"Lovely green forest suburb"

Have lived in DAISY HILL for nearly 20 years. When we arrived, we were wanting a suburb safe for our young children and green (being a Vet Nurse, I don't like suburbs where you can hear your neighbour, no greenery or full of concrete units. It is a typical family suburb, with house prices and land sizes to suit all sorts of financial limits. It's history dates back to the mid to late 1800's where the Dennis Family gave it its name because their daughter apparently loved the "daisies" growing up on the "hill" hence the name. Alot of the land is protected by the Conservation Park where The Daisy Hill Forest/Koala Centre is located, which is a very popular place if you prefer nature parks over expensive theme parks. It's boasts the most nature loving forest full of eucalypt gums with picnic areas spread everywhere, public toilets, BBQ areas, huge grass areas shaded by trees for a game of cricket, football or just pull a blanket out and fall asleep. But don't complain if you get regular visits from the Kangaroos or kookaburras while walking as its their main home. The main attraction is the Koala Centre which is a lovely education centre for the public to learn and oogle at the adult and baby koalas. Or if your enthusiastic, take one of the forest walks or bike trails.

There is a good choice of public and private schools, numerous DayCare Centres and preschools, a nice handful of small shopping areas and privately owned shops, trees, trees and more trees, lots of parks catering for children and adults and one of southside's larger shopping precincts only 4km away with just under 200 shops and endless "FREE" parking. Lots of Doctors, Dentists, Physios etc with the Logan Hospital only 5-7km away. There are small eating areas popping up everywhere, with Christopher's having the better name. But a lot of the main eating areas are now located at the new outdoor eating area of The Hyperdome Shopping Precinct, which now has a lovely outdoor area full of restaurants, various cuisines, waterfalls, huge bowling alley, cinemas and loads of undercover parking. The Pacific Highway runs adjacent to Daisy Hill, giving you perfect access to either Brisbane CBD and the Sunshine Coast Northside, or the Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales South of Daisy Hill.

My children are young adults now, but still choose to live in Daisy Hill due to the convenience of having a green suburb with everything at your fingertips.
Pros
  • Daisy Hill Forest
  • friendly
  • green and clean
  • only 1 hour to the gold coast beaches
  • Best Child Care facility (Good Start Daisy Hill)
  • Best Schools (John Paul College and St Edward School)

TanyaC We've just moved to Daisy Hill and we think it's fabulous. Everything you say Barbara. BTW what is the nearest children's ER to here?
Jan 23, 2015
BarbaraV
BarbaraV Hey Tanya, glad you've enjoyed the move to Daisy Hill, we love it here. There is the Logan Hospital on the other side of the freeway, but the main Children's Hosp with Emergency is in Brisbane CBD about 25 mins away. Most locals say if you can handle the drive medically wise, then pick Cilento over Logan. Below is a link to their website which is a drive straight up the freeway into the city. Good luck

"Daisy hill is one of the best suburb in South Brisbane"

Nice and quiet place to live, family retreat, relaxation and safe environment, education standard is also great (John Paul College, and St Edward School) both catholic school with great ethics for kids to be a right person, human and a successful life style. I just moved in few months ago, and feel like never before. It is close to main motorway, Brisbane (for work) 12 minute off peak (25 minute peak), To Gold Coast 30 Minute, Movie world and Dream World just 20 minute. Such a convenient location, also for shopping just few minutes to Hyperdome Shopping center, for kids and recreation it has Koala Park and wood fire BBQ facility.
Pros
  • Best Schools (John Paul College and St Edward School)
  • Best Child Care facility (Good Start Daisy Hill)
  • convenient to travel to Brisbane CBD and/or Gold Coast
  • friendly
  • green and clean
  • only 1 hour to the gold coast beaches

"Best suburb in Brisbane"

In 27 years of living in Brisbane, I've lived in various surburbs (Spring Hill, West End, Paddington, Gordon Park, Chermside, Sandgate, Norman Park, Morningside, Wynnum, Yeronga, Fairfield, Greenslopes). Daisy Hill has been by far the best place to live. Close to all amenities and people here are so friendly and polite.

"A great place to live for families"

Daisy Hill has every thing that you could need.
A Major shopping complex 5 minutes down the road.
Small friendly shopping precincts throughout the suburb that can provide everything a family needs.
The people are friendly and say hello as you go passed them when out walking in the morning.
Public Transport is good and access to the M1 is a stones through away without being too close.
There are Child Care Centers within easy reach along with Primary schools and a well renowned Secondary School.

Syd_to_Bris Hi. Where is the nearest train station to the city from Daisy Hill?
Dec 09, 2013
NirajkumarPatel
NirajkumarPatel There is no train station in Daisyhill, you need to catch Loganlea if you wish to catch train, and in entire QLD Rail Transport is not well developed like Melbourne or Sydney. Hence Bus transport is the only option for convenience. Check the link below for guideline.
