"It WAS good"

Everyone knows that Mansfield's schools are good, so that is a plus point for the area. I have been in Mansfield for over 10 years and it has changed. My house has been graffitied (2012), broken into (2019) and vandalised (2020). Transport is good and it has good access to the highways, shops and parks. I had to add extra security at great cost to feel safe. If you are going to move here, full secure fencing, full security screens and alarms are a must. I want out!

"Quiet, Leafy and Friendly"

Absolutely loved the location and everything else. Lots of nice parks and picnic grounds. Excellent schools along with nice quiet location away from the hustle and bustle but yet still not too far from everything (including two Westfields!). Above all else, such friendly warm neighbours to top it all of.

"Lovely and Leafy"

I moved to Mansfield with my wife a year ago with a view to starting our family. We chose this location for its many benefits such as:

1. Excellent choice of schools (public and private) ie Mansfield State High which is highly sought after;
2. Quite leafy streets and parks with minimal through traffic;
3. Good access to public transport with buses that go direct to the city where I work or a short drive to Coorparoo train station;
4. Shopping and entertainment (in between Garden City and Carindale Westfields);
5. Ease of access to the southern hwys to the Gold Coast for weekend trips; and
6. Capital growth potential (for example it borders on to the affluent Carindale) and is within 10km of the CBD and has a high proportion of owner/occupiers so people take pride in their homes and neighbourhoods.

We love the peaceful and safe lifestyle the suburb provides and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxed and comfortable way of life.
