"Big Homes on Large Blocks"

This street runs beside the Toowoomba Showgrounds and is very busy with traffic at certain times of the year. The blocks and houses are large but it is near a large quarry.

Harvey Road is a fair way out of Toowoomba, and takes a while to get into the CBD or other areas.
Taralee
Taralee I live very near to Harvey Road and, yes, while there are busy times they are about three times a year and only last for two or three days at the most. As for the quarry, I completely forget it's there, never have I heard anything. If by "a while" you mean 10 - 15 minute drive (depending on traffic), then sure, it takes a while to get to the CBD. The second most popular shopping centre in Toowoomba (Clifford Gardens) is only about a seven minute drive from Harvey Road.

As for "fair way out of Toowoomba" actually, it is part of Toowoomba. Living that near to the showground also has it's perks, as during the easter show free tickets are given to those who live around the showgrounds area. The only complaint I would have about living near the showgrounds is the noise when there are moterbike ralleys. These happen about once a year and only last for a few days, certainly not a reason to live here though

"Quiet Inner Suburban Brisbane"

Bent St is a street in the back end of Toowong. It seems closer to Taringa than Toowong proper. However, it's out of the way location means that it is very quiet and peaceful.

While probably not the best location for students, due to the lack of public transport in the area, for workers and families the location is great. It is quiet, and close to schools.

Shops are a bit of a distance, with a couple of small local stores around but no major centre close by, this is the same for nightlife and entertainment. But these are the prices you pay for a quiet road in central Brisbane

"Extremely Busy Road to get into the City"

Coronation Drive is one of the main streets into the Brisbane city for people in Toowong, Indooroopilly, and other suburbs. It converts into the Riverside Expressway, and the Pacific Motorway.

There are some fantastic hotels along Coronation Drive, which are good for visiting The Wesley Hospital. The traffic levels are extreme but the traffic moves quickly, without many stopages.

The view of the river and the city is fantastic, and the buildings are huge. The city cat and buses give Coronation Drive quick public transport to both the city and the university, so you can get anywhere in a short amount of time.

"Quiet Street in a Prime Location"

There are a lot of quiet and peaceful streets throughout Toowoomba, but few are in such a good location as Tolmie. The community feeling is fantastic, with lots of children playing and friendly families.

The houses are nice, and the gardens give the street a great view.

Cenetenary Heights High School is just around the corners as well as a small shopping complex.

"Bordering the Waterbird Habitat"

Aberdeen Street is a very quiet street, and is close to the Rangeville State Primary School and the Centenary Heights High School. There are also a few small shopping centres nearby.

But the main thing that stands out is the superb view of the Waterbird Habitat. Aberdeen is right on the habitat, which is great for weekend picnics or daily walks. There can be a lot of bird activity, which can be noisy, but for bird lovers it is a great place to be.

"Walk to Uni!"

Warren St is one of the closest streets to the University of Queensland, which is both a benefit and a burden.

Being so close is great for students, it's reletively quiet and walking to Uni saves transportation costs.

It's a bit of a distance from Toowong, so most shopping will be done at the smaller St Lucia Village. That said it's still very walkable to Toowong, and public transport is available in the many busses and the City Cat

The street is off Sir Fred Schonell Dr meaning that there is little drive through but a lot of nearby traffic. Due to it's proximity to Uni on street parking during the semester can be an issue with many students not willing to pay for parking on campus when they can park only a couple of hundred metres away for free.

"The Main Street of Tara"

The Surat Development Road is the main street of Tara, and is full of great shops including Tara Rural Supplies, the Bakery, Grocery stores, and other discount stores. This is where most of Tara does their daily shopping.

It is also the main street connecting Surat, Glenmorgan, The Gums, and Tara.

"Noisy Street on Milton Road"

Milton Street is a small street off Milton Road, so the noise can be a bit of an issue. Other than that, it is in a good location, as it is not far to the city as well as Toowong Tower shopping centre. There is also a shopping centre on Baroona Road, so it is not far to get grocerys.

The Milton Train Station is not far away, and the trains come fairly often, so you can get to where you need to go within half an hour.

"Perfect for University of Queensland Students"

Hawken Drive is the perfect location for any University of Queensland student. It is within walking distance of the uni, as well as contains the Hawken Village shopping centre for all your grocery needs. It is also very close to Toowong and has bus stops all along, so the public transport is very accessible.

It is a relatively major road, so the noise from traffic can be a problem.

The St Lucia Golf course is very close as well, so if you are a keen golfer and a student, Hawken Drive is for you!

"Tiny, quiet and friendly"

Petunia Close is a really small and friendy street. With only 8 houses, there is a great community feel. The houses are quite large with big blocks of land and beautiful gardens.

It takes only about 20 minutes to get to the city, so schools and shops are close enough for everything you need. There is absolutely no traffic problems, and there is no noise. Fantastic for people seeking a peaceful life.

"Perfect for kids - borders primary school"

Weller Street borders the Rangeville State Primary School, so it is the perfect location for a family with young kids. It is also within walking distance to the High Street Shopping Centre as well as doctors, dentists, and other health care professionals.

The noise during the day can be a bit of an issue due to the proximity of the primary school, but there is no traffic problems, and at night is a very quiet street.

"Small Community Driven Street on the outskirts of town"

Freyling Court is a very small street, but because of that it has a great community feeling. There can be a noise issue from the New England Highway, but it is very close to Fern Drive Park and Kearneys Spring Park, which is great for kids. There is also a golf driving range nearby.

Although it is a little distance to schools and shopping centres, the houses are really classy and the gardens are awesome.

College Road is literally across the road from the University of Queensland. It is the perfect location for any students, and has most of the university college's on campus along it. If anyone is considering living on campus, then College Road is the best location.

Public transport is really good at Chancellor's Place as well as health care and shopping within the university. It is a very community driven street, where everyone knows everyone else.

"Walking Distance to Picnic Point"

Apart from its community atmosphere, the main feature of Starkey Court is its proximity to Picnic Point - perfect for weekends, afternoons and special occasions. Picnic Point has a great restaurant and an even better view.

Rangeville State Primary School is really close, and is perfect for anyone with kids. It may take a bit longer to get into the city than other streets, but it is a really good looking street with heaps of gardens and is close to Heller Street Park.

justine1978
justine1978 I lived here for a few months whilst on holiday visiting my granddaughter and her two girls. Starkey court is not at all a friendly street to live in. A lot of gossip by the stay one particular stay at home mother and her friend who have nothing better to do that create trouble and strife in the street. A very emotionally cold place to live in; yes it is close to picnic point but as for neighbourly friendly street it gets a minus one out of 10 from me. one of my granddaughters went to play with a little girl in the street who lived at the front end of the street. Her mother was so very rude shouting her off the property and screaming at her. Her husband is a psychologist so I found that very interesting as her behaviour warranted that she needed psychological help. Do not live in Starkey Court as there are much better places to live which are child friendly and elderly person friendly.

"Expensive Street full of Mansions"

Leslie street borders the range, and contains some of the nicest, and biggest houses in Toowoomba. Leslie Park huge and contains heaps of play equipment for kids as well as sporting fields. Duggan Bushland is around the end of the street and has plenty of walking and bike tracks.

The view over the range is awesome, especially of Tabletop Mountain. It only takes a few minutes to get to the CBD and is close to some really great schools and shopping centres.

"100 Metres to the University of Queensland"

Upland Road is incredibly close to the University of Queensland and is perfect for any students. The public transport is really close so you can get to Toowong or the City reasonably quickly.

The noise can be quite high due to the large population of students, but this is a bonus if you are a student as well. The Hawken Village Shopping Centre is only just around the road, so you can get everything you need without needing a car.

"Golfing Paradise in a Country Town"

Hindmarsh Street in Goondiwindi is the perfect street for any golfers. It leads off into the Goondiwindi Golf Course, and nearly everyone owns their own golf buggies, so there is no lack of golfing rivals.

Because Goondiwindi is a small country town everyone is very friendly, and it is a short drive to anywhere. If you work in 'Gundy' and love golf, then Hindmarsh Street is your dream location!

"Small Street off Busy Roads"

Clayton Lane is a small stree off Woodstock Rd in Toowong. It's mainly used as an entrance to a number of apartment complexes on Maryvale St and Sherwood Rd. However, there are a number of houses along the small street.

As it's near the busy Sherwood Rd, you'd expect it to be noisy due to traffic. However, the street is remarkably quiet.

Parking is an issue as the street isn't wide enough for on street parking, so if you have more cars then parks you'll have to park on a nearby street.

Other than the issue with parking a great quiet street near central Toowong

Ellis Street is off Taylor Street and is only a short distance away from the Warrego Highway, so you can get anywhere in Toowoomba within minutes. It is also within walking distance of Captain Cook Park, which is great for kids and families. It is in a really great location and has a shopping centre across the road as well as being close to the Racecourse and the Airport.

Towards the Taylor Street end the traffic noise can be quite high, but it is very quiet at the other end of the street.

"Small Suburban Street"

St Osyth St is a small street at the Milton Rd end of Sylvan Rd. It's located close to the city, and public transport as well as near the major ways into the City in Milton and Coronation Dr. The street also has easy access onto the Western Freeway.

Like all Toowong Streets, it;s ideally located for University of Queensland students, and also close to a number of primary and secondary schools for students of all ages.

St Osyth St is a leafy green area, while this looks great it does mean a number of possums and scrub turkeys also call the local gardens home.

All in all a great street for both families and students.

"Busy street in a central location"

Sherwood Rd runs from the Toowong Village shopping centre up into more suburban Toowong. This means that while the lower (river) end is quite busy and loud, the upper end is quite quiet.

It's very close to shops, restaurants, and public transport and is centrally located to primary, secondary schools and the University of Queensland.

This means it is perfect for younger couples and singles, but it's busier areas are probably not the best for families or retirees.

"Quiet Inner City Suberban Street"

Payne St is an out of the way quiet street that is still close enough to shopping centres to be in a central location.

It isn't particularly close to public transport which can be an issue for students, or people without cars. However, it is close to schools and shops making it perfect for families or couples.

While shopping and eating out is great in the Indooroopilly area, the local nightlife is a bit lacking, with the two local hotels quite quiet and out of the way.

Jephson St is a very central location in Toowong. It has close access to the University as well as the City. A number of schools, restaurants, pubs and shopping areas. The Toowong Village shopping centre is very close, as is the RE Hotel and Regatta Hotel.

There are easy walking distance trains, buses and City Cats.

However, this street is a major thouroughfare for traffic to and from Moggil Rd and the University. This means that traffic noise can be an issue at peak times.

"A tiny street in an industrial zone"

One of the worst streets I have ever visited. Although it is mostly considered an industrial zone, there are several small houses there. Bordering Sandgate Road, the noise levels are always extreme.

There are a few nearby shopping centres and a McDonalds, however you do need to travel a fair way to do any major shopping. It also takes a long time to get into the city, which is not very convenient for anyone who works there.

"Overlooking a Golf Course"

If you are a keen golfer, then Moreton Street is the perfect place. Overlooking the 18 hole Dalby Golf Course, it is a nice, quiet street that is close to the centre of Dalby.

Pretty much ever house on this street owns their own golf cart, so if you are looking for a golfing partner there are dozens of potential competitors. Because of the size of Dalby you can get anywhere within a few minutes, as well as living on one of the nicest streets in town.

Summing up, the golf course is the hub of Moreton Street and would be perfect for retirees.

"Great Inner Suburb Living"

Sylvan Rd is a great place to live. Half way between the Brisbane City and the University of Queensland it is an amazing location.

Shopping wise the street is close to Toowong Village, a small shopping centre and only a train ride, or five minute drive, from the larger Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.

Close to Toowong State School and the presitigous Brisbane Boys College, as well as an easy bus or City Cat ride to UQ, Sylvan Rd has great access to educational institutions.

On the river end of the Street is the well known Regatta Hotel and adjoining restauants, a bustling night spot for people of all ages, but especially a hot spot for UQ students.

Traffic can be a noise factor due it's proximity to the major Coronation Drive and Milton Rd.
