"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.
