"Highly recommended suburb"

I lived here more than 5 years never had any problems . It’s a good suburb to grow up the family. It’s quite leafy suburb not far from Brisbane City. Close to everything. Large blocks of land and big good looking houses. New residential developments are now happening every where in Bridgeman Downs. We had no problems with the public transport. Two buses are running every 10 minutes to city and one via Chermside. Only 35 minutes taken by bus and only 25 to 30 minutes taken by car. Brisbane Airport is only 15 minutes drive. Great shopping centres Westfield Chermside is only 5 km away and Aspley hyper market is only 3 km away. Two large hospitals Prince Charles and Holy Spirit are only within 5 km radius.

"Family oriented, clean and leafy, with city convenience""

Lived here for 2 years and absolutely love it. Couldn't think of a better place to raise a family in Brisbane as the suburb is surrounded by excellent schools, hospitals and has access to very good parks, great selection of cafes and quick access to the CBD, Westfield Chermside and Brisbane Airport .

Approx 15km from the city but need to get into Carseldine for a rail link. Gympie Road is a nightmare in the morning. Add to this more development underway.

"One of the safest and prestigious suburbs in Brisbane"

Classy suburb with classy residents, properties and businesses!
Having quality real estate, flood free, large and elevated blocks of land, lots of green spaces and trees are some of the reasons attracting families and professionals to move in and settle for a long term. There is an increasing demand on reasonable size blocks of land and quality housing - fortunately there are still acreage properties available for future subdivisions.
The neighbours are friendly and helpful and there is a huge range of employment and shopping options, parks, schools and hospitals all within easy reach.
Bridgeman Downs is the place to be if moving into a quality lifestyle for the family in Brisbane North within 15km radius from the CBD!

"Beautiful suburb"

Have just moved into the area on the border of Bridgeman Downs and McDowall and I am loving it. There are so many parks to choose from to take the kids, location is amazingly convenient to everything (Chermside, Aspley Hypermarket, McDowall Village) and yet it feels like you are away from it all when you go home to the quiet suburb with huge houses and big blocks of land. Awesome family friendly suburb and I think we have made the perfect decision by moving into this area.

"Great place to live"

Bridgeman Downs is a great easy-living suburb - it has everything and within walking reach. It is a suburb wilth all kind of families. Demograhpic is quite mixed too, originally there were a lot of retirees, but now quite a few professionals,and families are moving in. I have lived in the area for thirty years. It is one of the best and posh suburb in Brisbane. It is only a few minutes drive to Chermside the biggest Westfield shopping centre in Australia. Just 14 kilometres to Brisbane CBD. Hospitals and schools are nearby . In my opinion, due to its relative proximity to city and availability of all kind of amenities, it is good place to buy and establish a home.

"Excellent place to live for any ages"

We have been living in this area close to reserve bush land for 10 years. It is very quiet, safe, lovely and enjoyable place. When you come back from a hard day or night at work, you won't notice the difference. Always quiet from busy traffic and like. Neighbours are friendly and meet each other often from walking, exercising along in the parks or other social events like open air movie or Christmas New Year celerabrations. Parks are well maintained and complete with kids playgrounds and personal exercise/gym machines. Most houses are new and yards are neat and tidy. Mostly working couples or young familes and semi-retired people living here. You can see very often personalised plated new cars.

Public transport is much better than years ago with addition of Aspley Hypermarket Bus Station (with bike locked up area) with BUZ services to city via Maundrell Tce. Other prepaid express bus services to city on Beckett road and Gympie road (with Park and Ride at Graham road) are available as well. Train services can be assessed through Carseldine, Zilmere and Geebung train stations.

Various choices for shopping, medical services, public schools, child care centres, food, pubs and entertainments. Prince Charles Hospital is fifteen minutes away. Reasonable access to airport, Sunshine Coast and Gateway motorway. Police and Fire srvices are not far too. Choices of reliable telephone and internet services are available.
