"Convenient to the city, lots of local things to do and green!"

There are 3 schools within a few minutes walk and they often have fetes or community things on. Since Sandgate Road was diverted from Nundah it's got a very nice community feel. Having breakfast down on the Sandgate Road part of Nundah Village is one of my favourite things to do on the weekend.

When I sit on my balcony I see a sea of green from the trees around me. There is a mix of units, new houses, old Queenslanders that have been done up, new apartment buildings so there's a mix of people who live in Westacott St. Families, couples without kids, students, retirees, single people. You don't need a car because it's so close to Nundah and Toombul train stations, and it's close to buses at Toombul.

I like living here.

"A great street!"

I’ve lived in Nundah for 10 years including 3 years in Westacott St. Previous reviews don’t do Westacott St justice. It’s a quiet street with the normal amount of local traffic flowing through. People living here are nice and respectful of others living close by. It’s a 3-4 minute walk to Toombul train station and a 5 minute walk to Toombul bus station. I work in the city and it’s an extremely convenient trip, less than 15 minutes to Central station with trains leaving every 3-5 minutes during peak hour. My commute to work from my front door to my desk is less than 30 minutes. I’ve never experienced crime while living here.

Toombul shopping centre is a 5 minute walk and Nundah Village is a 5 minute walk also. The new development Circa Nundah is going to bring more eating and retail options within walking distance to the area as well. Kedron Brook is less than a 5 minute walk and is a fantastic place to exercise or run through. There’s a fantastic big playground and bbq area and is great for families or anyone wanting to enjoy Brisbane’s fantastic outdoor lifestyle

It’s an established street in an established neighbourhood with numerous bike, running/ walking paths and plenty of open space for everyone.

Very close and convenient to the airport and DFO stores. In a matter of minutes you’re on the Gateway on your way to the Gold or Sunshine Coasts.

Nundah and the “old Toombul” is a great suburb which has gone through real estate and lifestyle booms and due to it’s location and amenities, will continue to boom and become one of Brisbane’s best suburbs. I’m holding on to my property!

"Suburban, high crime, unfriendly"

I have lived in Westacott St for about 6yrs, and Nundah for over 11yrs. It's a very high crime area and fairly unsafe for people to walk around late at night. The local pubs are a haven for violence and there is a lack of community spirit. Neighbours often do not help each other out and many houses on this street have excessive noise at night that is heard from far away. The street itself is mostly quiet during the day, with little traffic. However it is quite common for people to walk past yelling and I have witnessed many incidents of domestic abuse of people walking by. Older buildings are quite delapidated, but old and new are extremely excessive in rent prices. People walk their dogs on this street without a leash, and there have been multiple incidents of the dogs trying to attack cats in the cats' own yards. At night there is a great deal of possum activity, aswell as loud bats at certain times of year. Westacott St also has a huge amount of blackouts and brownouts, I recall over 9 in a 12mth period alone. The council does not trim footpath trees enough and often you have to duck when walking along the footpath. There is a lovely park near Westacott St that has been upgraded with picnic and child facilities, including a natural habitat area with ducks, fish, eels and many birds. The park also has an offleash dog park, nice cycling path and large oval for sports. A lovely park during the day but not safe for women at night. A primary school is a 5 minute walk away so very handy to those who have children. There are 2 shopping centres within 15 minute walking distance, but no cinema. The public transport is excellent with 2 train stations and multiple buses only a 15 minute walk down the street. At the same distance, is the main area of Nundah precinct, lined with many cosy cafes and coffee shops. Very convenient for catching up for lunch with friends and quite a nice area during the day. Nundah also has Sunday morning markets with wonderful fresh fruit and trinkets. Overall Westacott St is very convenient to all amenities, and set back from the traffic gridlock which is encountered in the main precinct of Nundah during peak hour and Thursday nights.
