"I have lived here twice!"

So I see the negative comments, and while I agree with some of them, because every suburb has a negative element, I don't agree with most. As for the comments about flooding, so did a considerable portion of Brisbane during the 2011 floods. Do your research and don't live in a flood area if you don't want to get flooded.
I have not had any problems at all. It depends where you live within Bundamba. There are low socio-economic areas, but if you don't want the hassles, don't live there. As for break-ins, there are break-ins everywhere, unfortunately the crime rate is increasing everywhere, it is a universal problem.
I lived and worked in Bundamba in the mid 2000 and moved here again last year. I had and currently have wonderful rental neighbours, they are quite and respectful. My son flourished at the local school, Bundamba primary and he is now attending the Secondary College. It is a lovely suburb and we are really happy here. Houses are still quite affordable, and the trains make a quick trip to Brisbane for work. Ipswich in general is growing and is quite family friendly, with lots of greenspace, parks, pools, and a whole lot more to do.
Haters will always hate, but i have found it a great place to live.

"Have lived here for 32 years."

Use to be a nice peaceful area. Now the crime rate it higher. Loud music from rentals n housing. People always fighting and cars almost hitting someone because they have no care. Coming home at night most people have high beam on so u can't see much n have to pull over. Police are called out alot because we have more units going up. Mostly of the working people who own their homes are great. Though their isn't many left. It's now a place for drugs crime abuse along with the great people being to scared to walk outside to their car. Even in your own backyard people will enter.any breaking ins in the area. No longer safe to go for a walk unless you are with at least 4 people. The young in bundamba have no respect. But in saying that. Some people can be friendly I guess.

"Low-class area"

On my street there are nice houses and decent people, but we are surrounded by poor places, although, as everywhere in OZ, prices are still high if you want to buy, regardless of the neighborhood. In fact everything from Darra to Ipswich and beyond all the way to... ummm... Perth is redneck country, with a handful of immigrants from Third-World places. I only live here because it's hard to find a pet-friendly home for a decent price. Will move as soon I have the chance.

"Bring your boat for when you flood"

the areas near the river flood over the roof. Whoever wrote above that this is an area for professional is insane. Its working class and underclass with only the desperate who live closest to the river, on the up side its probably the only place left where you can buy acreage for under 500k close to a major city and the people are a tight little community, they will help you when the next flood hits
