"First Start"

We brought out first home in Strathpine mainly due to accessibility to the train. It's a long journey for a city based professional but the cost of houses is affordable and our neighbours are lovely. The local shopping centre is close by and it is easy to pick up savings at Aldi and walk next door to Coles for anything else. Lawnton Country Markets and Warburton Meats also are very reasonable. Good coffee however is a drive to Bold at Bald Hills or Cleanskin at Brendale. Our home was in excellent condition but if you need any renovations (or even livestock feed if you want chickens) with the industrial area of Brendale next door it's a breeze. The main park is amazing and there appears to be plenty of options for young families. I won't deny isn't a slightly rough area but I've never felt unsafe.
Pros
  • Reasonably priced
  • Great Parks
Cons
  • Lack of good coffee

"Convenient"

If you are looking for a quiet leafy surburb, well this isn't it. Move to The Gap, Ashgrove, Bardon ,etc. If you are looking for somewhere convenient to the city ( bus and train), good shopping ( westfield) movies, restaurants etc well they are here. Not my ideal suburb for families but young professionals,retired and singles, uni students it is pretty good. It is not a bogan area with a dangerous feel ( like many suburbs around Logan or Ipswich). I feel safe here even late at night.. It is not where I would build my dream home but it is what it is.

"Strathpine - a place to call home."

I have resided here for the past 20 odd years and really, compared to other suburbs , have found nothing really to complain about. Our children have grown into well adjusted adults, after good schooling, great friends, and a strong sense of belonging to the community. There is a plethora of sports on offer, activitives to maintain our children's interest and a caring sense of responsibility from the adults within the community from which they can learn from. It is easy to be critical, without being actively involved. Get with it, get the community spirit!

"Strathpine- Great access to beaches, only 20kms from CBD"

We moved here about 3 years ago. Like many we had to shop within our budget and when compared to other affordable areas we felt Strathpine was the best option. Then after spending some time here, we realised how handy it was to beaches on the sunshine coast and the amazing hinterland. 4x4 and dirt bike riding in state forests. Picnicing at Lake Samsonvale. Historical villages like Dayboro. Having brendale industrial estate is very handy, a big variety of services and trades. All the major retail chains along Gympie Rd. Public transport is very good. Fast access to the Gateway motorway and Gympie Rd. My only complaint about Strathpine would be the occasional hooning

"Growing hub across age groups"

Strathpine is growing as a business hub with many additions - new bus station, new courthouse, light industrial businesses on the edges in new subdivisions at Brendale. Demand for housing can only increase.

It's family friendly for all ages parks, sporting venues, clubs, multiple school and educational options, plus good public transport options. With the rail link being built to Redcliffe this will only increase.

"Strathpine the Jewel in the Crown"

Absolutely love this place! Strathpine is being rediscovered by people of all ages and walks of life.
You may ask why? It offers so much and only 21kms to the heart of the Brisbane CBD.
The Suburb and surrounds are now diverse enough for you to live work and play. With a great selection of Shopping Centres and State & Private Schools. We are on the Caboolture Rail line with 2 Stations the original in Strathpine and of course the ever popular Bray Park Station.

It's simply a great place to live!!!! Love it!!!! Embrace it!!!!!!

"Dull and Rough Area to live"

Lived there for two years and hated every minute of it. Went on holiday got broken into and house trashed. Went away for a weekend and you find beer bottles on your garden. Shopping area run down and full of miserable people. The residential bumhole of Queensland!!!

"Location, location, location!"

We recently sold our house and in three years the value of our property has gone up $100k. All we had to do was a little bit of tidying up around the yard and little minor presentation work on the house. Transport is great, so we both catch the train to work and save on car expenses. We always knew it would be a good investment because of it's location to everything.

"Great Place for the Family"

The greatest asset of Strathpine is its proximity to everything. Whatever you want, it's literally within walking distance from your front door. Transport is also exceptionally handy. This is why houses in our street are being sold within days of being listed. With the road traffic into the city becoming intolerable, being able to catch the train easily is invaluable. You can save yourself around $10 000 per year not requiring a second car and also save the stress of driving to work while you're at it! Our neighbours are fantastic and keep an eye on the house while we're out. We've been here five years and love it - couldn't be happier.

"not the prettiest town but pretty good place to live"

This area seems like it's built up enough to cater for young families and those nearing retirement. It's got something for everybody. The Westfields is a mecca for the local youth on a thursday night. There's a nice big park on the edge of the retail estate and some great indoor play centres for toddlers and little one's. There's a good community feel to the area, cinema's are well positioned with bowling and activity centre ensuring there's enough for young people to keep them entertained and off the streets. A slight hoon element on the roads in this area is to be expected especially on the fringes (Bray Park, Warner, Samford) There's plenty of rental properties in this area, some slightly over priced but there's heaps around so there isn't much pressure when renting if you choose to do so. Houses for sale again is the same problem, there's almost an over saturation on the market but this is counterbalanced as only a few are priced realistically. There seems to have been a recent spate of mortgagee sales to add to the sales data in this area which seems to indicate maybe some owner forced sales by their lenders which again indicates a falling value between asking price and achieved sale price. Plenty of takeaways and eateries and some nice bakeries especially the bakery near Blockbuster Video, and don't settle for eagle boys or dominos, Pizza Capers near Noodle box is the best place to go, eat in/takeaway or delivery. If you get bored of Strathpine it's twenty minutes in the car to Chermside which is huge.

"Family orientated suburb, with good facilites to suit everyone"

Having lived in Strathpine most of my life i have seen alot of changes. There are lots of parks, with play equipment for children, boat ramps and Bbq's. The main park holds various events throughout the year such as car shows and the christmas concert. There are public and private schools both primary and secondary. One of the main High Schools being Pine Rivers High which offers excellent resources for education and establising a career and many opportunities for extra activity. Many child care centres are located within Strathpine. There is rail, bus and taxi services available. Westfields shopping centre is the main shopping zone with the main street of Strathpine holding many smaller shops and businesses. The local Moreton Bay council, Centrelink, Medicare, Respite and Disability services can also be found. There is a private hospital, plenty of medical centres, imaging and Qml and Chemists to choose from. Plenty of dining choices are available such as Sizzler, Gillholleys, The four mile creek hotel and the usual take away shops and fast food places. Lawn bowls, ten pin bowling, gyms, local pool, cinemas, game zones and sporting clubs are also located within the area. Strathpine is a well rounded suburb with almost everything in it and easy to get to.

"A country town"

Strathpine is on the northern side of Brisbane approximately half an hour from the central business district. It's full of agricultural retail outlets and used car lots. To say that it's not a pretty place is a slight understatement to say the least. It's hot, flat and full of relatively unhappy people. Or perhaps it was just coincidence that every time I've ever been there, the locals were just having a really bad day. It has a fair share of industrial estates and a poor excuse of a high school. The Westfield shopping centre does offer some retail respite and there is a Sizzler across the road for the more culinarily discerning locals.
aande61
aande61 If you take a look at the Logan area you will think Strathpine is heaven. been considering both for investment purposes and though Logan is cheaper I cant bring myself to buy down there. True Strathpine isnt pretty like The Gap for example but it is convenient and feels relatively safe.

CraigJohnston
CraigJohnston I agree aande61, Strathpine is much better then Logan. You can still buy houses from $300k average price is $350k. Give me a call at David Deane Real Estate if you want to buy an investment.
