"xiyangyang"

We just moved in. All neighbours are friendly. Looks gorgers in October, Jacaranda tree are blooming, purple colour everywhere.
Did record the trip to city(Queen street) for continue 2 days, distance 13km, arrive in 17 minutes.

Chapel Hill, every street is a hill. Walk in the street is not fun.

"Overdeveloped"

Used to be a great suburb but spoilt by overdevelopment and subdivisions especially the area bounded by Chapel Hill Road, Burbong Street and Moggill Road. Looking forward to leaving.
jiantaol
jiantaol I don`t understand why these peoples give 1 star and what`s their purpose. Just because start to have sub-division land so you give 1 star? In Chapel Hill Even sub-division land they are in decent size. What score you give for those suburbs allow 200-300sqm land?

"Be prepared to drive"

Getting to work is difficult because of the traffic. Public transport is in the form of buses but they aren't that convenient. No shops. If you like peace and quiet in a very hilly area and don't mind driving everywhere, this is the suburb for you. The older houses need constant work.

"Chapel Hill - my home my heart..."

We moved to Chapel Hill five years ago and we love it here! It is a green and leafy suburb with a relaxing welcoming vibe. We are close to bus routes and not far from Indooroopilly Train line if needed. We are spoiled for choice when shopping and so close to the country if we feel like a complete change - the best of all worlds. Our dog loves exploring the neighbourhood and we have met so many interesting people on our walks. The Mt Coot-tha reserve is in our backyard so we enjoy nature in great abundance. Less and less do we feel the need to leave our local area because we feel so comfortable and peaceful in Chapel Hill. Access to the airport for holidays and other trips has been made easy with Legacy Way so close to us. Morning commutes can be challenging at peak hour so locals need to find ways to manage their journey until upgrades are implemented. In every other respect this is a super suburb for its lifestyle and location. I think they will have to carry us out of Chapel Hill in a box before we decide to leave!! All newcomers welcome ❤❤

rebeccat12 Hello, congrats on making the move and it sounds like everythings worked out well. We're a family of 4 and are planning to relocate from Melbourne to brissy later this year. We are also considering indoorapilly and Barden. Do you find the chapel hill community is friendly and why did you choose chapel hill (as opposed to indoorapilly?). I really appreciate your feedback on the move and the suburb itself. It looks lovely!

Thanks
Rebecca

sudt Hi Rebecca not sure if you and family have made the move up north but yes the community here in Chapel Hill is friendly to say the least. We moved from Sydney October last year and never look back. If you need school, Indooroopilly State primary and high schools are both highly ranked in QLD although with the former it's quite competitive and you'd need to live within its catchment area - tip is to rent within the catchment, enrol the children then move if need be. Otherwise Chapel State State Primary School is also good. Indooroopilly is bit too crowded to our liking and like tonij3 alluded to it's an easy short drive from Chapel Hill. Sorry haven't been to Bardon much but all the best with your move!

rebeccat12 Hi thanks for your reply! I decided on chapel hill and are in the process of enrolling the kids to the local school. I was there in Oct and was sold by the pretty jacaranda trees! I hope your move went well. Thanks again!

"Too much development underway"

Chapel Hill was a great suburb before they started subdividing 3acre blocks into 20 house sites. Too much traffic now.
jiantaol
jiantaol 3 acre blocks divide into 20 house still 600+ sqm per site. what`s wrong with that for a suburb with 10km to the CBD.

"Leafy, peaceful with lots of bird life near the city"

We moved to Chapel Hill 1 year ago. We were unfamiliar with the area but got lost in some back streets trying to find some walking trails in Mount Cootha. Well we are very glad we got lost! We fell in love with the area straight away. It feels as though you are miles away from the city but have all the conveniences of Indooroopilly, Kenmore and the city close by.

When we were first looking at suitable suburbs, we wanted to buy somewhere with a train line; Chapel Hill doesn't have train access- instead it has an amazing cycle route into the city. It is exactly 10km on the bike which takes me half an hour. I ride to work every day, along with many of my neighbours. It is fantastic.

Another important thing to note is the demographic here: because of the position (with the university and lots of good schools) there are many academics living here, from all over the world. This gives it a really cool vibe (and very interesting conversations while walking the dog).

We love this suburb.

"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

"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.

"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.

  • Great bird life including parrots, lorrikeets and rosellas

"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

"May be some capital growth in short-term"

Good suburb but has sailed under the radar compared with Indooroopilly and Brookfield/Pullenvale. May get a price boost when Indooroopilly price rises spill over into Chapel Hill. Also will benefit as commuters see the benefit in Legacy Way.

"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

"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!
