Start registering for childcare now, we've had our name down for over a year ( only have a 10month old) and still no luck.
Holland Park SS is very good

I cant help with inner city suburbs. I cant handle living in the hustle and bustle so we live out in the sticks

OP, also thought maybe check out Yeronga/Yeerongpilly. There are some beautiful homes around there and not too far out of the city. The train line services those areas. Also if you like Tennis, you'll be within walking distance to the tennis centre

Agree about beautiful homes around Yeronga, Yeerongpilly and nearby Fairfield. There's lots of green space and an awesome newish playground for kids right near the tennis centre. Just be sure to take a good look at the flood maps for that area if you do get serious about property there.
Same could be said for parts of Paddington and Rosalie, New Farm/Teneriffe, and similarly for West End where we live.
Not to be alarmist but it was a bit of a mess after the floods in 2011 and this will no doubt affect ability to get a bank loan and house insurance pricing. Of course, the likelihood of something like that happening again is slim...but they said it would never happen again after the 1974 floods and Wivenhoe Dam was built...and we know how that ended. I guess a lot of people don't think about it unless they were personally effected but it's still something we think about frequently as our apartment complex was flooded, which caused mayhem and stress for months afterwards. And we got off lightly compared to many places...

Hi all, just wanted to update, we did travel up to Brissy (& will most likely again next wknd to look at some houses) & have decided on the Fig Tree Pocket/Kenmore area. With the current time line looks like we will be up there in 8 - 12 weeks! Just wondering if anyone can recommend where I can start to do some research on playgroups, kids/baby activities or Mums Groups? Thanks!
