"Overpriced, tiny blocks"

Rochedale used to be great when it was more affordable and filled with big, spacious blocks. Now every house looks the same and they are ridiculously overpriced for the tiny parcels of land that they are on. It's close to the CBD (20 min) and has some high reputation schools.

"A great place so close to the CBD...probably the only suburb under Brisbane City Council limits where you can buy land."

Has to be one of the best potential suburbs in OZ. There is quite a lot of development land for sale at Rochedale Estates and Arise at Rochedale. It looks like the price of land is being pushed up by the demand. We looked at buying 420sqm there about 8 months ago and the price was about $320k. Now they are asking $360k for a 400sqm block. It's about 2mins drive to the M1, Gateway and the Ipswich motorway exits....you will be pleasantly surprised how close it is!!!!
Pros
  • Close to all the major highways in Brisbane
  • Just 17km to the CBD...about 20mins at peak hour traffic
  • It's very peaceful and quiet...and you are surrounded by huge mansions and nature so close to the city
Cons
  • Can't think of any

"Live like royalty in Rochedale"

Rochedale is by far one of the best places to secure land if you are looking for acreage. For the simple fact that if you drive past there you will see some giant mansions and estates on 1, 2 or 20+ acres of land. There are quite a few houses in Rochedale that are like small private resorts only minutes to the highway unis and the cbd. Check out some mega mansions in Rochedale!
