"Love an old English name"

Grange is supposedly derived from Granary (an old English word for mill), this suburb is well located close to the city, parks (just south of the Kedron brook), cafes and shopping (Kedron Park Road), universities, it is in the Wilston school catchment predominantly and is full of old Queenslanders. The tunnels add to an already nearby network of major arterial roads while the suburb itself is quiet and leafy.
Pros
  • Lots of parks
  • Close to major arterial roads
  • Lots of history
  • cafes and shops close by
  • clean, leafy suburb
  • quiet

"A lovely inner North Brisbane suburb"

Situated just 5km from the city is this lovely suburb that boasts quiet, safe streets and a suburb with mainly houses and less apartment buildings. A nice place to bring up a family and ideal for professionals wanting a quiet oasis that is still very close to the CBD and all the action. Cafe lifestyle with kedron brook rd close by. Friendly community. Good schools. Nice parks. What more could you ask for?
Pros
  • quiet
  • clean, leafy suburb
  • cafes and shops close by
Cons
  • needs a good pub!

"Beautiful place to live"

Fantastic suburb, the best in the inner north in my opinion.
Quiet and leafy, with beautiful parks and walkways and some of the most amazing Queenslanders in Brisbane. Very safe and family friendly, and all within 5 km of the CBD.
The only thing it needs is a pub!

"Best suburb in the inner north"

Grange is a fantastic place to live! Very convenient to city and major routes, but the thing that makes is great is how FLAT it is! Great parks, next to Kedron Brook with it's off leash area. Nice people and a real neighbourhood spirit. Rat runners are an issue in the morning, but we're working on that...

"A lovely suburb with an abundance of parks and on the Kedron Brook - so close to the CBD"

Grange is a lovely place to raise your children. With fantastic schools and sports facilities plus right on the Kedron Brook bikeway. Neighbouring suburb to Wilston with many cafe's and restaurants. 5 klms to the CBD and 10 minutes to Chermside Shopping Centre. Frequent bus's. People are friendly and there is a lovely park right outside the local library.. I can't think of a better inner city suburb to live in.
