built circa 1876 by the Honourable William Wilston MC. The revamping of Kedron Brook Road resulted in the transformation of Wilston into a popular suburb.
