Brisbane is a great place to raise your family. Investing in a property within one of the city’s great suburbs is the perfect place to start. Here are some of the locations to consider when looking for a new house:


The “North Sydney” of Brisbane, better known as Toowong, is a thriving location where high quality commercial and residential areas are combined. Any professional and businessman will be able to take advantage of owning a property here due to how near the Brisbane CBD is from their house. They can easily drive from the office or workplace to their house in the shortest possible time. This suburb also has much of the university student population, which keeps the shopping and commercial area thriving.


Taringa has more residential areas than commercial buildings. Owning a house here is perfect for you or your teenagers if they are students at the University of Queensland. The university is very close to Taringa, which makes it perfect for anyone who studies or works at the university. The suburb is home to the Taringa Rovers soccer team, which makes the suburb desirable for their fans and anyone interested in soccer.


Paddington is where the old and the new come together in a harmonious blend. This is due in part to the dominant “workers cottage” house design which is the usual Queenslander style. This part of Brisbane is where a large number of foreigners are currently residing as compared to other suburbs. Paddington is also close to Brisbane CBD, which makes it appealing for anyone looking for a home nearby after a day at the office in the city. Those who regard shopping as an adventure will enjoy the many interesting shops in Paddington. It’s not just about finding a sale, but finding the unusual and uncommon things when you visit the many boutiques here.
