"Great location, Friendly people, Good public transport"

Having previously lived in Teneriffe I moved to Nundah about 3.5 years ago and have loved the friendly, family orientated and safe atmosphere. During that time I have seen a lot of development occur around the Nundah Village area and a continued regeneration occur throughout the rest of the the suburb. If Council can ensure that the developments are well thought out and controlled within a certain defined area (with no exceptions), Nundah will remain a great place to live into the future.
Pros
  • Close to public transport
  • Close to shops
  • Cafes
  • Close to post office
  • Weekend farmer markets
Cons
  • Parking around Nundah Village precinct
  • Housing starting to get pricey

"Too crowded"

We've lived in Nundah for two years and in that span of time have seen at number of mid-rises built with another 3 cranes in the sky at the moment, and a hole in the ground for another one. Recent train cuts mean that instead of Nundah being serviced by the Petrie, Caboolture and Shorncliffe service, it is now only serviced by Shorncliffe. The 7.14am train is 3 cars and standing room only.
There's little to no parking around the village, the gym has a huge membership base and no dedicated parking, this means that they spill out into the Woolworths car park which limits parking spaces for everyone else.
We've also noticed increased traffic and police cars patrolling.
In my opinion Nundah has grown too fast with insufficient planning and infrastructure.
On the plus side, it's close to the airport and has nbn (on one side of the train tracks only).

"A nightlife"

Over the last few years, Nundah has undergone major renovation from constructing cafes and gyms to improving other social services. The cafes have a good vibe but you need the money to afford these sorts of places. The nightlife is a serious ongoing issue that has never been resolved here in Nundah. For instance, the house next door got robbed twice very recently in the space of two months. Our house was also robbed and the burgalers stole everything in the house. We woke up this morning to find out car window smashed and shattered. I no longer feel safe in my own home at night. If you live here or are planning on living here, make sure to keep windows and doors locked. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend buying in this area.

"Getting too busy with traffic and people"

I have lived in Nundah for quite a few years. Nundah used to have a great relaxed, almost "country town" vibe. Now the traffic is getting horrendous (putting Sydney to shame at times!). Trying to get a park anywhere near the train is almost impossible, so even though we are several blocks from the train, cars park in front of our house and over our driveway regularly, and they seem to be gone for the day (presumably on the train?). Getting a park even in Woolworths can be difficult at times! Parking for the shops can also be very difficult - people often park in Woolworths car park to go to the shops and gym, because there is no-where else to park. Also, with the many high rise buildings, there are just too many people everywhere and it is too crowded. On the plus side, there are now quite a few cafes etc to go to - if you have the money! The wonderful local fish-and-ship shop closed, and the many current cafes are expensive. It is very difficult to just get a lovely fresh sandwich, without exotic ingredients or names, at a reasonable price. So, it's a great convenient suburb it you don't want to park anywhere, if you like lots of traffic when you do have to drive, and if you have lots of money to eat out.

"Overrated"

I've lived in nundah for about 15 years now, I've witnessed brawls, burgurly, graffiti offenders and robbery. In the afternoon it's friendly, everyone knows each other, but past 9:00pm you'd wanna be in your house safe with the doors and windows locked. Transport is fantastic with buses and trains. Local afl and rugby league sports teams. There's always a few bogans or eshays everyday though.

"Nundah - a little bit of everything"

Lived here two years, I love the variety of shops with Toombul at your fingertips. Transport is excellent, with several train lines passing through both Nundah and Toombul stations you have trains every 15 minutes, or if you drive the Tunnel is very close by. Would suit fly-in fly-out workers with the airport very close. Walking tracks are abundant around town and along the creek, fisho's - don't expect to catch any edible fish in there =P. The last 6 months has seen an influx of high rise appearing in the CBD, some more food options finally starting to appear in the main street and prices are slowly creeping up in the area, I suspect as time goes by Nundah will probably be suited to above average income earners. Overall the suburb feels very safe, from what I heard it used to be a very different suburb only 2 to 3 years ago in terms of that, suspect price rise has contributed a lot to cleaning up the suburb so to speak.

"Bridge Street , Nundah"

Hello, I've lived in Bridge Street, Nundah for the past 12 yrs. I am so glad Lord Mayor Jim Soorely proceeded with Sandgate Road traffic diversion around Nundah shopping area, creating the fantastic street scape of the up and finally coming Nundah Village. My street has period homes and worker cottages which look great as most are now renovated. It is quiet street, very little traffic and only 250 metres nice and flat stroll to Nundah Train Station and the village. The new development of Circa Nundah will be complete in November this year, thank goodness! The specialty shops, cafes, gym, restaurants and even a spa are adding so much to this wonderful place to live. The old Royal Hotel in Station Street, has been completely renovated, my friend tells me the owners have very successful bars in New Farm, so they obviously see the potential of Nundah Village. I'm so glad they moved the pokies to a basement area around the back of the pub, so you don't even know they are there. I work in the city and the trains are so often especially at peak times and my hubby works at the airport, life is very easy indeed. Woolies is in the village, even the post office. Nundah an up and coming cool area, but don't tell anyone!

"Nundah Property Update - 2012 in review"

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we had a real estate crystal ball? Unfortunately for us, none of the fabulous boutique shops we have in Nundah Village have any working ones in stock at the moment. So for now, we have to look back at the recent past to help us assess the state of our local property market.

As there is a time lag of up to 12 weeks between when a property sale is completed and the details of that sale being publicly available (through information providers such as Pricefinder or RP Data), it is only at the end of March 2013 that we can safely say we have accurate data for 2012.

According to the data provided by RP Data, 2012 saw a total of 270 true residential sales in Nundah for the year. This is up from 243 sales in 2011, and similar to the level of 2010 at 277.

Analysis from RP Data shows a decline of 4.1% of the unit median sale price during 2012. The median sale price of a 2 bedroom unit in Nundah for 2012 was $338,500, while the highest sale price achieved for a unit was $540,000 for a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and 2 garage apartment sold in October. Buyer activity in the unit marketplace has already increased with agents seeing multiple offers and strong quick results for sellers if the marketing and pricing strategy are right. In fact, based on the data received so far, the median price recorded for January 2013 for units is sitting at $388,000, and could be a sign of some recovery in this segment of the Nundah market.

For houses, the story in 2012 was considerably brighter. The median sale price for the year was $576,000, which was well above the Brisbane median of under $540,000. The annual report card shows our house median price increased by a staggering 9.1%, while many neighbouring suburbs had declines in their values. Nundah can be proud that we still have million dollar homes with our highest sale price of $1,075,000 achieved in April for a stunning 4 bedroom home on the hill with a pool on a reasonably modest 607sqm (24p) block.

It looks like the current and future redevelopment of Nundah Village is boding well for residential property owners in and around our wonderful evolving suburb.

Mark Roemermann Can Nundah's convenience be measured?

Ask most locals what it is about Nundah that they love and one of the first things we'll talk about is the convenience. It's hard not to appreciate the options we have in Nundah when it comes to transport, schools, childcare, parks, gyms, shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and other public amenities.

Proximity and access to nearby amenities is a major consideration when choosing where to live, but can this be measured and what would it mean to home owners, investors, tenants and home buyers if it could. There is now a great internet service at walkscore.com that ranks the walkabilty of locations based on proximity to consumer destinations like we have an abundance of in Nundah.

If we look at the heart of Nundah Village our vibrant shopping and dining precinct is considered a walkers paradise with a massive walkscore of 90 to 98 out of 100. To put this into perspective, Racecourse Road ASCOT scores 85 to 88 and Kedron Brook Road WILSTON scores 73 to 78, both are considered very walkable, but no walkers paradise. Yay for Nundah!!

Property analyst Michael Matusik said that his recent study "found a strong correlation between a suburb’s Walk Score & a property’s investment performance." It stands to reason that Nundah's continuing development and improvement of facilities will only continue to assist local investment returns as well as strengthen the underlying capital values.

How does your favourite local destination score? What about your home?

In conclusion, Nundah's convenience is already being measured and our humble evolving suburb rates exceptionally well on the walkscore scale. It's easy to love a walkers paradise like Nundah.

"Nundah is going ahead"

We bought 3 years ago in Nundah for 4 reasons: the tunnel, which is now complete means the city os only 8 minutes away (6 k's); Circa Nundah will be completed in 2013 and change the entire landscape with cafes and restaurants; there a council urban renewal project currently underway for much of Nundah; the airport (and DFO) is extremely close yet the suburb isn't under a major flight path.

"Nundah- Moving ahead"

Nundah is a suburb that is full of working families and young professionals. It is divided by Sandgate Road and has many private and public schools and Toombul Shopping Centre.

Locals will have noticed that many houses have been developed into mid rise unit developments as the council have released the Toombul–Nundah Major Centre Local. This local plans allows certain part of the suburb to be developed into higher density dwellings much like Chermside.

As a local Real Estate agent the suburb is popular with all age groups and is affordable for first home buyers, young professional couples and families.

"FANTASTIC SUBURB!!! WAIT TO SEE IT BOOM!!!"

We moved to Nundah around 2 years ago following a few of our friends who had done so previously as our goal was to make a great investment. As a young couple, it was important for us to find an affordable property close to public transport, shops and the city. Nundah ticks all the boxes for us! Everything we need is in close proximity including our local doctor, dentist, grocery store and gym! We find that we rarely need to leave our suburb unless we want & we are excited to see the amount of restaurants and shops developing. Circa Nundah (http://www.circanundah.com.au/) is due for completion in 2012 which in our opinion will make Nundah the next Paddington!!! If you have not already done so, make the move!!!

"A great up-and-coming suburb"

- Conveniently located 5mins from Brisbane airport, but not within an aircraft flight path.
- Great shopping facilities in Nundah village and Toombul Shopping Centre.
- Excellent public transport, 14min train to CBD.
- Schools, parks, bikeways.

Lots of development going on with apartment complexes, restaurants and office space being built near Nundah Village.

Location is everything, and Nundah is looking like a perfect growth area to live in or invest.

"Hub for retirees, students, couples..... so close to amenities"

My thoughts are that Nundah is so close to ALL types of transport, especially train and bus, it is a major source of information and direction for new retirees and their families, hop skip or jump to airport, Hamilton, Gateway, Toombul Shopping Town, Schools, Churches, Community Support Systems, Chermside Business District, Clayfield Business District, Hospitals, Recreational facilities such as Kalinga Park & it's walking tracks & parks designed for adolescents to play on their scateboards....... It really has been one of the very best suburbs especially since 1997 (with the proposed town plan changes) with many builders renovating unit blocks for Investors and First Home Buyers.........

"The little suburb that could - it's moving slow, but it will get there!"

Brilliant up-and-coming place to live. Excellent public transport, access to airport, major shopping centres, lovely local streets bound by major roads giving easy access in and out; but all within walking distance of a cosy village 'High Street'..

Get here people. If you're not already, then you're probably living at Paddington thinking that you're someone you're not..

"back to nundah"

I moved top Nundah as a 15 year old, before the tunnel. As a young adult, I can't remember much other than the gridlock at the local shops. I also recall that my parents moved to Nundah as Clayfield and Ascot was too expensive. I then bought a little house in Nundah, but when I married, was lured to the outer suburbs by bigger houses and bigger blocks. So we sold up. We never felt comfortable further out so have bought back in at Nundah. I didnt realise how great Nundah is until I moved away. Proximity to everything, sense of community, great local shops. We now live in a tiny cottage with two kids, and I wouldnt swap it for anything. Our lifestyle is pretty much perfect here, we have everything that we need. The only thing that bothers me a little is security at nightime, I dont walk at night around here, just a gut feeling. Can't wait for the Circa development. So much history if you go looking. Some great emerging shops at Nundah village and a great annual fair. Our street is very friendly and has a very broad mix of people. It's not homogenous and I hope it never becomes that way. Love it, love it, and so happy to be back!

"Long term resident -long time love affair"

I moved into Nundah in 1998 as a newlywed. I have seen the suburb grow from a cosy suburb with centerlink, tattoo shop, tab and St Vinnies full of low cost rental to a cosmopolitan neighbourhood full of young families and a cafe strip. I now have a family with two young children and the dancing groups and sporting clubs are numerous. Unlike others I am mostly for the progress the suburb has seen although I think that they are trying to put too many unit blocks in around the Toombul end of the suburb.

It has many small parks, wide quite streets, and is overall a leafy suburb that has access to two train stations and many bus stops throughout. The cafes and coffee shops are of good quality. I agree that the pubs need work but that will happen with the proposed developement. The Faux Queenslanders mentioned in another comment is due to the council planning requirement to keep with the timber and tin theme in line with the many origional queenslanders that are present in the neighbourhood. Love it Love it.

"POTENTIAL PLUS"

I love that everything you need is at your doorstep. We lived in Garfield Street which is off the main roads but still close to everything by foot. You can duck over to the local Woolworths or for more variety you can venture a kilometre down the road to Centro Toombul. In Nundah Village there are plenty of little cafes, restaurants, schools and medical facilities. Play areas and parks for the kids are easily accesible, and public transport makes heading in and out of the city a breeze. Also, with the new access roads going in at the Toombul/Clayfield boundary, you can access the Gateway motorway in a matter of minutes. Houses and units less than 10km from the centre of Brisbane are still affordable for the average home buyer. If you work in town but like to get away from the craziness of the city at the end of the day, Nundah is a perfect spot.

"Watch this space"

I moved to Nundah 3 years ago and love it. It is such a practical place to live with access to the Gateway, Bruce Highway, City and the Airport. It takes me 20 mins in the morning at 700hrs to get to work if I drive. I think it is like 15mins to the city on the train. 10min drive to the airport. When the airport link is in it will take 6 mins to get into the city and the tunnel goes right accross to the South Side.

Leafy suburb with Kallinga Park around the corner and Shaw road. I take my dog and kids for walks along the brook and have always found everyone friendly and courteous.

The resteraunts are great. Hello India does a lovely curry. My wife and I pop into Jordan for a wine and a light bite. Jam does fantastic breakfasts and Matt is always friendly. The C word has wonderful bagels that you can grab if you are in a rush. There are some cool little botique shops around.

To top it all off the guys who built James Street and the barracks are developing the industrial looking area by the train station. Check out the website www.circanundah.com.au.

Now for something negative -

The pubs need to be renovated. I have been in there for a couple of beers and was not impressed. I think once that area is developed it will have some nice pubs,

"A changing area"

I have lived at Nundah for over 11 years, in 3 different areas of this suburb. When I first moved here it was fairly quiet, with great access to shops, the relaxing local pubs and fantastic regular buses and trains. Over the last decade the community spirit of this area has given way to modern cafes, apartment blocks which obscure the lovely views and peak hour traffic congestion. The older homes steeped in character, are moved to make way for multi-unit complexes. Toombul shopping centre which was the hub of Nundah shopping, has lost it's status due to the Woolworths established in the heart of Nundah. An overpass had been built so rush hour traffic could pass through this suburb without affecting the main precinct, and maintaining the laid back feel. Since Woolworths has come, it has drawn traffic back into local streets and causes gridlock at peak times and on Thursday nights. One of the 2 local pubs was upgraded, and lost it's comfort which was replaced with martini nights, a mini night club and drunken brawls. The other local pub is a haven for violence and it has been common to see people being ejected for physical abuse. This is a high crime suburb, though it often happens at night. Train stations are not safe after dusk. Some rent prices have increased by 70% in less than 6yrs, and more. The push to "upgrade" Nundah to be more of a yuppie area, with swanky cafes to attract the young and social, masses of new apartment blocks and the Woolworths, seems to have taken away the relaxed atmosphere and made way for a more rushed lifestyle with little thought for our neighbours or neighbourhood. A decade ago I loved this area, now almost everyone I have known here has moved away. I will be doing the same.

"North Brisbane awakened?"

In the past i did not care much for the north side of brisbane although now you see people renovating old workers cottages of homesteads and bringing them back to life. It will be interesting to see what happens suburbs like Nundah over the coming years.

"Old Charmer Renewed"

The Nundah of my childhood was a sleepy, peaceful outer Brisbane suburb thats best asset was the train line straight to the city. In recent years the yuppies have spread from inner suburbs to what used to be classed as outer ones like Nundah. The prewar fibros are increasingly being replaced with faux Queenslanders and spruced up workers cottages. It is incredibly convenient though for commuting to the city and the proximity to Toombal shopping centre makes it a drawcard for many young families. There are some nice little cafes and restaurants too.
