"Great Properties Shame About The Renters"

Lovely suburb and you get a lot of house for the money. great options for private schools who all seem to have their own buses to and from. Good selection of supermarkets and Albany Creek has quality places to eat out or takeout. My only negative is the number of rentals, particularly Defence Housing Properties here and in Warner. These people have no regard for community spirit as they don't stay longer than two or three years, do what they like without consequences, let their feral kids reek havoc unsupervised, causing home owners to do a runner and rent theirs out until the DHA lease is up. One DHA tenant was trapping neighbours cats and DHA did nothing about it. So their tenant dictated how we owners had to live when there was never an issue until she moved in. Now a once quiet street looks like a war zone, strewn with banged up vehicles and out of control kids, loud music, tatty gardens. These things affect property values. Not good for professional people like doctors, nurses, lectures, teachers, managers, shift workers or anyone who uses their brains or tries to work from home, and is more a tradies or manual skills type environment. Do your research before you buy.
Pros
  • fantastic local school
  • proximity to city and amenities
Cons
  • DHA Rentals

"Nice subsurb but a bit too far from the city"

We liked living at Eatons Hill but it was a little too far from town and besides Strathpine. Good value though.

"Nice area but not residents"

Very nice area. Nice parks and open spaces. Limited shopping but good eating out options. Very materialistic people who are more concerned about their social status and public profile than most other things. Limited public transport. Over inflated house prices mainly due to the previously mentioned people.

"Beautiful area, with a definate bespoke upper class feel to it."

We moved here from the north lakes area of Brisbane. All I can say is the area beautiful, full of fantastic people. And alot of people going for morning walks around the beautiful parks. Travel time to the city is quite good, and a close aspect to samford makes it great for a weekend cafe visit. The eatons hill hotel seems to always have alot going on with some really well know international acts. Being right next to albany creek, you get all the amenities that anyone could need. We looked at various private schools for our children and we found eatons hill primary school the closest thing to a state school that is run like a private school. The teachers are fantastic and school itself is one of the best I have seen. It shows when you are collecting your child from school that there are plenty of high end cars with really respectable looking people picking up there children. Wantima golf course is a walk away for a weekend hit if needed. The area also has nice large blocks with one of a kind designed homes to give it that bespoke type feel.
Pros
  • Upper class area
  • fantastic local school
  • proximity to city and amenities
Cons
  • can be expensive to buy

"Easy place to live with everything you could want within a couple of minutes of home."

A private and safe suburb with a leafy aspect plus parks for both families with children, dog parks, sport and walking tracks including a track to the creek containing turtles and other wildlife. Great access to grocery shopping and every possible food outlet and cafes with close access to medical, schools/childcare and entertainment at the Albany Creek Tavern. Value for money - affordable living in a prestige suburb not far from city but without the hussle and bustle and traffic.

"Great place to live - especially in the acreages behind the estates!"

The acreages at the back of Eatons Hill are a really great place to live - big blocks, very quiet, no major thoroughfare, and a great park at Sargent's Reserve. Also close to Eatons Hill State School - one of the best state schools in the area.
