"Best Suburb to live in (Everything accessible - Shopping mall, Private and Gov school, Banks, Medical facilities,Parks)"

We moved to Strathpine in March 2019 and my experience staying here is fantastic.
The best thing about Strathpine is accessibility to all the must have things such as:
1) Medical facilities.
2) Pine river park - One of the best parks.
3) Shopping Mall.
4) Three Railway stations nearby - Strathpine station, Bray park station and Bald hills station.
5) Private and State school.

Safety wise - This is one of the safest suburbs and safer for kids too.

With 'Meadows' and 'David Deane' building many new houses Strathpine has many options for people who want to opt for brand new houses.

"How's the serenity."

My wife and I purchased a Strathpine home on a whim, not knowing a great deal about the outer northern suburbs of Brisbane. Initially drawn to the architecture of a 1970's home (with enormous potential) on a securely fenced, 800 + sqm block backing onto acres of green parkland - our experience to date has been extremely positive.

Strathpine and surrounding suburbs are very well serviced; the quality of fresh produce from the Lawnton Markets and neighbouring Warbuton Butcher is topnotch. Should supermarkets be more your jam, the Strathpine Centre offers Coles, Woolworths and Aldi...also a parade of Brisbane's finest fashion choices. Special mention to the IGA at the bottom of Bells Pocket Road for their great range and always friendly service.

For the home renovator, there are 2 Bunnings options (Lawnton & Brendale), Lawnton Landscaping Supplies and the Brendale Brewing Co for a delicious selection of beers (the Essential Industry Hazy IPA is a cracker).

While the suburb is best described as working class, the streets are quiet, the neighbours friendly yet respectful and the area feels very safe. Occasionally, the serenity is disrupted by the knocking exhaust note of a blue VT Commodore ute - if you are reading this slow down, you peanut.

Outside of peak hours, Brisneyland CBD is just 40 minutes by car, the area is also very well serviced by rail. Strathpine is a short drive to the bayside suburbs of Brighton and Shorncliffe, and under an hour to the southern end of the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

Possibly the jewel in Strathpine's crown is her green spaces. Pine Rivers Park is lovely as is Rob Akers Reserve, home to a small koala population, Saturday morning roller derby and the Pine Rivers Swans (AFL).

In summary, very happy to have purchased a home in Strathpine. While still affordable, the suburb is a wonderful opportunity for first home buyers and young families to enter the Brisbane real estate market - there are some lovely streets. And with continued development, improving infrastructure and the University of Queensland expanding their Moreton Bay campus, there is enormous potential for future growth.

My wife, 2 dogs, cat, 3 chickens and I highly recommend considering Strathpine.

"Our first home"

We bought our first home in Strathpine on Oct 2017 so just over a year we have been here now and we absolutely love it. Our neighbours are lovely and the street is quiet. It’s a great area for families and first home buyers. We won’t be going anywhere for a while. There is great coffee at Cafe Two 14 which is located in the Strathpine center and also great coffee at Silky Oak which is in a super convenient location on Gympie road and the staff are lovely too. There’s the Warbys butchers up the road and Aussie seafood house and Country markets if you prefer not to shop at Coles etc. everything is in a great location and close by. Genisis Gym is close by and is massive with a pool up the road too. We go for a walk every night and I have never felt unsafe in the area. Theres also the pine rivers park which is huge and is a big hit when the nephews come over, again it’s really close. Oh and not to forget the all you can eat buffet at Jaylianos!
It’s a great choice for first home buyers or people wanting bang for your buck as it’s affordable but not too far from the city/ sunny coast.

oliviao We are off Grahams road and there is a new estate that has just opened down the back which looks nice. We are on Lord Byron Parade and its a quiet street all these streets are pretty quiet. Bells pocket road would be louder and I dont think I would buy on that road as its long and straight and people often speed, especially with little ones Id avoid it. Some of the places I would avoid would just be really close to the shopping center and train station but other then that we have been really happy in this area.

"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

"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.

"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 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!!!!!!

I'm a Strathbogan though and through. You won't find a better place to live. This suburb has the lot. Shops including our very own Westfield Shopping Town, transport, great schools, excellent medical including our own private hospital what else could you want. You can cast a line down at Bob Bell park and even catch your self a feed. All this only 21 kms to the CBD. Check us out and see what you have been missing....You will never want to leave:-)

"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.
