    Moving to Brisbane next week and already secured a house to rent in Auchenflower. I see we are in the Milton SS catchment. Anyone have any opinions on this school? Also, anyone aware of a local catholic school to me? Ill be based down near Auchenflower train station - I cannot seem to locate any catholic primary schools close by

    thanks :smile:

    Thanks for the info. I am aware the area was hit bad by the floods. TBH I didnt really care too much as its a rental and Im not buying the place. Im over nr Auchenflower train station so I think it probably went under is though slightly up the hill

    pls can you post a link of the flood map. I guess it might make my house contents insurance higher if its in a known flood area?

    Hi Saffy,

    We rented in Auchenflower last year in a low lying flood prone street and while, as you say, it is not the end of the world if it floods as you don't own it there are a few things to consider:

    - Some streets flood even in smaller rain events - ie not just 100 year floods. Our house flooded knee deep under the house within a few hours of some (very heavy) rain starting. My wife was at home and didn't even know the land was totally flooded until a neighbour knocked on the door as the house was raised on stumps and she never looked out the window. I had to race home from work and help her.

    - Your car might flood.

    - Anything you store under the house might flood.

    - Insurance as you mentioned.

    The house we were in flooded to the door knocker situated on the second story during the great flood of 2011 btw. We had left a few months before :)

    The hills are fairly steep near the train station so you might be ok anyway if you are up the hill a little bit.
