"Awesome location"

This area is fantastic. It is close to the city, close to the numerous bus lines direct to the city, as well as being safe, convenient and family friendly.

Carina heights is between the upper class neighbourhoods of camp hill and carindale, so expect prices to eventually catch up with those two.
Pros
  • location
  • safe and convenient
  • price
Cons
  • would be better if there was a train line

"Hmm..."

We have been renting in Carina Heights for the last 6 months & up until recently, haven't had any issues. Just last week, however, our house was broken into & upon discussing the issue with our neighbours, we were most disappointed to be informed that this isn't an uncommon occurance in our street. As with any area, make sure you do your research & find out who your neighbours are before moving in. We also live near a main road & loud hoons like to use our street late at night as a connector. This area is very overrated & the cost of living is very overpriced.
All negatives being put aside, the area is quite convenient - frequent public transport to the city & Westfield Carindale just a short drive away.

"Ticks All the Boxes. Position, Price, Potential"

I've lived in Carina Heights for 15 years. Carina Heights has better amenity than most surrounding suburbs and many parts are still reasonably priced. Schools are close, Public Transport is fantastic and will be even better when the Eastern busway is extended to Carina shops then Carindale shopping Centre. The suburb is generally quiet with a bit of road noise from the major roads (Old Cleveland Rd, Creek Rd, Winstanley St) some aircraft noise but nowhere near as loud as Balmoral, Morningside, Canon Hill.
Clem Jones Sports Centre has a pool, Gymnasium, Bowls Club etc etc, Other attributes include: Carina Leagues Club, Carina Shopping strip on Old Cleveland Rd, Some bikeways though they need to be linked to Bulimba Ck better, Carindale shopping centre and Hotel nearby. Whites Hill bushland reserve walking trails.
There is a mix of housing in different zones, new town houses close to Carina Shops, many post war houses, expensive houses with views on higher land adjoining Whites Hill.
Carina Heights is between the more exclusive suburbs of Carindale to the East and Camp Hill to the West, has better amenity than both and is better priced though this anomally won't last.

"Great Place to Live"

Carina Heights is a great place to raise kids, close to everything... Schools, sports, shopping and Parks.

Carina Heights is a quiet area surrounded with natural bush land with possums and birds to wake up too. We have the best of both worlds only 10minutes drive to Brisbane City, views of trees and walking distance to everything. It’s like living in the country but having everything that the city has within walking distance. What more could you want!
10minutes drive to the city, 20minutes drive to the water, five minutes’ walk to the Westfield’s at Carindale Shopping Centre which has everything you could possibly need.
We have Tafes and Universities only 15minutes away on a bus, less if you drive. I use to live at Bulimba but everything was so over priced but here we have better access to shopping centre and a variety of schools without the overcharging..
