"Our favourite Brisbane suburb"

We have lived in many suburbs across Brisbane and internationally. Chapel Hill has been our favourite place to live. It has a great community spirit, house blocks are very large, schools are some of the best in Brisbane and access to shopping, city and airport is easy. We can't get over how good value Chapel Hill represents, it is actually very cheap compared with neighbouring suburbs such as Indooroopilly and Taringa. Feels like Chapel Hill is an undiscovered gem, probably won't stay that way for long?
Pros
  • Near Mt Coot-tha
  • Near University of Queensland
  • Great shopping
  • good local schools
  • Wonderful Leafy environment with great parks and walks
  • Safe environment
  • Excellent property value

"Love love love it here in Chapel Hill"

We moved here from Hills District in Sydney and love it, peaceful, quiet, great schools, heaps and heaps of trees, beautiful nature easy car or bus ride to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre or Kenmore Village shops. Easy access to Freeways to get to Airport and Sunny/Gold Coast . I can't say enough good things about this place! Chapel Hill Kindy is one of a kind, beautiful. School top notch. Less than 10ksto CBD. Better than where we came from by a long way - and I loved where I used to be, but it's got nothing on this place.
Pros
  • Buses
  • Family environment
  • Outdoor living

"A green pleasant suburb near Mout Cootha walking tracks which is also close to Indooroopilly Shopping town and Kenmore plaza for shopping"

Chapel Hill is a lovely suburb with homes on good sized blocks which have established gardens. It is near Mount Cootha parkland so it is easy to get exercise on the shady walking paths. Living here is very pleasant and it is a perfect spot for bird watchers.
The suburb has a very relaxed vibe. I have found the neighbours in my street to be very friendly but not intrusive.
There is a good bus service to the city and academics and students can easily get to the University of Queensland by bus.
Shopping is easy. The Kenmore Plaza shopping centre and Kenmore Village are less than 5 mins by car from all parts of Chapel Hill. We are very close to Indooroopilly Shopping Town so it is easy to shop for clothes, gifts etc. I can also walk to a fantastic local caf, a curry restaurant and and a small convenience store. There are a few good restaurants nearby in Kenmore and The Retro Bar is a good place for a drink and live music.
Both local primary schools have a very good reputation.
I find it easy to get to the Gold coast via the Logan highway and it takes less than 30 minutes to get to the airport via Legacy Way.
Overall, I would say it is a great place to live.
Pros
  • Great bird life including parrots, lorrikeets and rosellas
  • good local schools
  • Wonderful Leafy environment with great parks and walks
  • Safe environment
  • Excellent property value
  • Great community spirit

"Love Chapel Hill"

Green, leafy, safe, and houses and land with some size. Doesn't flood, and close to shops. Public transport is improving, but could still be better. Choose a house on the transport routes - Fleming Road, Burbong Road, and Chapel Hill Road are the bus routes.
Pros
  • Doesn't flood, ever!
  • Space to move on your block
  • A good mix of new and older homes ready for gentrification
  • good local schools
  • Wonderful Leafy environment with great parks and walks
  • Safe environment
  • Excellent property value

Ruru Hi Susan,

The whole suburb doesn't flood or there are certain areas that flood?

The suburb is quite big, any particular pockets that are better?

Thanks

"Becoming trendy as interest moves from Indooroopilly"

Seems high demand is coming from Taringa and Indooroopilly which have already seen good price rises. Chapel Hill has far greater value IMO due to larger block sizes but the same convenience as Indro.

"Investment potential"

Could be some capital growth in Chapel Hill based on increases in Toowong and Indooroopilly which could flow into Chapel Hill. Chapel Hill is a few minutes from central Indooroopilly and St Peters and has larger house blocks at much lower price. Chapel Hill has better access to Legacy Way (airport) and Wester Freeway (CBD) than much of Indooroopilly.

"One of Brisban's best suburbs for familiies"

Chapel Hill is a little known suburb 8km from Brisbane CBD at the foot of Mt Coot-tha. It has fantastic green space, walking paths, medical, and shopping at Kenmore and Indooroopilly. Chapel Hill is spoilt for schooling options with its own public school and access to some of the best private and public high schools (Indooroopilly and Kenmore) in Brisbane. Chapel Hill is less than 10 minutes from UQ's main campus at St Lucia. Infrastructure has been improved significantly over the past year with Legacy Way providing Chapel Hill residents access to the airport 15 mins door to door. Bus transport into the CBD and Indooroopilly is excellent. Large house blocks with some acreage and minimal units. Chapel Hill has all of the amenities of Indooroopilly and Toowong but with a better community spirit, larger house blocks and sensational value for money.

Chapel Hill is unique - we hope it continues to "fly under the radar" so as to preserve its unique community spirit!
Pros
  • Access to Airport and CBD
  • Shopping - Indooroopilly and Knmore
  • Education - primary school, state and private high schools and UQ.
  • good local schools
  • Wonderful Leafy environment with great parks and walks
  • Excellent property value
  • Great community spirit

"Fantastic if you can get 1/2 acre to 1 acre 8 to 9km from the city"

Chapel Hill is one of Brisbane's best kept secrets - it has an amazing community spirit, access to schools, shops, medical with walking paths and within minutes of Legacy Way and the Western Freeway.

"The Loveliest Leafiest Safest and Friendliest Suburb I have ever known ...."

When we arrived in Brisbane 20 years ago we rented in a central location and spent 6 months looking for the perfect suburb to raise the family, to feel like a getaway on weekend, with the best environment that Brisbane could offer - we found Chapel hill and have been there ever since.

True - Chapel Hill is not for the adrenalin junkie or the night clubber who wants to live down the stret from all the action.

Chapel Hill is for those who love the bush feel, enjoy friendly and considerate neighbors and who like to feel they are away form the hustle and bustle on weekends.

It is a bonus if you love going for nice walks up Mount Cootha or enjoying parks.
Pros
  • Wonderful Leafy environment with great parks and walks
  • good local schools
Cons
  • No Hustle and Bustle - you have to drive outside the suburb to get that

"Charming & Child-Friendly Chapel Hill"

Chapel Hill is synonymous with quiet leafy streets, large family homes with plenty of room to move and a very low crime rate. It's only 9 km from the Brisbane CBD and close to public transport via bus or nearby rail stations at Indooroopilly and Taringa.

One of the key attractors of Chapel Hill is the very real value for money when compared to other suburbs. Many homes in Chapel Hill are low maintenance brick & tile surrounded by well established gardens and the suburb itself backs on to National Park. There are more pools per capita in Chapel Hill than in most other suburbs in Brisbane.

It's little wonder Chapel Hill remains a family favourite - as it is home to the very well regarded Chapel Hill State School and on the doorstep to Nudgee Junior, St Peter's Lutheran College, and the world renowned University of Queensland at St Lucia.

Nearby Indooroopilly provides the largest retail precinct west of the Brisbane CBD along with cinemas, hotel and restaurants.

Chapel Hill represents excellent value for families.

"Has to be the cheapest buyibg in brisbane for what you get and distance from the city. Put a 1 in front of prices for similar in Melbourne and Sydney"

A quiet relaxing suburb so close to everything Brisbane has to offer. Property prices here are very cheap when compared to comparable interstate suburbs and distance to the CBD and structures of similar quality. Prices here must appreciate - it is one of Brisbane's best kept property secrets and offers extraordinary value.
It is unique having Mt.Cootha on the doorstep as there are country walks and bush tracks to discover, walk the dog, picnic, exercise and unwind from city living. It has a very high per capita income and most residents care well for their property's appearance. Pefect for families. It is only a matter of time before this suburb experiences strong price appreciation.
Other features; two major shopping centres only 5 minutes away with major shopping centres in close proximity, extensive bike tracks, walkng tracks, dog friendly areas, best private and public schools, sporting faciltities, Uni. of Qld 10 minutes away, many restaurants, pubs and cinemas.
The best value up-market suburb in Australia - see for yourself.

"Some History about Chapel Hill"

Chapel Hill got its name from the Methodists church built on land bought in 1873 for $7.50.The original church was replaced with a modern building in 1955, and since then Chapel Hill has become a thriving modern suburb. Aboriginals were plentiful in the area in the early days of Brisbane's settlement. They camped around Mount Cooth-tha, and ranged over hunting grounds that include today's Chapel Hill. The Patterson family established a sawmill in Cedarleigh Road.

"A quiet leafy suburb"

I loved living in Chapel Hill. The streets are quiet and leafy. I loved listening to the birds in the morning. The only drawback to the subub is the commute to the city. Although in off-peak you are only 15 minutes from the city, in peak hour it can take up to 45 minutes. There are lots of eateries and supermarkets in neighbouring suburbs like Kenmore and Taringa. Indooroopilly Shoppingtown is about 5 minutes away and it's great to be so close to so many shops and a Department Store. Schools in the area are good and you are close to the Uni of Qld though it can be hard to get there on public transport. Overall, for the peace and tranquility of the suburb, I would recommend it - however think twice if you need to comute to the city.

"close and covneient to all good schools"

green , but still close enough to all conveniences this has got to be the best place to live, Couple that with proximity to some of Brisbanes best primary and secondary schools and you have the best location for families. Unlike newer subusrbs- houses have character and lots of space to run around in. Forget these new land sizes- experience the luxury of living large block!
