Reviews of Taringa, QLD

"Taringa is a well-kept secret"

Taringa is a well-kept secret. It's the western suburb with the least amount of buzz because it's situated between Indooroopilly and Toowong, both of which are known for their enormous shopping malls. Taringa features quiet streets, numerous parks, and convenient access to a variety of retail districts.

"Taringa is a hidden Gem"

Taringa is a hidden Gem. It's the less talked about suburb on the west because it's sandwiched between Indooroopilly and Toowong which are both better known because of the large shopping centres. Taringa has peaceful streets, multiple parks, and access to a variety of shopping precincts.

"not an agent - lived here for 10 years!"

We love living in Taringa. It has a nice suburban feel, but is so close to the City/CBD! Perrin Park is great, we are close to Toowong shops and Indro shopping centre, plus the river/bike track/ferrys/trains/buses etc all walking distance. it is safe and family friendly I recommend the area to all, we wouldnt change a thing!

"Wow a lot of agent reviews here"

A lot of agent reviews on here, talk about not being impartial. Taringa is like every suburb in Brisbane, pretty run down, dirty footpaths, houses in need of major renovation, creepy people around. No nice views. Its nothing to rave about but it isn't horrid either.

haha what are you talking about!? I have lived in Taringa for the past 10 years and it is none of the above! The western side of the train line has a few more older houses, but the area surrounding Perrin Park, Train station and up to the shops off Swan is all lovely, great people and families. Well maintained and plenty of facilities.

"Central to everything!!"

Taringa sits in the middle of the St Lucia, Toowong and Indooroopilly triangle. It gets access to all the best parts of those suburbs including businesses, restaurants, parks, shops, schools and the university. It's a great place to bring up a family if you can afford to get into the market with plenty of brilliant places to walk on a Sunday and grab a coffee.

"Best Suburb in Brisbane"

Close to the city, with shops and cafes nearby but still quiet. Great schools and the university just one suburb over, it's a fantastic place to raise a family. Plenty of parks and a great sense of community.

"Brisbane's number 1 suburb!"

Taringa is a fantastic little suburb. It is so close to the city but its leafy, green and nice and quiet for families and young professionals alike. Perrin Park and Jack Cook park have a number of facilities plus bike tracks and playgrounds for children. Taringa has a great sense of community and peacefulness that most inner city suburbs don't offer.
It is close to train, bus and ferry options so it is so easy to get around Brisbane and you are never too far from anything.

Of course it is 1/2 min drive from the newly renovated Indooroopilly Shopping centre plus it has its own shops at Taringa on Moggil road, as well as schools and medical centres. Also UQ is only a few minutes away for students so it really is perfect!

I have lived in a few suburbs in Brisbane over the past few years (renting) and recently moved to Taringa and loved it so much we are thinking of buying a unit here - its quiet affordable for such a well placed inner city suburb!

"Terrific Taringa"

Taringa is centrally located between Mt Coot-tha, Indooroopilly, Toowong and St Lucia. Moggill Road splits the suburb through the middle and provides easy access to the Brisbane CBD and Western Freeway. Taringa is well serviced by bus and has it's own dedicated train station.

Popular with young professionals, students and families, Taringa is just so close to the University of Queensland (St Lucia), schools and the Brisbane CBD with a good mix of houses and units. The convenient Taringa Day & Night medical centre and pharmacy are well known to most western suburbs locals.

Swann Road boasts spectacular city views and some mid rise unit developments which take full advantage.

Taringa is popular with most demographics because of it's close proximity to parks, popular amenities, excellent public transport and convenient access to Moggill Road.

"Taringa- Middle of Everywhere"

Taringa is a Northern Brisbane suburb about 15 minutes drive to the CBD. This characterful little suburb is surrounded by great suburbs like Indooroopilly and it's fantastic shopping centre, St Lucia and it's vibrant student feel and the tree lined and river edged Toowong. The houses in Taringa are of either of the pre/post war variety and have oodles of individual flair. many students from UQ rent in the area, however there are also some great suburban 'white picket fence' type streets. The only bummer is the massive and busy main roads that cut through parts of the place. All in all, Taringa has all the convenience of inner city living and is a great place to live.
