Windsor is an inner northern suburb of Brisbane. It is largely residential, featuring many old Queenslanders, although there is also considerable retail commercial activity, primarily concentrated along Lutwyche and Newmarket Roads.
Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman is a resident of the suburb.
Prior to December 1968 the suburb was served by frequent Brisbane City Council tram services along Lutwyche Road, with routes converging from Chermside, Kalinga (until 1962), Stafford, and Grange the latter tram line branching off Lutwyche Road at Maygar street, on the border of Lutwyche and Windsor. These services combined to provide the suburb with an off-peak service of a tram every 2½ minutes along Lutwyche Road in the late 1950s.
Two former tramway electrical substations remain features of Lutwyche Road, near Albion Road. One of these now houses the heritage collection of the Queensland Electrical Engineers Association.
The southern part of Windsor in and around Swan Terrace was known as "Swan Hill" and was named after an early landowner.
Downey Park, the so-called "home of women's sport in Brisbane" is located in Windsor.
The 1974 floods affected the suburb. Various streets close to Breakfast Creek were affected.
The North-South Bypass Tunnel will emerge close to Campbell Street, Bowen Hills. Several businesses along Lutwyche Road in Windsor have been resumed as part of this process and as part of the inner-northern busway project. Several of these businesses have protested the City Council's moves.
Windsor is an Australian town in the state of New South Wales, situated on the Hawkesbury River, and located in the north-western outskirts of the present-day Sydney metropolitan area. The current population is 1864 (Census 2001).
Windsor is the third-oldest place of British settlement on the Australian continent. Settlement at the location was first established about 1791, near the head of navigation on the Hawkesbury River (known as Deerubbin in Dharuk) and taking advantage of the fertile river flats for agriculture. The area was originally called Green Hills, but renamed Windsor (after Windsor in England). The town was officially proclaimed in a Government and General Order issued from Government House, Sydney, dated 15 December 1810, Governor Lachlan Macquarie having "marked out the district of Green Hills", which he called Windsor, after Windsor-on-the-Thames. Whilst in Windsor, Macquarie ordered the main institutions of organised settlement to be erected, such as a church, a school-house, a gaol and a "commodious inn". Of these new buildings, the most imposing was Francis Greenway's Saint Matthew's Anglican Church, of which Macquarie himself chose the site. In 1813 a report was given to Governor Macquarie from Earl Bathurst detailing a proposed invasion of the Hawkesbury River by France. This planned invasion that did not eventuate, targeted the Windsor grainary in order to cut off supply to Sydney, showing the relative importance of this new settlement on a global scale.
Windsor is about 60 kilometres north-west of Sydney, and the location was chosen because of the agricultural potential of the area, and because the location was accessible by coastal shipping from Sydney. It was known as the "bread basket", ensuring the survival of the starving colony. The extensive agriculture caused major silting in the Hawkesbury River, by the 1890s the river had become so blocked with silt, ships could not travel up to Windsor from the coast. By then the railway, in 1864, and the road, in 1814, had been built.
Many of the oldest surviving European buildings in Australia are located at Windsor.
