View Full Version : Where to live in North Brisbane?
Hi. I will soon be moving to Brisbane and have no idea about where to live! I have narrowed my search down to the suburbs of north brisbane (anything around Apsley, Bracken Ridge, Eatons Hill....that sort of distance from Brisbane anyhow) - there are a few reasons for picking this area i.e. transport, close to Brisbane and Sunshine Coast etc. - I'm seeking advice because I have a little boy who will start school next year. I'm interested to hear from parents who are very impressed with their local state school and live in a suburb great for young families (I have a 5 year old, 2 year old and another on the way!). Is there anyone out there that can help? Thanks.
I grew up in Bald Hills and Bracken Ridge, and went to school in Bald Hills and Aspley. I love the area - I live at Strathpine now, and I can't imagine moving away!
I know schools have probably changed since I was there (I'm 26 now) but Bald Hills Primary and Norris Rd State School (Bracken Ridge) were great, as was Aspley State High. But there are gazillions of schools in the area, so I'm sure you could find something to suit.
Bracken Ridge is really growing, heaps of new housing going in, and the new Woolies is great! Public transport is good - its the start of the line for the bus network into town, and the train is pretty close at Bald Hills and Carseldine.
Good luck with making your decision - moving is such an exciting thing (to me anyway, i just love it!)
Eatons Hill, Aspley, McDowall and Albany Creek are all great suburbs for young families. I don't have any personal experience with the state schools, but from what I have heard, from friends and neighbours, the schools are fine. My son goes to a daycare centre at Albany Creek and it is great.
nicibas how are you going with your search?
I'll be moving somewhere around Brisbane too and I'm really interested in hearing everyone's thoughts.
Yup, I would say ALbany Creek and Eatons Hill are the best bet out that way for family areas.
We're in Bridgeman Downs and love these northside areas. If you take a look at a map of Albany Creek, it has a hospital, schools & a cemetry so you can be born, live and die there! *lol*
All fantastic suburbs!! Couldn't think of any better suburbs to live in.
I grew up in Aspley and loved it.
We have to live down south now, but I would love to move back up!!
You luck ducky!!! ;)
