"👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎"

I have never lived in Raceview (and never will) but I drive through it everyday and besides that it isn't a very attractive suburb, at all! It has no supermarket! It appears to have lots of public housing, there is always lots of bogans walking their kids to school so chances are you'll get bad neighbours. It does have a private primary and a public primary school. I have heard mixed reviews about the suburb from people who actually live there, more bad than good mind you! There are definitely much better suburbs to live in like Flinders View if you want/have to live near the Raceview area.

"I wouldn't live there again."

I lived in Lowood for 6 months not ever having been there before or knowing anything about it but it looked nice On the Internet. The police came to the street to the house across the road a few times but that was about it. I moved as my neighbour was very inconsiderate with their bass all day long (no one seemed to work at all) especially this family, the "man" couldn't even get off his bum to mow his lawn so the kids can go outside but other than that it wasn't a bad place to live but it's so far away and I have heard a lot of bad stories since I lived there 6 years ago. The rent is cheaper sure but you make up the rest in petrol driving to Ipswich if you want to get anything.

"As good as any other town!"

people put Ipswich down all the time but I've lived here for 6 years and have never been hassled by anyone. Some suburbs I would not live in but that's pretty normal! I mean Brisbane has Inala ;) there are some bogans, especially in the mall but they don't bother you, you go to Brisbane and their down and out people always ask for money!! It's an affordable town and it's getting better every year thanks to the Mayor. I like how it's close to everything you need like Brisbane but it's stress free (eg. Traffic) like a small town. Unless you work in Brisbane and would have to commute than moving to Ipswich might be a good idea for you as it is very affordable.

"Quiet!"

the houses are close together but the neighbours are all really good so it isn't a problem as you hear minimum noise.
Pros
  • Close to Karalee shops.
  • In Mt Crosby Primary catchment area.

"It was okay but I am glad that I have moved."

The estate off Henry St I wouldn't recommend! A lot of inconsiderate people and bogans, 4 years ago it was quite good but now, well I would never live there again.

Some of the estates look quite nice (the ones that aren't dedicated rental areas)

Brassall has a lot of good points like Woolworths, small IGA and soon to be Aldi, has McDonalds, KFC and Hungry Jacks will be opening soon, Pizza Hut, Dominoes, as well as other take away shops. Doctors, gym, video shop, parks.

I never found crime to be a problem though like someone else said.
