Indooroopilly, St Lucia and Taringa
Of all of Brisbane, the inner west is perhaps the greenest. Its myriad parks and open spaces, dotted with gums, are a haven for the flashing rainbow parakeets, cockatoos, and all manner of wildlife down to the cheeky scrub turkeys often seen strolling the streets. In October the view from the many hilltops presents a purple haze thrown from hundreds of jacarandas.
