""Wishart Outlook Estate" - A Unique Estate!"

Known locally as “WISHART OUTLOOK” estate and part of Eight Mile Plains, very centrally located within easy access of all the major arterials: Gateway, Gold Coast, City and Ipswich Motorways. As the local Ray White Agent I constantly have people wanting to upsize and downsize in the Estate, no one wants to leave!! This unique estate boasts five children’s parks located within the estate, and a separate dog walking park located on the Holmead road entrance. Locals are spoilt by a walking/bicycle path encompassing the whole estate and connected by three footbridges over the Bulimba creek into Wishart and beyond.
The Hub of “Wishart Outlook” Estate is “The Outlook” shopping centre located on Holmead Road, featuring a SPAR supermarket, Hairdresser, Beauty Salon, and a Bakery as well as two Childcare Centres owned and operated by locals.
Park and Ride is available at the Eight Mile Plains Busway conveniently located at the end of Holmead road, or a myriad of bus stops dotted along Nardie St and Holmead Roads.
Neighbourhood Watch is active in the estate and holds regular meetings, the Watch also hosts a well attended Carols by Candlelight in November each year, a great way to meet the locals.
Pros
  • Daycare cente and convenience store within walking distance
  • Good state schools within 5 mins drive

"Surounded by housing commission areas and highways"

The area is not nice to look at, go down to the local shopping centre, schools and especially the unemployment office if you want to get a better idea of who lives here.

graffitti, not close to anything special other than some big shopping centres, a hike to town, terrible public transport, nothing special to talk about the restaurants or local pubs, the pubs are more expensive to eat at than the restaurants, how does that work?

Did not like this area at all, could not wait to leave, check out the bought and sold prices over the last 10 years, not a great return and still declining above average.

There are better choices around for the same sort of money.
Cons
  • Rough and unappealing area
  • overpriced
  • bad resale value
  • No schools within walking distance of the Wishart Outlook section of Eight Mile Plains
blahdeeblah
blahdeeblah Kaindec things 18 places is everywhere lol :-)
I have written a lot of positive things as are there to be seen, I tell it as it is and I have no vested interest, if people are so sensitive that an opinion of a stranger can upset them to this degree then I feel sorry for them. I am not an agent, I do have investments, one of them is in Quakers Hill, if you read my review ther you will see that I am honest and base my reviews on fact rather than doing what a lot of people do and romantasize a suburb for pure self gain. I actually write a review telling people to "check thing out for themselves", I feel for people who go into property get sucked into all the hype and then lose a lot of money as did a lotm of people in Quakers Hill/ Kellyville/Rouse Hill, I was fortunate enought to be able to ride ti out but I will never forget my neighbour in tears on my lougeroom floor crying as she lost her house telling "the agent said this place was going to double". If there is no fact to my reviews then this would be easy to check and it is after all my opinion based on MY experience, from ME driving around, ME looking up sales history and ME crunching numbers on the FACTS. At the end of the day, people will buy where they want to live and everyones opinion is different, your comment on the other hand does not make sense and is mostly untrue and purely a sour grapes instant react insult based on no fact what so ever other than guessing and making false accusations.
I would call someone who has nothing to do a person who stalks people comments and posts multi repeat comments along with insults because someone has dared to speak their mind( not supposed to do that on this site if you had read the terms and conditions)

golfers You don't tell it as it is, you tell it as you see it. Far from being fact, like you said, it is your opinion based on your experience. Our experience is always coloured by our subjective views and we all would do well to be conscious of that. Again, don't confuse your opinion with fact.

JadeT Hi Blahdeeblah... Are you sure you are talking about 8ML? Located on a cross of three major arterial roads (Logan Motoway, Gateway and Pacific Motorway) is 'not close to anything'??? Are you serious? We can get anywhere 'special' in a few minutes! Even more if you want to have a nice day trip to the coast you don't need to spend too much time travelling through suburban areas. In any direction! Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, West or East - you have a very quick access to all! Still if you don't have a car - here is a busway! Commission housing, declining value... You certainly don't know area well enough to provide your rating. I have impression that you probably copied and pasted your comment about an area elsewhere... Please do not misrepresent this or any other suburb, because you obviously either don't know what you are talking about or have no experience to compare with other suburbs.

SimC Blahdeeblah has lost their marbles....There is no unemployment office in Eight Mile Plains or graffiti. You are just an attention seeker on the internet.

"Wishart Outlook (Eight Mile Plains) - great transport, fantastic neighbourhood"

Have lived in the Wishart Outlook area for 3 years and it is truely lovely. It is leafy green, quiet and cosy, friendly neighbours and plent of parks for the kids. Arterial roads to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast as well as the city are close by making weekend getaways very easy. During the week, we take the local bus to the city. The bus is excellent (Run # 161) as it runs express to the city after completing a loop of Wishart Outlook. The bus is extremely reliable, on-time and never so crowded that it bypasses your stop. Highly recommend this spot to those who need to get into the city daily, and are looking for a quiet friendly neighbourhood.
Pros
  • Daycare cente and convenience store within walking distance
  • Montessori within 5 mins drive
  • Good state schools within 5 mins drive
Cons
  • No schools within walking distance of the Wishart Outlook section of Eight Mile Plains

"Gotta love it"

Eight mile plains is only 10 min from the city (by car) and 25-30 min (by bus).. It is very close to a major shopping centre - Garden city. Proximity to restaurants - the glen hotel, sunnybank for those people who like asian food, nandos, etc. Eight mile plains bus stop is one of the busiests bus stops in Brisbane. With the introduction of UQ buses, it is getting really hard to get parking spots. There are quite a number of child care centres for families.

"Great property close to highway"

Big fan of Eight Mile Plains with its big blocks and brand new construction. I visted a client there once and the home was just so amazing. If you want reasonably priced homes then look no further than EIght Mile Plains. Also great location close to uni's and not to far from the city form the highway.
