"Very noisy- (from a resident, not a sales agent)"

I moved to Camp Hill thinking this was a nice little neighbourhood. Not at all.
This suburb is a construction site! The council approve multiple dwellings. Every second house is being developed. Streets are lined with trucks. Very nioisy.
Loss of character QLDER homes.
Very few parks have tiolets.
Unfriendly neighbourhood.
Over priced.
I would NOT recommend it.

"Forgotten Gem"

Where to start with this suburb...

I have lived here for most of my life, with the occasional stint in other cities. Camp Hill is one of Brisbane's suburbs I actively encourage new residents to check out. Despite being so close to the city (10-20mins in good traffic), it is an often overlooked suburb hardly causes a blip on people's radar. It's a quiet, leafy suburb popular with young families, retirees, and more recently young professionals. Parts of the suburb have fantastic views and you can easily spot the city and beyond.

The suburb is heavily serviced by public transport, the suburb being a major thoroughfare for buses between The City and transport hubs like Carindale and Cannon Hill. There are plenty of express buses running along Old Cleveland Rd, and additional buses along Stanley Road. The suburb features plenty of street parking should you choose to drive to the bus stops, and the nearby train station at Norman Park is also very handy.

For your shopping needs, there is the Samuel St village which has a Woolworths, Post Office, Bakery and the all important Bottle-o. There is another set of shops along Stanley Rd which features a small supermarket, fruit'n'veg store, butcher and quite possibly one of the best pizza shops in Brisbane. However, if you are willing to take a 5-10min drive, you have access to Queensland's second largest shopping centre at Carindale, another shopping centre at Cannon Hill, an IGA on Old Cleveland Rd, and more retail, restaurants and coffeeshops in Coorparoo and Stones Corner

The suburb encompasses a number of parks, but is also home to the popular Whites Hill Reserve, which features great bushwalking, sports fields, children's play equipment, BBQ facilities and picnic areas. It is also extremely close the Clem Jones Centre for the more sport-oriented people. There are numerous schools nearby - both private and public - catering for all ages of education.

Housing is affordable and recent developments have seen the construction of modern townhouses and apartments, attracting a vibrant and youthful professional crowd. Camp Hill has a mix of modern and post-war housing suited to both young families and retirees alike.

"The Suburban Life"

Brisbane's inner south has some great suburbs and this is surely one of them. Camp Hill was named after travellers used to use "Camp Hill" as a stopover on the way to Cleveland. Now Camp Hill mainly attracts families looking for the suburban life and is not short of shopping options with Martha St eating/shopping precinct, White Hill shopping centre, Westfield Carindale. The housing market in this area is highly sought after for its city views, large blocks, quiet settings and the timeless "Queenslander".
Overall a great place to bring up your family and is worth while checking out.

"A great place for couples/families who want convenience!"

Camp Hill is a fantastic suburb with everything you need at your finger tips. With Carindale Shopping Centre just minutes away, trendy coffee shops to be found on Samuel Street, Martha Street and many more I probably haven't even come across, Camp Hill is definately a top suburb for everyone. Also the area is great for families as parks, playgrounds, dog parks are close by also. If you are someone who catches public transport buses run frequently in this area, very convenient!

"Camp Hill"

Expensive suburb for what it is totally overrated.

Lifeprime
Lifeprime Glad you chose to be honest in your review. Let me present an alternative, and equally dismissive viewpoint.

Great friendly suburb for young families, excellent access to the gateway, trade coast and CBD, plus ready access to the bay for the boat, fishing and straddie/moreton. Lots of public transport options, schools and sporting facilities, and some absolute gems in terms of local restaurants, markets and shops... (and social media is not a replacement for local word of mouth)

May not be the suburb for the investor, but then it's horses for courses as the proverb goes, and if you missed a bargain there is no need to be long in the tooth.

BrisbaneLover
BrisbaneLover Overrated??? To me, Camp Hill ticks all the boxes! - close to the city, transport is quick and easy, express bus to UQ, Clem Jones - best and most economical fitness facilities in Brisbane, top quality schools close at hand, modern shopping centres easily accessible, close to SouthBank and QPAC (close enough to catch a taxi without it breaking the bank!), spoilt for choice with hospitals - at least three very convenient and easy to get to, breezy with beautiful trees and good solid houses on solid earth underneath. The list goes on, but those are just some of the reasons why CH is so worth buying and living in. And for the investor, I think it's ideal. If you want to buy and can sit it out 5 or 10 years, then Camp Hill will only go from strength to strength. It's a neighbourhood with so much to offer and a suburb where people are dedicated to making their properties immaculate. Which means, the tone of the neighbourhood just gets better and better all the time and the value increases accordingly. Methinks qldinvestr is trying to manipulate a cheap bargain. You get what you pay for, qldinvestr!

Joserealestate I've been investing in Camp Hill for the past 11 years and beleive the suburb has performed really well in a rising market and been a stable investment in a tough market.

EmbersLucent
EmbersLucent Moderately expensive these days, I'd agree with. My parent's house is currently worth 15 times what they paid for it, back in 1988. Camp Hill is verging on inner city.

However, I cannot agree with the statement as a whole. "expensive for what you get."

Camp Hill is a small suburb, but is situated very conveniently between suburbs that DO have all the great facilities. Which I think is good. Camp Hill is not cluttered with these facilities, whilst having very direct and easy access to them.

NatS4 I couldn't agree with you more! I'm sitting here with my street, yet again parked with over 5 trucks. I have small kids. Not recommended suburb for families.

"Grow your family with the suburb..."

"the best places are 4 blocks from your door" -miss M, NY, NY.

Camp hill reminds me of new farm of 15 years ago, when the suburb was filled with a friendly and diverse ethno-demographic mix, 2 art galleries, only Coles was open til 9pm, you always could find a park and travel was an easy 20 mins to the CBD.

Camp hill offers the same today, with friendlier neighbors, some of the best community sporting facilities ( best FINA club with the holland park hawkes, great swim and triathlete with Clem Jones centre), a 'crackerjack' of an annual festival and ready access to many other sporting facilities and parks.

Public transport is mostly zone 2 ( same as west end / new farm ) and there is an imperially large number of state, council and private projects building up infrastructure and commercial/domestic spaces.

"Perfect place to live and bring up a family"

I just love Camp Hill, from the large leefy streets and the sound of birds in the morning to the 2-5min car or walk to some of the best eating spots in Brsibane. The suburb is great as it's home owners are such a great mix from couples in there 80's that have lived here there whole life to young and estastablished families. You always see children playing in the streets and a hello from residends as they walk by. There are many lovely parks to choose from. Traffic is not a problem here as there is lots of options for getting into the city and the northside most of them you are in fast moving traffic or against the traffic all together.

"Great for families"

Camp Hill is a lovely suburb that is fast transforming with many young families moving in. Certainly hilly and many houses have lovely views. Very friendly and helpful neighbourhood with most residents long stayers. Excellent access to city, shops (Old Cleveland Rd, White Hill, Carindale etc), and dinning.

"Best street in Camp Hill"

City View Rd is a beautiful wide street lined with massive old trees. Many homes have views of the city or moutains and even though it is 15 minutes from the city it feels like you are close to nature as there are a lot of birds and wildlife. Most of the houses have been renovated but each is unique which adds to the overall charm of the street. Neighbours are active and friendly but also happy to give you privacy if you aren't somebody who is interested in socialising. There is no nightlife (apart from good restaurants) but you are close enough to the city to catch a cab in and back without breaking the bank balance. City View rd runs off Old Cleveland rd which means public transport is at your doorstep. The road is very quiet with not a lot of traffic. Carindale shopping centre is 5 minutes drive in case you need some retail therapy. You can walk to Woolworths which is one street over. There are also some great restaurants on Martha st - 2 minutes down the road. If you are looking for a cheap night out then you can't go wrong with Sings on Cavendish which is BYO. If you would like fine dining 'Cinco' is at the top of the street on Old Cleveland - but book first as it is always full. I lived in Bulimba prior to moving to Camp Hill. City View is without a doubt the nicest home and street I have ever lived in. You can't go wrong!

"Convenient"

Camp Hill is one of the most convenient suburbs in Brisbane. 15 minutes to the city on the bus (will get better with new bus way), close to at least 3 schools, plenty of shops, 5 minutes to Westfields, and very pretty. It's also only 15 minutes to get to the northside over the gateway.
