    Hi all, we hopefully will be moving to Brisbane next year, but havent a clue about areas. Which are nice and which are for want of a better word 'rough' ha. We have 2 kids (next year will be 6 and 2) so looking for nice areas with primary schools and things to do. Can anyone help please?

    Hiya have you already secured work? are you looking central,north,south etc ,this will help eliminate areas.As for areas to avoid there really arent that many ,personally i couldnt live in Kingston, Marsden, Logancentre,Woodridge going north Deception Bay,Caboolture area but as i said thats my personal opinion.

    Hi Cal, we will be going on a business visa (aluminium facades). Not sure which direction in Brisbane, because of the girls ideally not central but travelling distance to a beach (within reason, dont want to travel for ages in a car with two wee ones, shouting are we there yet!!) Sorry its a bit vague, but its quite daunting trying to pick an area when you dont know the city. But every little bit of opinion and advice helps.

    Cal/Gary you guys should start to tell some truths about areas, you have not been here long enough to know jack from **** and I might mention Jimboomba as 70% of ex LOGAN residents, you should know your area before mouthing off!

    Western suburbs are nice and we have been here for three years so have a good base knowledge from here and the immediate surroundings. Plus Mark is a bus driver so can tell a lot about some areas when he drives through!

    Timber it is my personal opionion,i said i couldnt live there,im sorry if you know me personally and have a problem with thati actually do know those areas and drive through and in them on a weekly basis ,i wouldnt live in Moss side in Manchester either and im a manchester lass .I strongly suggest you take your aresy comments and go find another playground as this one isnt suitable for you.
    Obviuosly you have been here years and know everything which is why im a little concerned you think we are ex residents of Logan.As of 15th march this year with the new council amalgamations we actually BECAME LOGAN council lead.I suggest you do some research before sprouting off .
    May i also ask you abide by the rules and stop making personal comments or we will remove you from this site
