Reviews of Highvale, QLD

"Is this place the next Brookfield?"

It is amazing that Mount Nebo is so close to the CBD (40 mins drive) to commute each day, yet is so peaceful and family-friendly.

More and more people are beginning to realise what a gem this place is, with an excellent State School, great local cafes and a wonderful community atmosphere.

The real estate market is really a niche market, with very limited housingstock available to buy, due to the village being surrounded by National Parks and forests. Slowly, slowly savvy investors and families are beginning to discover this little gem, which shares the same post code as its neighbour: Samford Valley.

Be quick, or miss the boat like most people have for Samford property prices...

I agree. Mount Nebo is a hidden gem. Thankfully we managed to purchase last month before the boom kicks in, but already we were up against a lot of competition to buy our property.

The colours are so vivid up here and the air is clean and cool, In fact, let's keep the secret quiet while we can! 8:]

Really lovely place from the real estate we have been looking at from Sydney. Can I ask is there a good catholic school in Highvale? I would drive to the CBD for work and daughter would drive to uni but young son is my concern. Thank you for your information in advance.

"Fantastic place to live and bring up the children"

Migrated from 'blighty' to Australia back in 2001, lived in suburbia for a couple of years then found HIGHVALE !....Have lived here (on Mt Glorious Road) for 5 years now and as a family we have never looked back. Driving back home after a hard days work (from Brisbane CBD) brings a smile to the face and makes the hard work worth while. The children love the acerage lifestyle, are out in the garden more than inside, climbing tees's, exploring & enjoy being kids & love school....Local school bus stop is just to the left of our property out the front so no roads to cross etc - you can stand on the balcony & watch the kids get on/off the school bus. We have chooks, bugs, rats, snakes & all that goes with acerage living & still love it. ! The backdrop for our property is 280 deg of mountain view (Mt Nebo, Glorious & House Mountain Range), Our neighbours are great both sides and we've all spent many a time with a few beers over a BBQ. However as my father-law said - there's no such place as paradise & the downside is the lack of public transport (for those who need or would prefer to use this), No high school - nearest state high school is 15k's away, and lack of night life for those who are looking for this - local pub only after 8.00pm...mind you this is really good & serves great pub food & child friendly. The commute from Ferny Grove (nearest station) into Brisbane CBD is 20/30 mins or so. For those who are looking for something different - Highvale & the surrounding Samford Valley is a great lifestyle for those who enjoy a quiet, friendly neighbourhood with a strong community spirit & village feel. I grew up in a village in the UK and its no different.
