"Not that great"

The area is not that great, the high school is also not that great. Public transport access is also bad. The bus service is slow!

"close to the bay and motorway"

We just moved to Wynnum West recently due to recommendations from family and we are absolutely loving the area! We are super close to the motorway, have absolutely lovely neighbours and just dash 5 minutes down the road to reach the bay.

Ideal for a young family, quiet and friendly with amenities (shops, trains, buses and motorway) close by.

"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

There are no train stations called "Wynnum West" but that is because they still use the historical suburb name of "Lindum" for our station. There are several train stations in walking distance that service Wynnum West and surrounding suburbs so im confused by this comment. Just wanted to clear up for others.

"Great Retail Offerings!"

My 3rd Preference of living in Brisbane!

Wynnum West Probably has one of QLD's best Retail Offerings! It has Kmart, Coles, Woolworths, Choice Discounts, Cash Converters, Rivers & a Lot More! Also has McDonalds, Red Rooster & Hungry Jacks outside the Wynnum Plaza Mall plus the Manly Boat Harbour & Brisbane CBD all Close by! This is the suburb for all your retail needs!

"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.

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

nataliec22

I agree with everything you've said Betty - our kids love swimming at pandanus beach and riding bikes down to the mangroves along the waterfront - all walking/riding distance. Matthew has had a bad experience but Wynnum West, is bayside, its also got the benefit of having better access to motorway :)
