    We're also moving around the same time. Can I ask, what's attracted you to Wynnum. We also liked the look of it but my job will be north of the river, so we ruled out any southern suburbs due to the (perceived) pain of crossing the river at peak time.

    I'm keen to share/swap information if you're up for it.

    well there were a few reasons why we chose wynnum, it seems like a nice place with plenty surrounding it for the kids. i have a cousin that lives there so i know someone nearby and as my wife will be working within the city there is a rail station close by for her comute to work. apart from all this i dont know much about any other areas, i just know that there is so much more to offer me and my family where ever i live around brisbane!

    Sorry to butt in,lol, but just wanted to say since the opening of the 2nd Gateway bridge a few months ago commute times are not as bad as they used to be if going North to South or vice versa.

    Welcome .... :wink: .... We are living in neighbouring Manly ... and there are at least two other members on here who live nearby - in Lota and Manly. One of our favourite places in Wynnum waterfront wading pool and whale park!! Feel free to shout out if you need to ask anything ...

    Yep, this is one of the things that attracted us too. Still unsure about the commute over the bridge though. I used to live on Merseyside and the tunnels could be a pain at peak-time. Plus the toll, of course.
    Still, the problem at the moment is information overload. We're definitely going to drive around a dozen suburbs to get a feel for the place. So if you see some pale looking kerb-crawlers, don't call the police.

    I think when you drive around, you'll be amazed how much it will either love or hate a particular area. We quickly wiped out some of the places we had originally pinpointed - believe me, some are very different "in the flesh"!! If you can be fairly flexible and open-minded, you will give yourselves the best opportunity to secure the area/proerty that really ticks the boxes.
