"Nice growing suburb with huge potential"

I use to live on the Border of Thornlands and its a handy suburb for anyone to live in. It has a small shopping Centre called Crystal Gardens with an IGA and about half a dozen smaller shops. It sits between Cleveland with its nice Cafes and boutique shops and Victoria Point Shopping Centre to the South with its Restaurants, cinema and Retail outlets. There is a future shopping Centre planned called Paradise Gardens which will have its own Woolworths on Panorama Dr near Boundary Rd intersection. In terms of public transport the nearest train station is at Cleveland. There is also a new bus station being built soon at Victoria Point.

"Great place to live"

Moved to Redland Bay from busy Melbourne and love it. The Bay is close by and houses are affordable for a bayside suburb. People are friendly and there are some nice parks. Infrastructure is being added with more to come with Weinum Creek and Shoreline Developments starting very soon. Currently we have the Red Edge shopping Centre which has about 15 shops and also we have Redland Bay Village which is our small town centre which is slowly growing. We had a 7Eleven and drive through coffee club open a few months ago. There is also the Donald Rd shops which has expanded to allow for more shops. The barge from Weinum creek can take you to the small islands of the mainland, furthermore Brisbane CBD is a 50 min drive and Gold Coast 45min drive.

camillev We are looking to move to the area. I am originally from Redlands but have been on the Gold Coast for 10 years. Just wondering if Weinum Creek and Shoreline Developments are approved?

AjB1 Shoreline is approved. Right now they are doing the road upgrades. Giles Rd intersection has just been upgraded, Double Jump and Boundary Rd are next to be upgraded. Weinum Creek development has been taken over by the Council. They have purchased a large block of land next to Weinum Creek and plan to first build car park at the moment

camillev Thanks so much. So if you were going to purchase in the area would you recommend Weinum creek end or closer to down where Shoreline will be? Theres not much down that way atm is there?

AjB1 Not much down where shoreline is at the moment, only farmland. There is a new estate called the crossing behind the new 7eleven in the northen end of Redland Bay. Its 4 min from Weinum creek and 4 min from Victoria Point Shopping Centre and 2 min from Redland Bay village. Or you got stage 3 of Park edge release if you want something quiter with greenery. There are some newly built houses there, its off Collins Rd at the Roundabout. Its 2 min from Rededge shops and 4 min from Redland Village and 5 from Weinum creek.

"A growing town which has it all"

Victoria point has it all. Its a growing area with the water 5 minutes away, victoria point shopping centre, restaurants and cafes, medical facilities, gyms and parks, not to mention redlands hospital 15 minutes away, 35 minutes to the airport and 40 min to the city with affordable housing compared to Melbourne and Sydney. Brisbane is catching up to Melbourne and Sydney and history shows that houses near water with ample facilities always perform very well. Just to let you know im talking about victoria point in brisbane just realized this is in victoria
