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.
