"Great riverfront and park living"

Yeronga is very green with many parks and a great deal of river frontage. Some fantastic houses and large blocks without the price tag of other riverfront suburbs.
Did suffer some flooding in Jan 2011 but is higher than Chelmer, Graceville and Sherwood so flooding was more localised.
Pros
  • Close to UQ
  • Very green
  • Close to everything
  • Good choice of public transport
  • No flightpaths
  • No thoroughfare as it is bordered on 3 sides by river

"Rivers and Parks, a peaceful suburb"

One of my favourite suburbs to work in and now my new home of choice. One of the best park and recreation regions on the southside, with 16% in area covered by parks, far higher than any other southern suburb. Love all the access to the river through the various laneways in the "O" zones and the sporting clubs nearby.

"Gourmet Food or Garbage food?"

i loved this cafe for the food and staff but after the weekend i was sold rotten mushrooms and told to leave for complaining about the terrible food and the poor service. the staff are incompetent and lazy. not to mention their personal hygiene is disgusting sweating all over you as they take your order.

"Lovely Yeronga"

Yeronga is a great suburb. It is great for kids as it has heaps of parks, playgrounds and trees. We all love walking down by the river right on dusk.

It has got a great community feel and heaps of services including the RSL, public and private schools, churches, cafes and restarants.

The best thing about it is that it on a little bit of a peninsula so the only cars in Yeronga are those of the residents. This really assists with the serene feel of the place.

I would recommend Yeronga for anyone who is looking for a peaceful enclave with easy access to the city.

"Loved living here"

Lived here for 7 years while at uni and during the early years of my career. Loved living here because is so close to the city via bus, train or car.

The suburb has a great atmosphere, very friendly neighbours. Theres not too many restaurants but some are tucked away. The closest shopping centre is at Fairfield and its fine for grocery hopping.

"Family friendly caring community"

Yeronga is leafy and great for walks on the river. The community is friendly and caring and always ready to greet you with a smile. Neds, the local cafe at Yeronga Village makes the best Merlo coffee. Bassara Florist has the most gorgeous earrings and jewellery which is very reasonably priced. The local Hyde Road Kindergarten is fantastic for pre schoolers and St Sebastians is a wonderful little school for primary education. Yeronga Park Swimming Complex is a big part of life in Yeronga and have many swimming lessons going on any given day - it is also clean and serves great coffee too. We love it!

ErinS I had friends living in this suburb during the January 2011 floods. Their house (and many others on the street) went completely under water - be very careful buying here.
