If money was no object, which Brisbane suburb would you live in?


If we’re indulging a little fantasy, which suburb would you live in if money was no object? What draws you towards a certain suburb?


  1. I currently live in my favourite suburb- New Farm. It offers all the social/cultural amenities that I enjoy; in addition to close proximity to the CBD and the Valley

  2. Brighton! Love the water, the long rides on bikes along the foreshore from Brighton, through Sandgate to Shorncliffe. The amazing parks and wildlife corridors. Kitesurfing, picnics, outrigging. A great place to live…

  3. Hendra, a genteel, dignified suburb with wide streets, no pretention, a gorgeous local school and the occasional clip clop of a horse being exercised through the local streets. House prices are good, we are spoilt with three great coffee shops and only a few minutes drive to the airport and the city.

  4. Shorncliffe – I’d love a Queenslander there. It’s a beautiful bayside suburb with leafy streets and Cabbage Tree creek for watersports. Also, it’s at the end of the train line (yet only 30mins from Central) so you’re guaranteed a seat in the morning!

  5. Norman park close to all types of public transport, close to the city , lovely homes & atmosphere , powerhouse a ferry trip away. Bulimba coffee shops and cinemas a short drive.

  6. Nundah, its just an amazing suburb, close to the city, but not too close, local shops, local pubs, local markets!
    Its a shame about all the development though, i think there needs to be more laws in place to ensure tha greedy developers stop ruining Brisbanes suburbia!!

  7. Sandgate/Brighton. I used to live up that way 20 years ago and it was smelly, neglected and had nothing going for it. Recently I visited friends who have built a lovely house at Brighton and was so impressed with how much work has gone into the area. The water is clean and blue, the foreshore tidied up and welcoming, and pretty much every house in the area looks as neat as a pin. It’s good to see some pride in an area.
