The College is located in suburban Ashgrove, some seven kilometres from the centre of Brisbane. It is leafy and expansive, with buildings and facilities nestled amongst acres of bushland.
The 23-hectare campus is characterised by a sense of history combined with a clear focus on the future. From the stately Tower Block (circa 1930) which still stands today as an Ashgrove icon, to the $11m Performing and Visual Arts Complex, the campus provides the best of both worlds.
