Red Hill

Red Hill, a residential suburb, is 3.5 km north-west of central Brisbane. It includes the locality of Ithaca, a separate suburb until 1975. Red Hill was named as a description of the place; in parts the slopes approach 45 degrees, and the red colour of the subsoil was evident as soon as cuttings were dug to ease the gradients of tracks. St Brigid's Catholic church occupies a prominent site.
