I'm moving to Sth of Brisbane with my wife, any good areas to live in?
Every thing you want to know can be found HERE
Hope this helps.
Yeah, the northside. I live in Windsor, love it. But probably moving closer in soon, to The Valley. Windsor/Lutwyche area is great, very nice area, close to the city and has it's own shopping hub, which is very convenient.
It's also about ten minutes drive from the airport, might be good depending on how often you plan to fly outta Brisbane.
Yeah....Bondi Junction is Sth of Brisbane. I hear kiwis like it there.
A bit rough WW (but a good laugh).
Initial, forget Bondi Junction if you are looking at Brisbane - but, if Sydney attracts you, check it out....
Thanks for your advice people.
I was thinking about other Oz cities such as Melbourne & Sydney, but prefer the sunshine and the developments sth of Brisbane.
We have a couple of friends there.
You're talking a very large area and it would be dependant on what style of property you want, what your budget allows and your needs for transport etc.
I'd be considering Capalaba, Cleveland area first. Anything near the water is always going to good to live and provide growth. Then maybe Springwood area, loads of facilities and not too expensive. Mt Gravatt is another good area.
Personally I'd recommend the Northside of Brisbane....people are far more intelligent, classy and better looking on the northside...not sure why just the way it is I guess.
I also like the Redlands area (the shire that Capalaba & Cleveland fall into).
Personally I love Redland Bay and intend on moving there sometime in the future myself.
As Kevin mentioned, a lot will depend on your personal requirements like need for transport, schools etc.
Probably a good idea is to take some time looking at different areas you are considering and try to get a feel for the different areas.
Girls are better on southern side, but the best boys are on the northen ...
from my personal experience
Buying? Or renting? If the latter, I know a good landlord who has a rental coming free in a top area near Cleveland.... More East than South though.
If buying, good luck with it - lots of good areas to chose from (even on the South side) despite what others say.
I noticed a few people have mentioned Cleveland. Someone who's opinion I respect very highly suggested Cleveland was a nice area. For those of you with properties there, how has the area treated you CG wise? Are there pockets that do better than others? Are there areas you wouldn't buy?
hehehehehe...oh yeah!!!!!! i can do nothing but whole heatedly agree!!!
Yer a brave man, Kevin.
Come here and say that!!!
Seriously, though, Initial, it really depends on what type of property you're looking for. If you want 'inner city yuppieville' try Indooroopilly or the like. If you want outer suburbia 'little boxes on a hillside' try Springwood or Collingwood Park.
If you want a lovely 'family friendly' suburb, not too far out of town, but far enough, try somewhere around Salisbury or Mt Gravatt.
Capalaba and Cleveland are hugely different suburbs, one's quite 'working class' and the other's not (in that order).
Really need more information to make an informed suggestion.
The facts are undeniable.....isn't that so UC
Mind you we do have enough Kiwi's already, god bless 'em. Most of my staff are from the country where Man and sheep are friendly
Maybe you just answered your own question Kev (below)
Hmm - yeah, that could help the balance somewhat - no wonder the Northside rocks !! But there are still one or two of us on the Southside - so it's not all gloom and doom for that area - we do our best to bring that area up too
I didn't know there were any Australians left.
or is that plausibly deniable??!?! i guess it depends on which way we want to defend our northside honour...hehehe
God bless weasel words!!
We ALL know that the only reason the northsiders are better looking is that there is double the choice .... they all have two heads
Now, if you are really serious, you would be looking on the southside.....
I totally agree with you, wylie! And we south-siders are completely unbiased, of course.
OH THERE WE GO!!!!! the gloves are off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have but two words for you southsiders...
