Bardon, a residential suburb of Brisbane, lies 6 km west of central Brisbane and adjoins the foothills of the Mount Coot-tha Park. It includes the localities of Jubilee and Rainworth which, when they were tram destinations, were regarded as separate suburbs.

Bardon lies across the Ithaca Creek which rises at Mount Coot-tha and runs generally north-east, forming the north boundary of Jubilee, and joins the Enoggera Creek.
