    Default Moving to Brisbane

    Hi I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    My DH and I are seriously considering moving to Brisbane next year, his employer have offices in the city so he'll be able to transfer there. We want to take a trip to Brisbane soon to check it out but we are unsure of what areas to visit. I really would like a house near the beach and no more than an hours commute by car/train for my DH. Are there any nice areas we can look at? We have a 17 month old DS and we are pregnant with our second so I would like to live in a child friendly area iykwim. Thanks

    Maybe around Manly? I haven't lived there but have friends who do, it's really nice.

    You wouldn't be near the beach as such but bayside is lovely. The Redland Bay area is quite nice and there are a fair few young families there. Only other coastal option would be north side of Brisbane. Unless you live at the Gold Coast and your husband commutes from there (not really recommended - traffic to the city at peak hour is disgraceful!)

    Agree about Manly.. It's not that far from city but close to water. We live near there and it's a nice area with lots of family orientated things. The Bayside area is more recreational water sports orientated but there are some areas to swim, also just jump on the Ferry at Cleveland to go across to Straddy Island for a break. There is Carindale Shopping centre nearby which is one of Brissie's largest and not far from gateway motorway which makes it super easy to head to airport or up to Sunny Coast or down the Gold Coast or into city! It's very central! You could also try Birkdale, Wellington Point, Ormiston, Cleveland , Raby Bay or Victoria Point.
