Brisbane's best assets are literally at your doorstep. Hawthorne is a very central, safe and family orientated suburb. If you are interested in historical Queensland style houses there is no shortage. It's fantastic to take an evening walk/ride to check out the surroundings. Movies, cafes, restaurants and gift stores galore are just outside your back gate.

This property would be perfect for visiting family in the area, renovating, in between properties, relocating or working in Brisbane.

The property is also very popular for parents/families visiting their children at Anglican Church Grammar School "Churchie" and Lourdes Hill College.

Our family business, Brisbaneshortstay, has 2 fantastic properties to offer you in the ever popular Inner City riverside village of Bulimba & Hawthorne plus another one close by in Camp Hill. Our properties are equipped with all the comforts that we love when we travel ourselves. We are very hands on property mangers and your enquiries will always be answered immediately or within in a few short hours.

If Hawthorne is booked out during your dates or you need more room, please check out her bigger sisters not too far away. Middle sister is a 3 Brm+ Queenslander called Chill Camp Hill (ID 150672) or there's big sister, another 3 Brm Queenslander called Bella Bulimba (ID 178218).


Hawthorne on the Park is located in the flat, leafy village of Hawthorne and staying here is all about the location.The rear gate of the property opens straight onto Hawthorne Park.

It has a fantastic walking/jogging/riding track, with various exercise equipment scattered throughout.

Directly across the park is the famous Hawthorne cinema's (movies are $8.50 per adult and $4.50 per child), The Hawthorne Garage - which is a trendy cafe/deli and Marinara Cafe and Restaurant - a divine Italian restaurant (bookings essential most nights). It is also home to Crust Pizza and a fab Thai restaurant.

150 meters from the back gate in the opposite direction you will find the most amazing shaded and fenced kids playground, more cafes and bottle shop.

Not to mention the Hawthorne Park night markets are here every second Friday night.

The cottage is also just down the road from Brisbane's famous Oxford St, Bulimba and all its fantastic restaurants, cafe's, movies and gift stores. They now have quite a few Paleo, Home-style and Raw food eateries to choose from as well as many other fantastic restaurants and little bars.

About Tracey Hurn

Hi there potential guests and possible hosts.

My husband (Richard) and I would love to host you at one of our properties "Chill Camp Hill", "Hawthorne on the Park" and "Bella Bulimba". We also host an executive apartment in New Farm "LUXE on Brunswick" for it's owner Bill. We have both lived in Brisbane for over 25 years and we love our city! Whats more, we also love our little corner of Brisbane, yes we live in Camp Hill (only 5 mins from Hawthorne and Bulimba). So if you need help with the where/what/why we are more than happy to point you in the right direction.

We love to socialise and eating out with friends or entertaining guests at home is what we do.

We also love to travel, however now that we are getting a little bit older we love the comforts of home. The 3 properties are decked out with all the important stuff... too many to list but a clean kitchen, aircon, dishwasher, comfy beds and outdoor entertaining area (especially in warm climates) are our must haves these days.

We are looking forward to meeting you all and hope that you enjoy your stay.

kind regards

Tracey and Richard

Excellent, the perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you need and is within easy walking distance of restaurants, cinemas, barbers, coffee shops and more. Quiet street with friendly neighbours backing on to a great park that our dog loved. Watch the football in the afternoon on the weekend and do some laps around the park to get the blood flowing in the mornings and afternoons during the week. Great.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at "Hawthorne on the Park" for 8 nights in November 2017.

It was the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long while. Fabulous cottage very homely , comfortable beds and a very well stocked kitchen with everything you could possible need. Along with this the area itself is amazing, easy walking distance to half a dozen restaurants and a very ritzy supermarket. Also walking distance to the ferry. Tracey was also incredibly helpful with information about the area and with any questions both prior to and during our stay.

We loved it and we will be back.

Thank you Tracey.

The house was very clean and well stocked with plates, utensils, etc. There are only 2 bedrooms, but our kids enjoyed sleeping in the lounge. Our dogs really enjoyed the back yard. Great value for money and fantastic location.
