"Big enough for Macca's"

Once a beautiful quiet town...
Now it's daily sirens, police were surprised to hear we've had no problems. Set up for a bus service that doesn't exist. Doesn't have a decent local High School, but we have a Maccas. No planning, just put in as many homes as you can... The roads were already at maximum capacity. 2mins to the motorway is now 15...

"Karalee - The Place to be"

Moved here over 12 years ago with my Husband and three boys to get away from the drugs and crime we experienced in Oxley. I have no intention on moving away as this is a wonderful safe environment to bring up a family. The neighbours are great - not in your pocket but their so you can ask them to help if you need them. Schools are wonderful and access to high schools are endless. The only concern that I would have is that the footpaths need to be upgraded along with some of the roads.

"Great area"

Watch Karalee Boom once the Hwy is finished... only 35min to Brisbane city. Straight run no traffic lights wow.

"A place to make money"

Karalee is awesome, it has made me very wealthy. The only issue I have with this suburb is the councillor. She has been in for too long and does nothing for the community. For the period she has been in all we've got is some crapy footpaths yet we pay the highest rates in the area. There are still areas that flood, there is no real recreational area, the footpaths are sparce. She takes recognition for the developers work like shopping centres. When she installs a park (after doing nothing for years and collecting her $150,000 pay a year) she makes a big deal of it...wow we got a park!!! So what!

If Karalee got an active councillor that had some spice in Government, Karalee would be going leaps and bounds. Give her up Karalee lets move on to some young spark who can get us more for our dollar.

"A family friendly area"

Karalee is a beautiful area to live in with: large lots, a small shopping village with a Woolworths, a local primary school, reasonable commute and a beautiful semi-rural feel. There are no noisy neighbours here other than the birds! A great place for families because of the quiet streets and large properties to play on. Most yards are around an acre, enough room to own a horse. There is an abundance of parks and wildlife, many of which you will find living in your property. Located next to two rivers with stunning views. The boundaries between Karalee, Barellan Point and Chuwar (the two neighbouring suburbs) only exist on maps; these three suburbs are cut from the same stone!
