"It has everything!"

We’ve lived here for 15 years now and absolutely love it,
It’s superb for kids of all ages, great state school and 3 excellent primary schools.
Virtually no crime at all, we thoroughly enjoy life here.

"I would Not buy a house here again"

We bought a house here back in 2018 and I wouldn't buy anything here again.
Yes, my review is biased because I work in the CBD. No train station with 5-6 kms. The nearest stations are Carseldine, Straphpine and Enoggera, so commute to the CBD is a nightmare if you rely on the routes 357 and 359. If you dont believe me, check with Google maps and/or Translink app. Driving to the station also won't help you at all, you will spend same 30 minutes to Enoggera station as Old Nothern Rd is pretty busy every morning.
Some of my coallegues live twice further but spend slightly less time to get to the office. Nearly forgot to mention, if you miss 6pm 359 to Albany Creek you are stuck in the CBD for an hour because the next bus only at 7 pm.
Please also keep in mind that AC is within Moreton Bay Regional Council, we also have Caboulture, Deception Bay, Lawton and so on within the council borders. If you think there is no difference between Brisbane City and Moreton Bay Council's, unfortunately, there is a lot small ones. As a first example, forget about yearly white waste kerb collection, so you have to get your stuff to the dump site by yourself or hire someone. For me, it is annoying and I miss Brisbane City Council where I took it as granted.
To be fair it is slightly cheaper than the nearest BCC suburb McDowell.
Albany Hills, Albany Creek primary schools are not that bad and definately better than average but, again, McDowell or Aspley schools are better.
My personal opinion, Albany Creek is not awful but there is nothing good about this suburb taking into account the house prices. I would look elsewhere.
P.s. I cannot give 2.5 star rating, so I have given 3, so please note it is 0.5 star overrated in my review.

"Family Friendly Area"

Really peaceful and family friendly area. Love that it's only 20min to the city. We have beautiful playgrounds and the national park on our door step. Best for families looking for space and a great outdoor lifestyle yet close enough for the commute to work.

The suburb gives you that Quiet, Safe and Clean feel for your family to live happily.

"Central to everything and not to close to a railway"

Having lived in the Albany Creek area for 16 years and had our children grow up in the area we would find it hard to move to anywhere else. There are all the local type shops that are necessary but not the impersonal hype of the city or other central locales. Being anywhere in 10 minutes is a great bonus, as you can go to larger shopping centers and then leave the hustle and bustle behind. Our street is filled with caring neighbors in a wide range of ages, which is great for family living. We have a total of 5 primary schools within 2 minutes of us, both private and public and the High school is 1 minute away. Our older children went through the local high school and are both have successfully entered their desired University course. With golf courses, parks, the leisure center and a huge sporting center all within 5 minutes there is not much missing. Nightlife is not abundant and that suits us fine - that can stay in others areas if it is wanted. The kind of behavior associated with the life of the night is not needed or required here.
Studies have show clearly that suburbs that are near railway stations are more susceptible to break-ins and theft so for our part the inconvenience of traveling 5-8 minutes to a train is a non issue compared to coming home to a destroyed home. Police presence and neighborly care is great. You can't beat a good locality and this explains why fewer homes come on the market in AC. Where would the owners go that could better what they have?

"Albany Creek - Park Life"

Albany Creek is in the northern suburbs of Brisbane and is a convenient and economical suburb choice for anybody working in the area or the city. The public transport system is good with regular buses that are usually on time. There are some great restaurants and cafe, several grocery centre and some nice little specialty shops for the housewives that are prolific in the area. With relatively new housing developments, it's become a good place for young families to settle down. There are some really nice parks about and the aquatics centre. The local schools are adequate and there is a generally friendly vibe in the suburb. At times the teenage element of the suburb can seem disturbing, but all in all they are actually harmless. It's close enough to the city and yet close also to Redcliffe and the bay.

Are you able to comment on how long it takes to get to the city from Albany Creek in peak hour? The Wife and I like the area and surrounding suburbs, however, we are wondering what the commute to the city would look like?

Thanks for your help.
