The ward of Tennyson includes Chelmer, Fairfield, Graceville, Sherwood, Tennyson, Yeerongpilly, Yeronga, Corinda and parts of Oxley and Annerley.
Tennyson is naturally shaped by the Brisbane River and its tributaries to the north and west and major arterial roads to the east and south.
It is one of the most beautiful and historic parts of Brisbane, home to two of Australia’s oldest memorial parks at Graceville and Yeronga and has significant tracks of bushland including the Oxley Common and the Sherwood Arboretum.
Whether in Corinda, Graceville or Annerley, the ward includes some of Brisbane’s most gracious turn of the century and post war homes. Its architecture and picturesque streetscapes make it one of the most iconic parts of our great city.
It is also an area undergoing significant change as the result of new major sporting and residential developments like the Tennis Centre at Tennyson.
There are approximately 17,000 households and 27,000 people enrolled to vote in the Tennyson Ward.
