Our family moves from Sydney to Brisbane in September, and my husband will be working in the Port of Brisbane — so we narrowed it down to Wakerley and Carindale as two areas to target because of their good local public schools and pretty equidistant commutes to his work 20 minutes as opposed to an hour 15 in sydney, we are very excited!
Carindale looks very pretty but the high prices of property is a bit worrying.
We did consider Manly too, but it looks like finding a rental in the catchment for Manly SS could prove difficult, also more expensive. Yes, exciting for sure.
Brisbane is different to Sydney and I hope you get to love it here as much as I do. Plenty of restaurants in Cleveland as well. Hi Bob, Like most people I have found this website great. I am a Primary teacher and will be needing to find a permanent position. I will be contacting the Queensland DET office for information about work. My questions are; Are there any areas that you would avoid due to safety and crime?
What areas would you recommend for a single person in their mid 20s? I would look for the work first and then plan accommodation from there. Your dog could be an issue.
Otherwise, in your favour is an apartment glut in Brisbane. Example — in Kangaroo Point you could rent a fully furnished penthouse with truly premium river views in a complex with pool, bbq area, tennis court and gym, with off street secure parking for under you weekly budget.

I quite like Sandgate, which is on the coast, it has a few bars and restaurants around and a good community feel.

New Farm is very much where the young and trendy hangout. Cleveland is a cul de sac at the end of a train line. It is fairly modern I thought, but not well planned for pedestrians — e. North Stradbroke, Russell, Macleay and Coochiemudlo. You mentioned public transport. There are various buses there and a train which takes about an hour to the central city stations. The train station is not that well placed and could impact on commuting, unless you live close, and then you would have to place yourself somewhere midway between the local shopping strip and station to avoid long walks.
