The top kid-friendly SE Queensland suburbs revealed

12.12.18 - Housing and Property Market

When we talk about family homes and the lifestyles they need to facilitate, what we’re all really talking about his kids. And, the same can be said for the suburb you choose to live. It’s as much about close proximity to great schools, parks, community activity, sports teams and neighbours as it is to do with your commute times. A place that is safe, suitable and supportive to families with kids makes a big difference to your wellbeing and lifestyle. We understand that at Clarendon and strive to build in areas that work with and for families. So, we were thrilled to find out that the recent CoreLogic data released on the top kid-friendly suburbs (based on the current and growing population percentage of kids 0-9) in SE Queensland were also the suburbs we build, and offer house and land packages.


Closest display centre: Rochedale

According to the CoreLogic data, the suburb that came out on top for kid-friendliness is coastal Wakerley, situated east of Brisbane and connected to the Gateway Motorway (so great for parents too!). With an array of highly-regarded private and public schools, parklands and wildlife close by, it’s little wonder it topped the list. With 20.5% of the population in the 0-9 demographic, the neighbourhood has a great community focus and support of kids being able to safely explore their surroundings. We not only build in Wakerley, we also offer house and land packages in neighbouring Wynnum at our High Park Estate (just 8 min drive from Wakerley). These wonderful homes can cater for all family sizes and lifestyles and offer a lot for your investment.

Closest display centre: Pallara

Heathwood listed as having 18.9% of its population occupied by 0-9 year olds, and the newly developing suburb is building itself around families, which is a huge bonus. The quiet area has become known for its large blocks, allowing for big backyards and with sizeable home builds, and has produced wonderful parks for kids to explore and play. With easy access to major roads heading to the city and the coast, it’s also perfect for commuting parents wanting to live in a little slice of family-based tranquility. If this sounds right up your alley, come and visit our close-by Pallara Display Centre for some home inspo; or, if house and land is what you’re looking for, we have a range of beautiful homes available in neighbouring Greenbank with our Covella Estate (houses below).
