About Kenmore Hills

Kenmore Hills is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Kenmore Hills had a population of 2,402 people.

Kenmore Hills is 13.0 kilometres (8.1 mi) by road by the Brisbane GPO.

Although the northern part of the suburb is on the foothills of Mount Coot-tha, there is only one named peak in the suburb: Carver Hill in the south-east (27°30′02″S 152°55′51″E / 27.5005°S 152.9308°E / -27.5005; 152.9308 (Carver Hill)) at 70 metres (230 ft) above sea level.

Kenmore Hills originally formed part of Brookfield, but in 1969 the name was changed to Kenmore Hills, based on the neighbouring suburb of Kenmore.

In 1932 Father Robert Bartlett Bates, the rector of All Saints Anglican Church at Wickham Terrace purchased a house at 139 Brookfield Road (27°30′01″S 152°55′52″E / 27.5004°S 152.9310°E / -27.5004; 152.9310 (Old Friary)) to establish St John's Home for Aged Men, which subsequently relocated to West Toowong (where it continues to operate as St John's Residential Aged Care Home). On 12 May 1934, the Anglican Church opened St Christopher's Lodge, a home for boys. It was officially opened by James Francis Maxwell, the Member of the Queensland Legislative Assembly for Toowong. It was a farm school which operated until circa 1959. Around this timem 18 acres (7.3 ha) of the site was sold to the Presbyterian Church (now the Uniting Church in Australia) to develop an aged care centre. It was subsequently used a friary used by the Society of Saint Francis, a centre for contemplative spirituality and other community purposes. It is listed on the Brisbane Heritage Register. In 2019, the site was sold by the Anglican Church to the Uniting Church on the condition that community could continue to use the site.

In the 2011 census, Kenmore Hills had a population of 2,577 people, 53.2% female and 46.8% male. The median age of the Kenmore Hills population was 44 years of age, 7 years above the Australian median. 60.5% of people living in Kenmore Hills were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 69.8%; the next most common countries of birth were England 7.5%, South Africa 4.2%, New Zealand 3%, India 2.4%, Scotland 1.3%. 81.3% of people spoke only English at home; the next most common languages were 1.9% Mandarin, 1.1% German, 1% Cantonese, 0.9% Telugu, 0.8% Afrikaans.
