"Fantastic suburb to live!"

My wife and I had moved from Melbourne to Brisbane two years ago. We have two children, a boy and a girl now aged 6 and 8 respectively. We are extremely happy to have selected Chermside West as our first home as everything is at our doorstep!

First of all, it is only 9-10 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD where I work and I usually take bus from the bus station which is just across our street! Secondly, my children are enrolled in Craigslea Primary/Secondary School (great school with recent substantial acheivement by its students) which is also just across the street! My wife could not be happier as Westfield shopping complex (the biggest shopping complex in Queenland) and shops at Gympie road are just one minute drive from our home where she can get everything! Moreover, when our kids get sick, Prince charles hospital is just two blocks from our home.

During weekends, we take our kids together with our dog to Huxtable park or Raven reserve, which is just one minute drive from our home to enjoy fresh air and our barbecue. Sometimes we take our kids to Chermside sporting centre where they have their swimming lessons. After our dinner, we also can choose from going to play bowling at Kedron (just 5-10 mins drive from home) to movies at Westfield.

Above all those, our neighbours are very friendly and supportive whenever we are in need of help. Also, the suburb is located at high ground which gives a great in many homes in the suburb.

My wife and I could not recommend a better place than Chermside west if you are looking for a house near Brisbane!
