    Have a look at somewhere like Kenmore which is a Western Suburb and has lots of opportunity.

    Hi Freddy,

    I own a nice IP in Northlakes Estate, Mango Hill (about 20 mins out of Brisbane). New Schools, new Westfields, nice parks, recreation centre, lakes and bike tracks. It’s very neat, well planned and lanscaped. It is also close to Moreton Bay.

    I highly recommend it.

    I will recommend to check Wynnum, Thorneside, Birkdale, Ormiston and Cleveland. All are bayside suburbs, further from city than 10 km but on trainline with good public schools and great lifestyle. You can get good quality houses for 400K even with walking distance to water.

    I have always been a fan of Everton Hills or alternately the Samford Valley. There’s nothing like acreage so close to the CBD…

    If your only needs are public schools and public transport, then get a map out and trace the train lines (queensland rail) and bus routes (brisbane city council) out 10 km.

    You could also ask your employer and new fellow staff for their recommendations… presumably you want somewhere convenient to work.

    If you want a bigger yard, use the sq metre limiter in realestate.com.au , in addition to your price limit.

    Be informed that the north side of Bris was settled much earlier than most of the south, and is therefore older in layout and architecture. In general, the west side is a higher socioeconomic class, the north, south, and east mainly middle with patches of upper. If academic performance is anything to gauge what a good public school is, then have a squiz at this table of metro schools and academic success:
    http://www.tekserv.com.au/bruce/QldSchoolsMetro.xls

    The top 20 state schools are highlighted in yellow. Note that 75% of them are on the northside of the Brisbane River.

    Have a look at this thread at that great property forum Somersoft….and compare with the responses above….
