"Cracking spot- centrally located"

Absolutely love living here. So close to all that Brisbane offers. Within 3 minutes drive either way you can be at IGA Wondall, Mayfair Village down Hargreaves Rd or Wynnum Plaza just off Randall Road.

5 mins to the beautiful Wynnum or Manly waterfront and the glistening waters of Moreton Bay, 3 mins other way to the Gateway motorway with excellent access to Brisbane Airport (10mins), Sunshine Coast (1hr) and Gold Coast (45mins).

Excellent schools in the area with bus links to Wynnum or Brisbane City, several train options on the Cleveland line within 3 mins drive- Manly, Wynnum, Wynnum West and Lindum.

"Indulge in the Lifestyle of your choice!"

Spread high above the Manly harbour and extending inland, you will find the locale of Manly West, effortlessly catching the Bay breezes which offer a very welcome relief in the Summer months.
Manly West is a super area for families and offers plenty to do with its many parks and bike trails. It also boasts some of the best Schools in the area too.
If proximity to a direct City route is important, then you are in the right place here. However, don’t let that fool you! In terms of its natural beauty framing an array of housing options - you have so much to choose from. In Manly West you are spoilt for choice!
