"Lovely place but becoming expensive"

We moved here as a young family wanting a lovely safe suburb to raise our children. Though i still love Narangba, the neighborly spirit is great. 9 times out of 10 everyone is so caring and fun.
Unfortunately one thing we have experienced is crime, from crimes like stolen letterbox's, fake blood poured of work vehicle's, egging cars and houses to kids throwing rocks at cars and causing hundreds of dollars in damage, older "teens" breaking into parked cars, stealing children's bikes, damaging property, stolen cars and such... i have never had so much drama until i moved here which is sad as it is Such a lovely place with kind people, a few idiots ruined it for everyone.
Though friendly and safe through the day. At night you better have good-locks, cctv outside your home and keep everything locked up and away.
Also cat's are very welcome in Narangba :)
Pros
  • Lovely area
  • Great school's
  • Great neighbourhood and sense of community
Cons
  • Theft/Crime

"Narangba Valley - A great place to bring up kids..."

Close enough to get to the big smoke when you want to, but far enough away to have a community and know your neighbour. It's safe enough for your older kids to walk to their friends' houses in the evening, or down to the soccer or baseball fields. Lots of kids walk to and from school or to sporting events; even the shops and the tavern are walking distance. There are good doctors that are local and that are expanding their network of medical services. There are really great schools where the teachers stay over a long period of time and it creates a stable educational environment. The High School does exceptionally well academically and there are great arts/sports/dance opportunities as well. And it's only 20 mins to the beach at Redcliffe or 30 mins to the surf on the other side of Bribie! It's just a great place to bring up your kids.
Pros
  • Safe and secure
  • Great neighbourhood and sense of community
  • peaceful...at night! 10 minutes to the highway.
  • No loud parties or doof doof in the streets!
Cons
  • A nice high quality restaurant or bistro would be great to see!
  • Could do with a few more car parks at the station.

"Great Location! Overview Of Narangba"

I work at Ray White Narangba and we constantly see new people coming to this area who are surprised and impressed by what it has to offer.

Narangba is located approximately 30km north of Brisbane, just off the Bruce Highway about 15km west of Moreton Bay and the Redcliffe Peninsula. The Narangba region offers an amazing diversity of property from the pristine residential estates of Norfolk Lakes and Forest Ridge, to semi rural acreage with a real feel of the country.

Lakes and waterways linked by secluded paths and cycleways are a common feature of the attractive residential developments in the area. With it’s own train station and 40-minute rush hour journey time to Brisbane, Narangba offers a perfect balance of affordability, larger land options and practical convenience.

Narangba is ideally situated for family days out and leisure time with Lake Samsonvale and Alma Park Zoo close by, whilst Bribie Island (with it’s fishing paradise of Pumicestone Passage) and the Sunshine Coast are barely 40 minutes drive.

"Surburban Paradise"

This place ROCKS! Everything so close and easy to get into Bris. Nice people too, real community feel. There's heaps of greenery and parks around too, so it's no concrete jungle. We've been living in Narangba for about 2 years now and the schools and childcare are some of the best around. The kids love the area, they have lots of parks and places to play and they've made heaps of friends since we moved here. It's got a great community feel about the place and the people were really friendly when we first moved in. I feel like I'm part of a community, I don't just live here.
The night life may not be to everyone's taste, but I like the fact that there isn't that culture of heavy drinking, loud mouthed hoons that pervades some of the adjacent areas.
If you're looking for somewhere to raise a family, this is it!
Pros
  • No loud parties or doof doof in the streets!

"Ticks all the boxes"

I've been looking in the area for the last few months and it looks like it ticks all my boxes. Community spirited with nice people and green spaces. Good schools and childcare with good transport and commuting options. My research says that property values have held their own over the last couple of years, so I keep wondering what's the catch...............so far I haven't found one.
Hope to be someone's new neighbour soon!

"Old Fashioned Family Lifestyle"

Definitely feels like home. People here are really nice and welcoming. Schools and childcare have a great reputation. Close enough to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast with easy access to the highway, but far enough out to avoid the trappings of city life. Lots of green pockets and parks. Good quality homes at a fair price.

"Narangba - the suburban dream!"

Narangba is a fantasic, community-based area that has brilliant shopping facilities, high performing schools, great childcare and a laid-back vibe. The huge variety of living estates provide a wide range of choice to suit every taste. Only 40 minutes to Brisbane and close to the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay, it's the best place to be.

"It was once a wonderful place to live"

When we first moved to Narangba, 30 years ago, it was a wonderful place to live.
there were always koalas and possums in our trees, beautiful parrots and many other birds were always around
we all knew each other, there were families living here who were the second generation of local pioneers...the kids played in the streets, rode their bikes and kicked their footies around after school.
unfortunately the secret got out and now the serenity has been disturbed. there is so much traffic, along with the occasional imbecilic hoons who delight in dropping rubber at the end of our road.
and of course every available piece of bush is being bulldozed for even more sub standard housing, with tiny blocks being sold and barely any trees being grown to replace those destroyed by greedy developers and councils.
as for the koalas and other native wildlife that once abounded in this area? huh, good luck with spotting one now. the poor little buggers have been just about destroyed, either eaten by dogs or run over by speeding motorists...once again, thanks to the greed of the local councils and developers and the complete lack of concern by the state government for the future of these defenceless creatures.
about the only place you'll see a koala in narangba now is on the tv!
yes, once a wonderful place to live.
now?
it's just another piece of suburbia!
Pros
  • peaceful...at night! 10 minutes to the highway.
Cons
  • far too much traffic, difficult to get a parking space at the local train station.

emlyn I completely agree, each week it goes down a little further. Hoons, crime, litter. Too many houses on too small a block..... The old Narangba was much better. I think it is fine for greedy self absorbed people who love to gossip.

"Best Street in Narangba"

I'm first home owner, and we live in the perfect Narangba Valley Northfolk lakes estate,My street has a mix of people, ages and professions, although we have one thing in common is our friendship we help each other with advice on new parenting and gardening. A neighbour in our street tree gave each newly built house a new tree to plant to create a oasis. I thought of this as my first house, although I think with the neighbours and the kindship in our street ( Huron Place ) We'll be here a very long time.

Lauren Eyton We envy those who live near North folk lakes. We love it there. So quiet. Unfortunately we live off of Stark Drive and it's horrible. So many barking dogs,hooning cars and not nice neighbours. We are waiting for our chance to move somewhere better

"Wonderfull place to live"

I moved here in 2005 and have loved it every since. People are friendly, Great Schools. The suburb is fairly new so overall the homes are relatively new homes on spacious blocks. Lots of cul-de-sacs. lots of parks, playgrounds and walk ways for the kids and dogs. Tree lined streets. There are 2 supermarkets (Woolworths and IGA), for more retail therapy Northlakes and Morayfield are under 10 minutes away. Would like more places to eat out. Good Pizza Shop. There are acerage properties surrounding the built up areas so its a little like living in the country but without the distance (Only 1 set of traffic lights). Easy 5-7 Minutes to Bruce Highway and There is a train station with express train to Brisbane.

"Serenity NOW!!!"

Narangba is peaceful, beautiful and a sense of real people, who stop to chat, our neighbours we consider good friends BBQ's and drinks. Love the views of the mountains best place I have ever lived. Although my friends tell me they don't travel that far for holidays, city dwellers who live in 1 bedroom boxes and pay rent, so they can say live in the city. I own my home, have 4 bedrooms quarter of acre and pool, would not live anywhere else. 30 minutes to city, 35 minutes to Caloundra perfect.
I have travelled the world and I'm always happy to come home to my serenity in Narangba, HOME!!!!!
