All suburbs have 'less desirable' pockets. However Alex Hills is not an area in Brisbane I would consider 'not great' it is full of wonderful families, nice parks and great mid size shopping centre, great gyms and a fantastic conservation area for trails runs etc. I think it's a lovely suburb and the housing is still very affordable. The high school has a great reputation too
Absolute rubbish. I have lived here for 9 years and never had any problems at all. I am raising an 18 month old daughter (with my wife) and have no concerns with the area in the slightest. In fact i have just sold my house & bought another one also in Alex Hills, after looking elsewhere in the bayside & actually having concerns with other suburbs (Wynnum West, Capalaba & so on).
I have lived in the southern part of Alexandra Hills for more than 15 years; I really enjoy living here and have no plans to leave. My kids have grown up here and went to local schools. It is a friendly and safe area and we have never had any problems. I can definitely say that this part of Alexandra Hills is a great place to live.
We really enjoy living in Alexandra Hills. The neighbours are great. The shopping centre is a short walk away. The suburb is central to all other suburbs in Redlands Coast.
