"Probably the best suburb in Bris"

Having lived in Indooroopilly for many years and also working in the area for over a decade, I'm emotional about Indro. The suburb that has everything you need in the one postcode - immense shopping, all transport options, world-class schools, UQ close by, parks, river walks, golf courses - it has it all! Perfect for all calibres of buyers from 1st home owners to retirees and everything in between. Indro also has fantastic history and a lot of character homes. Tyler <3s Indro

"Peaceful Inner-City Locale"

Indooroopilly is a suburb that's rich in history but not outdated. Nestled along a wide expanse of the Brisbane river, the hilly and leafy suburb is only 6km from the Brisbane CBD and offers its residents peace and quiet in its inner-city locale. It features everything from beautiful and original Queenslanders, to convenient apartments and modern marvels.

A central hub for transport, the suburb offers both a train station and major bus connection. The western freeway is also easily accessible, with its connection to The Legacy Way Tunnel meaning you could be in the CBD within minutes.

After undergoing a $450 million redevelopment a few years back, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre now houses 360 retailers including a number of specialty stores and international fashion brands.

Indooroopilly is also a popular choice for families with some of the best schools in Brisbane within its locale including St Peter’s Lutheran College, Ambrose Treacy College (formally Nudgee Junior) and Indooroopilly State High.

"One of Brisbane's best suburbs with something for everyone"

Indooroopilly has it all from convenient apartments close to everything to Queenslanders in leafy back streets with mountain views and prestigious river front and golf course properties. Many are moving to the area as the reputation and results of the local schools get around to the wider Brisbane area. There is of course the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre which offers every amenity neccesary and has been recently refurbished. Bus's and trains regularly service the area making for an easy commute direct to the city.

"What a great suburb."

Indooroopilly is a lovely green suburb.
Almost a park around every corner, many choices of primary schools, high schools and universities, ample transport, close to the city, clean, safe and friendly, also close to the Wesley hospital.
I have lived in Indooroopilly my whole life and love it here, lots of things to do.

The one down side with Indooroopilly is the traffic between 7am-9am and again from 3 pm to 6 pm. Bumper to bumper stopped traffic because indooorpilly is a bit of a bottle neck suburb.
Indooroopilly is also known to be an expensive area.

Everything is right on your door step - the new expanded Indooroopilly Shopping Centre with the revamp food court and the connivence of the bus interchange. The train station is easy to access(if you need disable access go up to the actual station and use the lifts to each platform. Plenty of casual dining choice.

"I Love Indooroopilly"

Indooroopilly is one of the loveliest suburbs in Brisbane and is fast becoming a major centre. Like it's neighbour, St Lucia, Indooroopilly nestles a long expanse of the undulating Brisbane river and is very close to the Brisbane CBD yet offers peace and quiet retreat to its residents.

As the largest retail and entertainment precinct west of the Brisbane CBD, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, is a major drawcard and is surrounded by many retailers, and small businesses. Some of the most prestigious schools in Brisbane are located in Indooroopilly, including St Peter's Lutheran College, and Nudgee Junior. Indooroopilly is also home to Queensland's Premier Golf Club, Indooroopilly Golf Club, which happens to sit on some of the most valuable land in Brisbane.

There is so much to love about Indooroopilly. If you take the time to have a good look around, I'm sure you'll love it too.

Family arrived from London and has daughter booked into Indooroopilly High School for year 7 and the Spanish program there. They are looking for a nice clean fresh home to rent. Preferably with 4 bedrooms or 3 and a study. Are there any nice homes to rent in Indooroopilly or surrounding areas. I have looked on realestate.com.au and there really isn't much in the way of nice homes in the area. Can anyone help please?

"A beautiful, happy place to live."

Indooroopilly (or Indro) has been mine and my family's home for over two decades. My mum grew up a few blocks from where we live now, and nothing has changed. Kids can ride their bikes around the blocks, we still have Halloween trick or treaters, plenty of happy faces, and always a wave for people passing by. If you take the time to get to know your neighbours, they're wonderful people. All it takes is to cross that bridge, and make the effort to say 'hello'. The train station and numerous bus stops makes Indooroopilly the perfect place for a house of students, workers or commuters. There's always plenty of options - with so many great restaurants within easy reach by car, or just a stop or two away, you'll never be left wanting in terms of cuisine or entertainment. The nearby shopping centre is currently being upgraded to a luxury level centre, with many more additions over the next year and a half. It's generally a quiet suburb - the most noise you'll hear usually involves a few dogs playing, children walking home from school, or someone mowing the lawn.

"Close to everything; Great place to live!"

I've been living in "Indro" as it is known for almost a year now... living in an apartment was a bit of a change from our house in the outer suburbs that we previously had; but it has worked out really well. There are lots of public transport options; so much so that I have sold my car. The train station is a central hub where express trains run to the city; so there are more trains than at other stops closer to the city. The ride takes about 10 mins to the city on an express train. There is a bus station also at the shopping centre.

There are a few restaurants along Station Rd - though the only ones worth bothering with are the Laksa Hut and the Ashoka Indian. The others don't have very nice meals, although they seem to be busy a lot of the time. The Hog's Breath Cafe at the Coles complex opposite the train station also has great steak, which I was suprised about. The food court in the main shopping centre has loads of options; and also recommend the ribbon sandwiches and tea selection at Fleet Street Cafe (part of the Pig and Whistle Pub adjoining the main shopping centre). The Pig and Whistle is open late on weeknights and weekends for meals and drinks and has a smoking section outside.

There is an unofficial dog park/meeting point at the Indooroopilly High School Oval; lots of dog walkers about 6.30am and about 5pm at night. Make sure you take your own bags and ball. Lots of dogs there and they are all very social. We walk every morning and see the same people - many are regulars and friendly. Never seen any dogs fighting there.

The noise from the train can be painful if you are living close by. Most apartments and houses would have soundproof glass if they are reasonably new; but be prepared to have your conversations and TV interrupted if you are close. The traffic can be a bit busy, but no more than any other inner city suburb. We were using street parking for most of the year and did not have a problem. Make sure you check the signs though; parking inspectors will ticket you if you are in an unlined/unsigned zone.

All in all, Indro is a great place to live. It has a mix of students; young families; retirees and professionals and on the whole people are friendly. It's easy access to the city and public transport and not pretentious at all. Shopping is excellent and I certainly recommend it if you are looking to live reasonably close to the city. The biggest downside is that rents are quite expensive.

"Indooroopilly"

Indooroopilly is a great little suburb with a real mix of grand old homes, contemporary apartments and exclusive river front properties. It has excellent transport with both bus and train networks and lots of shopping options with the Indooroopilly shopping centre located at its heart and a few restaurant strips to catch a bite to eat. The residents are also a cosmopolitian mix of students, young couples and families. It is only 6km to the city centre and is extremelly popular amongst home buyers, so resale values are very high. Currently the suburb median is sitting at $720,456 for homes and $412,000 for units.

"Indooroopilly is a high density area some 15 mins drive west from Brisbane central."

Situated near University of Queensland campuses Indooroopilly is a high density living area and very popular with most people who go there. The terrain is a bit hilly and this adds to its character. There is a huge shopping centre where people can go and spend the day keeping themselves busy if they have nothing else to do.

Real estate is very valuable in this area for many reasons. The houses are desirable, the proximity to Brisbane, the demand for housing and the demand for rental. It is a mixture of the old, the new and the renovated.

Indooroopilly is a bustling centre and very busy at most times of the year.

Indooroopilly borders the edges of Mt Coot-tha and the very popular Brisbane Botanic Gardens on the north west and with the Brisbane River on the south-west.
