Location and Amenities
Location is one of the key things buyers with families consider when purchasing a home, and the convenience that accompanies real estate in Carindale appeals to growing families. As an established suburb located only eight kilometres east of Brisbane’s CBD, Carindale is positioned within easy reach of the city and close to the Gateway Arterial Motorway, meaning residents have easy access to both north and south coasts, Brisbane domestic and international airports, and the CBD via car or public transport. However, Carindale’s middle-ring location means that it is still far enough from the city centre to retain the highly desirable suburban feel.
