"Best place ever!"

Everything you could ever want in a suburb. A ton of restaurants $10-15 dollar meals. A primary and high school. Buses goes everywhere you want to go. 129, 130, 132, 133, 136, 137, 139, 140, 599. (Buses to griffith, qut, uq, city) There is a bus every 5 minutes in the morning. A ton of shops, strong competition in super markets means lower prices for you. Close to gym, bowling, pool, cinema, sporting clubs. One of the few places where you can get access to asian super markets. Got everything at your door step.
Pros
  • Chinese Restaurant at Sunnybank Plaza
  • Fantastic eateries
  • Public transport options
  • Sporting clubs
Cons
  • Inconsiderate young people walking on the street at night talking loudly sometimes
  • Not enough parking built at shops during peak hours.

"Everything is here!"

I've lived in Sunnybank since December 2010 and I have found it a great place to live. Everything you need is here; a tonne of restaurants, lots of shopping options including Sunnybank Plaza and a Westfield only 5 minutes away; cinemas, universities nearby, excellent public transport options with the 130, 139, 150, and great circle lines plus Altandi and Sunnybank Station. There are also bike ways nearby in Macgregor for cyclists. I live a two streets back from Mains road and don't hear any of the noise except for when trucks use compression brakes. I can't think of anywhere else with everything at your fingertips (except for maybe the CBD, haha).
Pros
  • Fantastic eateries
  • Public transport options
  • Less than 15km to Brisbane city
  • Quiet neighbourhoods
Cons
  • Parking in some areas can be difficult
  • Mains Road can get very busy in peak hour

"The place is very unsafe, people are not nice, the food is horrible."

The place is very unsafe, my house got robbed a few times and my car got broken into many times. Too many people from different background that don't want to get along and want to live their way only.
Cons
  • Too many people and crowded
  • Too noisey and busy
  • Mains Road can get very busy in peak hour
  • No real sense of community
  • Lots of young kids hanging out
  • No parking
  • Too many drug dealers and gangsters
FaWang
FaWang Totally agree. Currently living in this area but considering moving to toowong. I moved to this suburb because of its lower rental costs but you get what you pay for. People are rude, too many minorities and marginalised groups, too far from city, cars rarely give way to pedestrians. In summary, simply horrible.

samd28 It's a busy place because people like it. House rubbery exist because people at Sunnybank have lots of cash money. There are 1000s of carparks here, yet full? That means we're on business. And literally 100s of food providers are at Sunnybank with a great price. You can order the old fish n chips if you don't like them.

"Ritzy and quiet"

In my short time living at Sunnybank, I found it to be a nice place to live, but a lot of the community didn't like to mix. The local Rugby League club, however is as passionately followed and played for as any around. Public transport services the area as well as any suburb. Also, it's located nicely. Not to far from the CBD, but not too close. And, there is Griffith University not too far away at Mt Gravatt too.
Pros
  • Chinese Restaurant at Sunnybank Plaza
  • Sporting clubs
  • Quiet neighbourhoods
Cons
  • No real sense of community
  • Mains Road can get very busy in peak hour
