"Fantastic family friendly suburb"

I have lived in EP for 5 yrs and love what it has to offer for my young family.
Plenty of parks, shops, restaurants and cafes in the area, and love the Kedron Brook for walking/recreation.

"Aaron"

Great area Especially near Harvey Norman great new townhouses getting really pricey though however it is the best part of Everton park
The “COVID tax” lol has basically added 100k on the normal 3 bedroom townhouse price so it says price over 500k it’ll sell close to or over 600k
The area is 7km to Brisbane city
Restaurants at the neighbourhood market are great and growing. Great schools close to public transport also the airport.
Traffic gets crazy however that’s what happens when you live this far from the city.

"Good suburb, now a bit pricey"

We lived in Everton Park on Mountridge St for 4yrs and have just moved. Overall we were happy there and have only left as we purchased a property elsewhere.

Pros
Convenient to supermarkets, laneway restaurants, drs, Optometrist, pharmacy, schools etc

A short drive to decent playgrounds and not far from Raven St Reserve (Chermside West) for a bush walk.

Safe, although we always kept things locked up.

Quiet neighbours & generally quiet at night but there has definitely been an increase in traffic & associated noise with the new road development. Strathpine road is busy with trucks, cars and ambulances so you often here that 24/7. Depending on what street you are in you may be sandwiched between major roads.

Cons
Limited footpaths depending on what street you are living on.

Noise & people speeding

We heard the occasional argument coming from Page St.

Rental & property prices have gone a bit over the top. The suburb is nice but not that nice!

Public transport isn't good. Buses only.

Some air pollution from backyard bomb fires depending on where you live. This can blow straight into your house.

The occasional roaming dog.

"Fantastic suburb so close to the city. Development plus"

I have recently moved into Everton Park three months ago and couldn't be happier. Lots of brick homes going through renovation phases, especially Trouts estate area. The new laneway nearing completion will be fantastic, as well as the retail tenancies opening up in the old masters. Everton Park has so much to offer and I'm so glad I chose to move here.
Perfect for young families.

"A great place to live and an even better investment"

I moved from Sydney to Everton Park and I love it. The green parks, shops and people are second to none. I'm so glad we built our new home here. Three new proposed developments will only add to the property prices and make it a vibrant hub!! This will become the 'it' suburb of Brisbane make no mistake about it,

Agree 100% Jen, it is exciting to see they are building some form of restaurant next to the cold rock ice creamery

"Small town feels"

I wouldn't live anywhere else. I think its the perfect spot in Brisbane. Only 8kms to the city, close to a couple of shopping centres, parks and walking tracks

"Perfect for singles and families"

I've lived in Everton Park for a few years now. Started out renting as a single young professional now an owner occupier in this great suburb with my husband and kids. Short and easy commute to the CBD. Family friendly area with lots of parks, walking/ cycling tracks, safe and convenient.

"Excellent, quiet, friendly and clean suburb"

Having moved to Everton Park 18 months ago I have enjoyed every minute of living here. Everything is extremely close, with a Woolworth, coles, big W and Target all within 5 minutes walking distance, however still leaving the suburb with a country town feel!

There is literally Acres of beautiful, clean parklands and sporting fields and the new redevelopments on south pine road will see restaurants and alfresco dining.

Very very happy with living here, plus its only 15 minutes drive to the heart of the city!

In a period of twelve months, I had to call the police ten times to report noise and crazy behavior in rentals near me. This included very open drug use. Yes, the police did act, and fortunately things have improved. But it is nothing like the area it was seven years ago, and wait until the Mirvac development starts and they strip the green off the paddock.

I don't think you are talking about the right suburb Helen, Everton park has been and is lovely, as you said, things have improved (although they were never that bad). Mirvac will compliment the area, just like it did to the now booming and alfresco friendly Crows nest in Sydney, the old Oa'ces is currently being renovated into lovely restaurants.
You best head down to Teralba for a kick of the footy if you think there will be any "stripping of the green", this suburb is just terrific.

helens21
helens21

I do know where I live. And I know how many people have sold up and left my street in the last two years. And the fact that the streets are clogged with parked cars. Yes, there will be more eateries eventually, which is good, of course. I am very familiar with Teralba park although I do bot kick footy, I have run through it many times. And if the Mirvac development is so wonderful, why is Tim Mander so concerned about it? Because the access roads won't be able to cope with the traffic that's why. I do notice that one of the eateries in the Woolworths complex has gone bust and left, maybe business ain't so good?

I'm not here to argue with you, champ, however here is a bit of advice:
"If you're looking to sell your property, coming on here and bringing down the holsitic rating o the suburb isn't going to help your cause"
Sweetie, I would like to see you run a sandwich shop directly adjacent to a subway and not go bust.
The reality is that Everton park is a terrific suburb.

She is entitled to comment. You love it she obviously doesn't. It sounds like you are woriied about your house sale, which now make me question your reviews, amandaj13. And yes I'm well aware you haven't said you are selling, I'm just inferring that now!

"A rental ghetto!"

I've lived here seven years. In the beginning it was lovely, like a village, with a good mix of residents of all ages. However in the last couple of years the council has allowed the area to be overdeveloped to the point where it has become a rental ghetto. I don't know anyone in my street anymore, the residents are all transient. Apartments, townhouses and houses are rented to groups of drunken youths who yell and roam the streets and drive around with loud banging music emanating from their cars.
I tried to sell recently but the few offers I got would not have bought me anything comparable elsewhere. South Pine road is a traffic-clogged nightmare with motorcyclists treating it like a speedway. The pollution is staggering. Green areas are vanishing under residential developments.

I don't know if we are talking about the same Everton park mate, pollution? The place is squeaky clean and a superb place to live.

I live right next to South Pine Road. in the seven years I've lived here, the traffic has increased and likewise the pollution. The area has become much more heavily built up, lots more cars in the area now. where there were homes with yards, there are now large apartment blocks. I now have a permanent cough, and I'm a fit person. I can't leave because I can't sell for a reasonable price.

One would suggest can't sell for a "reasonable" price because your horrifically negative mindset reflects your approach to real estate.
Everton Park is a beautiful place, I have lived here for 12 years and have never seen these "drunken youths" you speak of, I would change your star rating accordingly...champ

helens21

Obviously I am not personally involved in the sale of my property, I have an agent for that, their advertising and marketing is brilliant, the property is well presented, but the offers are very small. The drunken youths went up and down my street around 3.30 this morning - they came from South Pine Rd. One vomited in my front garden. The others sat in the street before staggering off. I saw them try a few car doors as they went down the road.

clintp1

Hi Helen, I'm sure your police report would have reflected that the kids "tried a few car doors"... that's if you're not telling fibs...
Again, you're not doing much for the sale prospects of your sale here darling, I rent in Everton park and wholeheartedly disagree with these mythical "drunken teenagers" who are vomiting in your garden, on a Monday night none the less.
I would delete your review if I was trying to sell in the area sweetheart

I agree with helens21 regarding to the traffic and the motorcyclists treating South Pine Road as a speedway. I have moved here since March this year. However, I found this place is close to everything. I am working in the Brisbane CBD and it takes me around 30 to 35 minutes drive but it is just less then 20 minutes on non-peak hour, School holidays and weekend. It is not a lot of "drunken youths" or "noise neighbor" at my area so for me it is still a good place to stay.

"Great Suburb, Close to City"

I moved down here from Noosa in March and I love the peace and quiet of Everton Park plus the convenience of being 15 minutes from the city. Public transport is excellent as you can catch lots of different buses from South Pine Road. It's also really close to shopping centres and supermarkets. Overall, Everton Park is a great suburb to live in.

Great for

  • All facilities you could want within walking distance.
  • Lots of buses to choose from

Not great for

  • Slow moving peak hour traffic on South Pine Road

"Self-contained village"

I like the fact that I can choose from several buses along South Pine Road to get into the city or the great circle line buses to go to the major shopping centres if I don't want to drive. Great Indian restaurant on South Pine Road next to Mutzelburg dentist, lots of restaurants at nearby Enoggera, lots of medical and dental facilities in suburb, sports facilities, gyms. Nice leafy suburb. Low crime rate. Neighbourhood watch area. Road improvements to soon start to alleviate traffic in peak hour.
