"Pretty suburb"

I live in the neighbouring suburb, Alex Hills but have been really impressed by Birkdale as well. There are some lovely houses in Birkdale and everyone seems to be very house proud. There are a few great dog parks and bush walks near Valentine Rd. Not to mention, it is close to Cleveland and Wello which have some great eating options and Capalaba shops.
Pros
  • Clean suburb
  • Nice houses
  • Community spirit

"Green leafy suburb"

Looks like a nice area, we drove around Birkdale looking at rental houses, hoping to find something here or nearby Wellington Point, or Thorneside. Lovely canal and waterways and a dog friendly off leash area on the Esplanade.

"Average suburb"

Average suburb tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane CBD. Quite pricey homes in the area yet every so often affordable houses pop up. Limited demographic more suitable for families and retirees.

"A very handy location for everyone"

Birkdlale is close to transport, schools, shops, a gym, cinemas, major shopping centre. It is a 7 minute drive to the waterfront. It is in a very convenient location. It is a short ten minute drive to Manly and Wynnum.

"A lovely suburb on the shores of Moreton Bay"

A lovely, friendly, family orientated suburb close to the waterfront. We enjoy daily strolls along the waterfront and around Aquatic Paradise. Many great parks close by. Beautiful Wellington Point reserve just down the road and the shops at Capalaba just 5 mins away in the car. Great restaurants and cafes at Wellington Point and Cleveland.

We've really noticed how friendly it is around here since moving the area 6 months ago. Far enough from the city to feel like its own separate town, but close enough to commute everyday. And also on the train line.

Nice local shopping centre at Birkdale Fair with a Woolies, cafes, chemist, medical centre etc. And great schools and plenty of daycare centres - the perfect suburb for families.

"Quiet leafy area, close to transport and shops"

Just out of the mainstream, close to the bayside, major shopping areas. A short drive to Cleveland and Wellington Point for a coffee or a meal by the water. Easy access to the city, or to the Gateway - leading to Sunshine and Gold Coasts.
