"Used to live there but had to move out"

Can be a transient neighbourhood with some residents who don't care too much for their properties, not the safest place either. We used to love it but decided to move out 2 years ago.
Cons
  • Not safe
  • Not clean
  • Noise
  • Traffic
  • Try hard

"Has changed - for the worse"

I have lived in Newmarket for 15 years and it was such a well located unpretentious suburb but now the residents are desperate to make this an upmarket "try hard" suburb. Traffic has also become a massive problem. We are looking to move in 12 months.
Pros
  • Close to city
Cons
  • Try hard
  • Traffic
  • Noise

"The best suburb in Brisbane!"

So close to everything and so beautiful. I've lived in numerous suburbs of Brisbane, but Newmarket takes the cake. The most quaint and quiet suburb I have lived in. Everyone is friendly. Really close to public transport which goes all through the night.

Plus, if you go down certain streets, you get an amazing view of the city!

"Great suburb very handy to everything!"

Newmarket is so close to EVERYTHING! Close to the Sunshine Coast, sooo close to the City centre, close to airport, lots of shopping options especially with Ashgrove next door, close to Kelvin Grove for students, lots of playgroups in the area, lots of good Doctors and dentists, libraries very close by (Grange and Ashgrove), childcare centers, I could go on. Extremely convenient, good neighbours overall, no loud parties, just lots of gardening!
