Hamilton is also 7kms away from the Brisbane Airport for domestic and international flights and right between the Gateway Motorway and the Inner City Bypass for added convenience.

The Queensland Government has recently announced this month that the new road infrastructure, that will be utilised to support the Brisbane 2032 Olympics Athletes’ Village at Northshore Hamilton, has been completed and is open for the public to use. This project includes new roads, cycleways, subtropical urban landscaping and new spaces for events, performances and various other opportunities. The new land supply is expected to generate over $500 million of private sector investment and support over 1 600 construction jobs.
