    It really depends where in Logan. Anything around Logan Central / Woodridge / Kingston (or basically most suburbs next to the train line) I'd steer clear of. Anything around Springwood / Daisy Hill / Shailer Park / Cornubia / Tanah Merah is actually quite a nice area.

    Can i just add holland park is a nice area, it's right near the highway and quite close to the city without being inner city. Great public transport too. Bil and sil live there and love it

    Does he have access to free car parking at work? That will make a difference with transport options.

    I'll just add that if hubby is planning on catching public transport to work it would be worth looking at the suburbs along the train line and busway as both pass through 'the Gabba' (as we locals call it). The Park Road train station (in the Gabba) is serviced by a few train lines so there are quite a few options. The Gabba is quite a large suburb too so it might be best to see exactly where he is working so which station / stop he would get off at as this may sway whether to look at places along the busway or train line (and which train line).

    Just fyi we live near the motorway which makes getting into the city quite accessible and depending on the amount of peak hour traffic we can get in there well within an hour. Suburbs near us but close to the motorway include parkinson, drewvale, calamvale and stretton and they are all very nice, these are classed as south brisbane though. If you can get into somewhere in stretton, stretton college is a great school, but you need to live in the catchment.

    I'm so sick of the southside/logan stereotypes. ������
    Again --- very hormonal and oversensitive right now!! ������

    I said most suburbs in Logan not every suburb in Logan.

    ETA Just disregard what I said. I didn't mean to cause offence. I shouldn't be posting anything on here today in the frame of mind I am in - I need some unpleasant medical tests done next week - could be nothing, could be something very serious and I am scared out of my brain.

    If you didn't use the tunnel and went say the storey bridge or freeway expect delays in and around fortitude valley and the city.

    Bayside suburbs can be nice, but are a long way out.

    I pretty much agree with everything babyno1onboard has said in her post, except I personally wouldn't really recommend Salisbury or Moorooka.
    Yes Moorooka and Salisbury were two I was thinking have some dodgy parts to them! Considering their proximity to everything they are very well priced so thought I should include them in the list. Not sure of the OP's budget. I used to live in Moorooka (not offended!) and there are nice parts (to the East) and not so nice parts (to the West). Just hope I'm now not offending anyone living in eastern Moorooka 😂

    I do agree it is very well located though and being close to the freeway makes getting into the city a breeze.
    Ummm that's exactly where I lived! You didn't happen to live on a semi-circle shaped street did you...? Haha. It was a bit dodgy. The nice part of Moorooka I thought was a bit north of there. It was called something Hill, I can't remember.

    Whellers Hill?
