Everyone’s got their own opinion on what makes up the top suburbs in Brisbane.

Perhaps it’s simply the least expensive suburb to buy a flat in Brisbane today!

So if you’re new to Brisbane, what are the greatest suburbs in Brisbane which stand out to you? Areas you’d really like to live in? Let’s create a list of where to live.

Everyone’s got differing tastes – be it the CBD or Wynnum… what makes up Brisbane’s best suburb and why?


  1. I agree with Tony! The Southern Moreton Bay Islands are pretty sweet if you’re into nature and getting away from all the hustle and bustle :)

  2. The southern moreton bay islands (SMBI) … Russell, Macleay, Lamb & Karragarra Islands. Only 20 min by water taxi from Redland bay. A step back in time in a positive way, and affordable living. Great combination

  3. Paddington, Brisbane, great atmosphere, love the craft and antique shops. Love the local characters. Spoilt for coffee shops and absolutely convenient to live here.

  4. West End – diverse, friendly, strange, interesting, old, new, excellent food and music, on the river, close to the City.
