Is Brisbane better than Adelaide?

Hi we are a family of 4. A couple in late 30's and 2 kids under three yrs of age. We reside in Adelaide and are contemplating about moving to Brisbane. We dont quite like the winters here in Adelaide and Brisbane comes up first in the list to offset it. However then there are other considerations like education, cost of living, public transport, health care, people, culture, home buying and so on. If someone can share names of some good suburbs with the average rent for a 3 bedrooms place and a median house price too. Being around a good public school is important to us. Job is not a problem as I can get an internal transfer in my company with an option for work from home. Any honest suggestions would be helpful to us in deciding our next move. Thanks in advance....

Have to say coming from Sydney myself 12 years ago I found out fast with a 1 year old where family safe areas are - Tarragindi (Non biased of course) / Victoria Point / Bulimba / Brookfield / Paddington / Ashgrove / Yeerongpilly are best bets - this depending on budgets and financial status of course

Hi dreamchaser, as far as affordable housing and family-friendliness go, Id recommend focusing your search in Brisbanes south and eastern suburbs.

Sunnybank Hills: Median rent on Homely for a 3 bedroom is $405pw and the median list price of 3 bed homes for sale is currently $500K. Many schools to choose from in neighbouring suburb Sunnybank as well and great for shopping.

Wynnum: Median rent on Homely for a 3 bedroom is $445pw and a median list price of 3 bed homes for sale is currently $610K. There are lots of water-related kid-friendly activities as you live on beautiful Moreton Bay. There are lots of different schools to choose from in the area too and 3 train stations making it easy to travel to the cbd.
