"Alex Hills is the bomb"

I love living in Alex Hills. It's very close to Wellington Point and you can go for a beautiful water front walk whenever you please. The Capalaba shops have EVERYTHING you could possibly need and every chain store is available in Capalaba. Cleveland is 5 min away which is very trendy at night and has lots of great cafes. My neighbors and I all have big backyards not like the tiny 400sqm blocks in inner city suburbs. I work near Mt Gravatt and it takes about 20 - 25 min to get there in the mornings. The CBD is a bit further, about 30 min or longer in peak time.
Pros
  • Big backyards, family friendly
  • every chain store available in Alex Hills or Capalaba
  • lots of green space
  • central location
  • Friendly neighbors
Cons
  • No nightlife.
  • Bad traffic through Capalaba

alexh9 Hi, my neighbours kids go to Alexandra Hills State High and they like it :) If you are concerned about OP ratings I think paying a bit of extra for Redlands College is advisable, as it has a great rating.

"Lots of parks, good schools and shops, easy commute to city and close to the bay"

I've lived in a quiet street of Alex Hills for about 10 years now. It's an easy drive to Brisbane CBD - about 35 mins. There are lots of great parks and bush with bike tracks. Love being close to the bay and islands, so much you can do there on the weekend. Alex Hills and Capalaba shops have everything you need. Good schools and TAFE college in Alex Hills and there is a hospital is in next suburb. Good neighbours in my street - everyone is friendly.

"Leafy suburb with kind neighbors"

I have been living at Alex Hills for about a month now (just moved here) and so far I am quite happy with the place. I was hesitant at first because I thought that the drive to work every morning would be a nightmare but it only takes 25-30 min to get back into Brisbane. Sometimes in the afternoon, the traffic can get quite bad near Capalaba shops. My neighbors are very friendly and often come over to chat and have helped us with renovating. For the most part, the suburb is extremely quiet although I have had dramas with neighbors a street over who have domestic disputes late into the night. This has only been a once of weekend occurrence though so I'm hoping it's not a regular thing. There are heaps of nice parks around and it's a great suburb to own a dog. It's super convenient to shops as Alex Hills Shopping Centre and Capalaba Park and cinema are only 5 min away. There is also Super A-mart, Bunnings, Aldi all within 5 min. I don't have kids so I can't comment on schools but I can say that there is many to choose from.
Pros
  • Big backyards, family friendly
  • every chain store available in Alex Hills or Capalaba
  • lots of green space
  • Friendly neighbors
Cons
  • Bad traffic through Capalaba
  • No nightlife.

"Friendly neighbourhood"

Moved here from Townsville 3 years prior. Unfortunately now that I am leaving due to a promotion I am really going to miss my neighbourhood. We have had the privilege of living on the Wellington side of Alex Hills and have found it so convenient to every amenity. It's close to the 4 different beaches ( Wellington Point, Victoria Point, Raby Bay and Cleveland). it's convenient to hospitals, health specialists, shopping centres, schools, both train and bus and the people around the neighbourhood are friendly but not intrusive. We've had gardening advice, pet grooming tips, and all different kinds of assistance from people around the block where we live without once having been to each other's house. People around here are just lovely and there are a lot of parks where people take their dogs to roam. I fully recommend this side of Alex Hills.
Pros
  • Friendly neighbors
  • Close to medical facilities
  • Close to beaches
  • Big backyards, family friendly
  • every chain store available in Alex Hills or Capalaba
  • central location
  • lots of green space
Cons
  • No nightlife.

"Convenient central location, lots of green space, great lifestyle"

I moved here 15 years ago and I still love it. It is very central and close to everything I love in Redland City including Moreton Bay. Alexandra Hills shopping centre has some great specialty shops and parking is always easy. It's also close to the main shopping/transport hub at Capalaba and from there an easy commute to Brisbane city via express bus. There are a number of nature reserves in the area with walking trails and lots of birds and wildlife, including koalas. Fantastic place for families and anyone wanting a relaxed lifestyle. Good schools plus TAFE and not far from good universities. Much better lifestyle than I previously had in Sydney and it's so much more affordable.

"Great family suburb"

Moved here 25 years ago and raising my own children in the suburb now - wouldn't choose anywhere else. It is close to water, shops, schools, parks and everything you could need.

"The Hub of the Redlands"

I am a business owner in the Shopping Centre for 3 years now and am I could not have chosen a better location to start a small business! Alex Hills is geographically located in the middle of the Redlands City so we get lots of passing traffic. Our team love the convenience of having lots of cafes and restaurants for lunch and Trade Secret is awesome for shopping for clothes and gifts. The parking is laid on so its easy for us and our clients to stop in.
