"Lota is Brisbane's hidden gem!"

I'm not sure that people realise half of Lota's streets extend into Manly. A lovely, leafy suburb with a gorgeous community feel.
Pros
  • Close to bay
  • Parks and natural areas
  • Quiet and peaceful
Cons
  • Can be some biting midges at times

"Just like being on holiday . . . everyday"

Tucked away in a very quiet peaceful place, is a lovely little suburb called Lota. Although it is only right next to Manly, it is at the end of the esplanade where unless you are scenic driving or visiting an admired friend or relative, you would not ever need to travel the quaint tree lined streets.

Lots of new built homes but still many beautifully restored homes and replica homes. A resident for many many years, I love the sense of community feel, walking to the many local parks or along the waterfront, knowing how lucky we are to everyday feel like being on holiday. Escape the hustle and bustle with only a hop skip & jump to all busy society need (state schools, private schools, fine dining, casual dining, 30 mins to Brisbane CBD, by train or motor vehicle) The list just goes on . . . . sorry I can't chat all night, I want to sit on my deck and smell the bay air while I enjoy a lovely barbeque with my wonderful and very very lucky family.
