"A lovely town with all your needs within 5 minutes"

IGA and Foodworks underpin a commercial centre that allows you buy all your needs without parking hassles or travel.

its closer to Toowoomba's North Centre and West than some parts of Tooowomba on double lane highway.

Has 3 mega employers with small businesses galore and the commercial activity will only grow as Toowoomba creeps westwards and the Charlton Centre / Wellcamp airport expands.

Good schools and sporting clubs.
Pros
  • All the benefits of living near Toowoomba without the cost or hassle.
Cons
  • People from Toowoomba look down their noses when you mention Oakey; Frankly they wouldn't know!

"Love Oakey!!"

I have lived in Oakey my whole life of 22 years & I don't want to live anywhere else. I enjoy travelling in Australia and overseas, but I love coming home to what I know to be the best place to live!!

"Great little town with big heart!!"

Oakey is a great small town with everything you need - great Supa IGA supermarket, Foodworks, Fuel, Post, Restaurants, Cafes, Newsagent, Hairdressers, Primary and High Schools, Parks and friendly locals.
For anything that isn't available in Oakey, Toowoomba is a short 20 minute drive away!
Great lifestyle for singles, families, retirees.

horseman Your comments sound more like a local real estate agent and no town is suited for every type of person. Upon visiting this town I found no transport available eg: buses or trains, over $50 for a cab fare to Toowoomba, so I imagine that to live in this town you would have to own a car or have access to one.So, if you would be elderley I can not imagine living in this town unless you had imediate family. This is why after consideration Toowoomba was a much better option for value for money when it came to facilities.
