Norman Park, Morningside, Bulimba, or Coorparoo - what would you choose and why?

We're a family of 4 with 2 girls 5 and 8. We're relocating from SA to Brisbane. We've narrowed it down to Norman Park, Morningside, Bulimba, or Coorparoo. We're looking for a great public school, friendly neighbourhood, and public transport to the city not too far away.

Hi. I am a relocation specialist in Brisbane and have been helping families relocate for over 7 years (www.habitatrelocations.com.au). In my experience, many of my clients have chosen to move to Bulimba or Norman Park but it must be noted that these are quite expensive suburbs for Brisbane. Bulimba is a very popular family suburb with a range of accommodation choices (apartments, townhouses and houses - depending on budget) and the local public and catholic primary schools have very good reputations. Bulimba has a lovely village feel along Oxford Street (which is not replicated in many other suburbs), full of small shops, cafes, restaurants as well as a park and playground. The riverside location is also very pleasant and popular for new residents of Brisbane. Norman Park also has a very well regarded primary school surrounded predominately by houses, there are some lovely green spaces but the area is more hilly that Bulimba and a little further from the riverside walks. Morningside is a good area to consider if your budget does not extend to Bulimba and Norman Park as it is close to both areas and also has the benefit of being on the train line in some parts. Morningside State School is OK but has had a fire recently, so not sure exactly how that has affected things. Coorparoo is a reasonable area as well but is hilly and intersected by some busy roads. Schools are OK in the area. You could consider Camp Hill as well (but beware of plane noise). Happy to have a quick chat with you if you want to get in touch.
