"Quite area by the Bremer River"

I have lived in Basin Pocket for the last 5 years. I moved here because I could not afford to buy my first home in Brisbane. The homes are older but well built and have a yard. This was important to me as I have kids and they love to play outside. What attracted me to the area was it was only 2km to the ipswich cbd, 3km to the ipswich hospital and 3km to the river link shopping centre and a 15min walk to the east ipswich train stataion. It is really quite and has been a great place to raise my family. Lots of parks and close to key services. The prices are affordable too. There are small pockets which flooded in 2011 so check on the council site to see which sections were effected. However it was a small area affected.
Pros
  • Close to public transport
  • Close to shops and services
  • Quite
Cons
  • Some sections will flood in extreme conditions.
