South Brisbane and South Bank

Take time to notice our history

I must pass St Andrew’s Anglican Church in South Brisbane at least once per day. But it was only when we were standing outside the Allegro Apartments on Cordelia Street that I noticed how impressive this enormous church really is. Like a lot of South Brisbane real estate agents I guess I’m focused on homes and apartments, but I’d suggest there’s no more impressive piece of local architecture than this.

St Andrew’s was built in 1883 (plus a couple of additions since) and when you compare it to the tiny South Brisbane houses of that era you get some understanding of the importance the church had in society.
