"Unique riverfront suburb"

Yeronga has the benefits of river access, parks and walks but easy access to the CBD and great public transport. New amenity coming with Yeerongpilly Green.

"Yeronga reminds me of the place you draw as a child"

I love selling homes in Yeronga

Yeronga reminds me of the place you draw as a child when you are told to draw where you want to live. The wooden houses, The leafy parks, The winding river, and the community vibe. Perfect for families, professionals, ANYONE!
The fact that it is a quiet Riverside precinct tucked away and hidden from the rest of Brisbane makes it very special. Even now it still holds the 'hidden gem' profile although people are starting to discover Yeronga and falling in love. You will notice that there is never too much on the market in Yeronga at any one time. This is because no-one wants to move out of the area and if they do, we find that they always come back to settle down.
Yeronga has a mix of people and property. The type of property ranges from units, townhomes to family households and stunning Riverfront Yeronga is close to the University and major hospitals as well as being only 7km from Brisbane City which can be accessed by Train or Bus.

Yeronga is steeped in History with the original women's military hospital (Rhyndarra ),
Why live anywhere else :)

"Convenient Riverside Suburb"

Leafy green riverside suburb with parks and recreational facilities good for families. Trains and buses are available and it is just a short ride to the city and UQ. City is only 6km away and driving only takes 10mins during non peak hours. South Bank and West End is closeby. Yeerongpilly Green is walking distance away and once it is fully developed with shops and cafes will bring greater vibrancy to the area.

Rentals in Yeronga

"Lots of housing commission"

I have lived in Yeronga now for 2 years and to say the least, it has been absolutely terrible. The first year of living here there have been murders, people's remains found in bins, an armed robbery where a man nearly got his throat slit. From my understanding there are alot of housing commission in Yeronga and thus meaning alot of questionable people roam the streets.

My wife and I live in Yeronga street and through the Facebook group "Yeronga residents" it is clear that many many many houses/ cars get broken into and even armed robberies.

Only last week did we come home to a middle aged women high on drugs in our backyard.

My wife and I do enjoy the easy access of the train station, however i would refrain using it any time after 9pm due to the people that hang around it at that time.

I would much rather live in Sherwood, Fair field or Oxley than live in Yeronga. The reasons mentioned above are the reasons we are moving.

We use to live on the riverside of the suburb, however the train station is embarassingly bad and run down, and unfortunately there are too many cheap rentals to ever make it blue chip...

Yeronga is very green and is a great location on the river across from Indooroopilly Golf course and the university of Queensland. Has train and bus transport. The new Yeerongpilly Green development will be great for Yeronga and Tennyson.

Yeronga is a great suburb, green, on the river, close to UQ and many parts have city views - only ~6km from the cbd. Has 2 train stations and plenty of buses. Is beside Qld Tennis Centre. Yeerongpilly Green will provide excellent new facilities and should push the value up further.

I absolutely love Yeronga. I’ve lived all over Brisbane and the Gold Coast and it’s by far the best place I’ve lived. The lifestyle you get from living close to the city, the river, parks, wildlife is well worth the premium to buy.

Thanks for your insightful comment

I agree, the train station is very run down, challenging to walk over (I am young and fit), and despite the generous median house price, does have a high proportion of low price rental properties, and has some very rough people, and yes we use to live on the river side which is better. Fairfield, Indooroopilly, St Lucia are much more respectable.

Yeronga is a great suburb on the river. It has Tennyson and Fairfield on either side which are good suburbs and Annerley across which has a good edge to it. Very close to Southbank and West End.

"Unique - so close to the city and Uni, on the river with great transport"

Yeronga is a unique suburb in a pocket on the river. It has a great community feel, many parks and cycle routes, coffee shops, access to the river and University of Queensland. Public transport is good with bus and train options and Yeronga is only 5-6km from the CBD. It will benefit from the Yeerongpilly Green development which will provide upmarket retail options.

"Under the radar"

Yeronga seems to be a well kept secret. We discovered the suburb by accident. It's close to rail lines and has a great bus network. Approx 6km or so from the CBD and minutes by train from South Bank. Many parks and walking tracks. Great riverfront location, generally quite high. Quaint shops. We are also looking forward to the Yeerongpilly Green development on the Tennyson/Yeerongpilly/Yeronga border as it will bring some great shopping and nightlife. That will round Yeronga out perfectly.

"Green, exclusive and close to CBD"

I’ve typically lived in the inner east of Brisbane - and Yeronga is so much better. It’s that much closer to the city, little through traffic as the suburb is tucked away on the river bend, excellent transport, sooo many parks (they cover 1/3 of Yeronga), fantastic, grand river front properties and lovely, long standing neighbours.

Only 8 mins by train to Southbank and can get into the CBD in less than 15 minutes. Great access to the airport via Clem7 then Airport Link. Good schools and close to UQ.

Used to live across the river in Graceville and loved it, but Yeronga is much easier to get to CBD and UQ. Yeronga is on the train line and has good bus services. Yeerongpilly Green could put Yeronga on the map.

One of my favourite suburbs to work in and now my new home of choice.

"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.

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!

Very nice house .A little small.No diswasher.Air conditioning is an added bonus.Been on the rental market for a while.Must be fussy owners.

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.

A couple of streets flooded but much of Yeronga is high and well above Graceville and Chelmer.

Totally agree that Yeronga is a great family friendly suburb, close to city but hidden away
