When advising clients where to relocate after selling their property we know that different types of buyers have different needs and criteria to fulfil when looking for a new home. Keep in mind growing families will be typically looking for decent sized backyards for the kids to run around in, good amenities such as access to shops, health care, public transport, parks, childcare and schools, as well as affordability.

Research by RP Data shortlisted the top 100 Australian suburbs for family living based on median house prices, block sizes, average number of bedrooms, surveys regarding what families value most, proximity to amenities and historical capital gains.

To develop our list of the top family friendly suburbs in Australia we have qualified a suburb as ‘family-friendly’ based on RP Data’s research, our Suburb Reviews and the latest suburb profile reports from Your Investment Property.

Here are some of the best family-friendly areas in your capital city to recommend your clients consider.
