"Hardly ever home? This is a place for You!"

If you are hardly ever home, and Kippa Ring is close to your work than that would be the only thing that would draw me to this suburb. Kippa Ring is the suburb everyone cuts through to get to Redcliffe, Scarborough and the City. There is no rail line so you must rely soley on buses and taxis for public transport. Although it is close to beach if you like to spend time relaxing on the sand with the not so favouable smelly seawater splashing at your feet. Or the man made lagoon, which the Council often neglects to maintain properly. There are certainly nicers areas to live in than Kippa Ring. It would not even come into my top 10.
