"Convenient and Affordable and Attractive!"

Wynnum West sits inland from the coastal line of Wynnum but don’t let that interfere with your search to find a home in this area. A five minute drive will see you strolling along the jetty and not for one moment missing out on all that Wynnum alone has to offer by way of parks and restaurants. In fact, if you choose Wynnum West, not only are you closer to many sporting venues such as Active Arena sports, the BMX track and many bike paths but you are also benefiting from a more direct access in to the City.
Housing is also considered more affordable but non-the-less attractive as its counterparts in Wynnum and Manly. Come the turning of the seasons, you are met with a myriad of trees exploding in colour and fragrance, from the Frangipanies to the stunning Jacarandas which line the roads and streets.

"Moved into Wynnum West - greeted by cockroaches on street and loud music through the night"

This suburb is NOT quiet and is NOT family friendly despite people trying to pretend it is here.

It is noisy, and it is dirty. Do not let people here delude you.

Not all bad, it is a cheap place to live and great for students and hipsters looking for a noisy cheap lifestyle. But move to Wynnum/Manly for families, and peace and quiet.

  • Noisy

"Bayside living - close enough yet FAR enough from the CBD."

Relaxed lifestyle, country-town feel. so there's no big westfields with david jones or myer here, but there's all the big supermarkets and boutique retail outlets. Take the kids down to the big park down on the water or go for bike ride or run along the bay. Enough restaurants to keep you happy, and many fantastic take out places too. House prices are more affordable and there's a great variety to choose from. One might think the commute to the CBD is a bit long (approx 40mins), but the average person in Sydney does the same distance and further every day.
Before we moved out to Wynnum we heard that once you move there you don't move back closer to the CBD. Now that we're there, we can see why.

matthewr3 Wynnum West is NOT bayside. That's Wynnum and Manly, you've got your suburbs mixed up.
